Argyle are delighted to announce longstanding sponsor Beacon Electrical have furthered their commitment to the club which sees them take naming rights of the Mayflower Grandstand, becoming the latest organisation to join our expanding partnership portfolio.
The Mayflower Grandstand will now become ‘The Beacon Electrical Mayflower Grandstand’ with the Devon-based electrical brand lengthening their relationship with Argyle for a further five years.
Beacon Electrical, a family run business, first sponsored the club in 1983 when they were the club’s first ever front of shirt sponsor and have appeared at Home Park in some capacity for 40 years ever since.
Argyle Head of Commercial James Greenacre is thrilled to see Beacon Electrical strengthen their commitment to the club and commented: “The relationship between the club and Beacon Electrical is one of incredible longevity.
“It really showcases the value that both entities have provided each other over the years, and I am delighted that the Mayflower Stand will now become The Beacon Electrical Mayflower Grandstand.”
Greenacre continued: “Beacon Electrical are a family run business with the community at their heart which aligns perfectly with the values we live by every day at Argyle. It is an exciting time for the club as we head into the Sky Bet Championship for the first time since 2010, and it is great that Beacon have strengthened their partnership and really bought into what we are aiming to achieve.
“I am looking forward to seeing the relationship flourish over the next five years and want to thank Nick and Mark for their faith and commitment to be a part of our evolving success story.”
Beacon Electrical is owned and run by passionate Argyle fans who will also use the partnership to engage with the Green Army and deliver an array of match day activities at Home Park throughout the season.
Nick Higgins of Beacon Electrical added: "We are really proud to strengthen our sponsorship relationship with Plymouth Argyle in this very exciting new season back in the Championship. The sponsorship of the Beacon Electrical Mayflower Grandstand is a huge opportunity to showcase how Plymouth Argyle and local businesses like ours can work together and support each other.
"Beacon Electrical is a family run Plymouth business which has been trading since 1976, and supporting Plymouth Argyle with sponsorship since the great 1983-4 season. We were the first sponsors on the front of Argyle's shirts, and also famously appeared on them as Argyle got through to the FA Cup semi-final against Watford.
"Since then, Beacon Electrical has continued to support not only Plymouth Argyle, but also many other local sports teams in Rugby, Youth Football, Table Tennis, Hockey and many other sports. We see this as a way of investing directly in the local community and in turn the success of our Business is thanks to the support from our local customers."
