News from the Championship as Southampton FC have announced Draper Tools as the back of the shirt sponsor ahead of the 2023-24 season.
The local Hampshire based business Draper Tools return as the clubs shirt sponsor 40 years after first working with the Saints.
Draper Tools originally sponsored the Southampton shirts for nine years between 1984 and 1993.
The Draper Tools logo will appear on the lower back of the 2023-24 Southampton shirts whilst it will appear on the shorts of the Southampton Womens team.
Matt Sheen, CEO for Draper Tools said: “We at Draper Tools are very proud to be one of the partners of Southampton FC men’s and women’s teams this season. As a family business, our local community has always been important to us, and we’ve never forgotten our history with the club. Recent years have seen us support the work of the club’s official charity, Saints Foundation, so it feels really special for our relationship with the club to enter this exciting new chapter. After a difficult last season for the men’s team, it’s now all about supporting them in what will be a very competitive EFL Championship. Being a lifelong fan, like many of my Draper colleagues, the nostalgia involved in this partnership feels great too.”
