Hygiene specialist Christeyns has extended its laundry sponsorship with Bradford City AFC. The laundry chemicals specialist has renewed its laundry sponsorship deal now set to run until the end of the 2022/23 season, helping the club save thousands of pounds in laundry supplies.

At its University of Bradford Stadium home, on Valley Parade, Bradford City, nicknamed the Bantams, is home to over 150 players, incorporating the reserves, the development squad, the Academy as well as the first team.  With several versions of the club strip, including home, away and training, there are over 210 sets of kit to wash in a week, not to mention towels and physiotherapy blankets.

Michael Shackleton, commercial manager at Bradford City, said: “We would like to thank Christeyns for their continued generosity and support.   The laundry sponsorship has been a real benefit to the club, not only with superbly clean kit but helping us save on energy and water usage too. “

The laundry operates at least six days a week for seven hours a day.  Keeping the kit pitch perfect is not an easy job and top quality, tried and tested detergents are essential to keep things running smoothly.

Justin Kerslake, operations director Christeyns, pictured with Michael Shackleton, said: “We are delighted to continue our involvement with Bradford City and hope that it will be a successful next season for all the squads. It’s a pleasure to play our part in making sure all the players look their best.”

Founded in 1903 and pioneers of professional association football in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the Bantams’ stadium seats over 25,000 spectators and boasts over 14,000 season-ticket holders.
