Covers' logo is featured on the back of the Portsmouth FC shirt.

Builders’ merchant has got football covered

Published:  28 May, 2013

As a proud supporter of all things local, Covers Timber & Builders Merchants is delighted to be one of the main sponsors of the new Portsmouth FC shirt.

The shirt, which was unveiled on Friday 17 May aboard HMC Warrior, features the Covers logo on the back of both the home and away kits.

Portsmouth FC shares a number of Covers' values, being a family-friendly club which supports the local community, making them ideal to receive the backing of Covers, a family-run business.

"We always like to get involved with events in the local community and this was an excellent opportunity to show support for our local club,” said Covers commercial director Henry Green. “Portsmouth FC is a brilliant club and we wish them every bit of luck for a successful season to come."

Steve Weston, regional director of Covers, added: "We are immensely grateful to Portsmouth for this opportunity. We've stuck with the team through thick and thin, having sponsored their North Stand in the past, and we are pleased and excited to be continuing our relationship with the club for another year."
