As with previous years, the partnership will still incorporate a number of other elements such as the ‘Mick George Training Academy’ sponsorship, commercial waste services to all club facilities, as well as numerous additional community and fan engagement offerings.

The news capped off a great day (December 20), as the club secured a lucrative third round FA Cup clash against Premier League leaders Chelsea, after coming through a second round replay against Notts County

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd commented: “We have built a genuine and valued affinity with both the club and supporters since we became the front of shirt sponsor in 2014 and consider that we are seen as much a partner and fellow fan as opposed to just a corporate sponsor.

“Through our association with the club, which dates back well before the shirt sponsorship commenced, we have regularly invested in the club supporting The Posh Foundation, The Training Academy at Nene Park and more recently the Chris Turner Memorial Fund amongst others.

“We are fundamentally a local business, employing over 1,000 local people who continuously supporting local initiatives whether it be through sport, employment, social or community and be it through commercial partnerships, fund raising or donations.

“We are proud to be the club’s front of shirt sponsor and hope that by signing a three year extension to the current deal, it reflects the fantastic relationship that has been built between the Mick George Group, Peterborough United FC and its supporters.”
