Brighton’s favourite family Italian restaurant, Donatello, has been named as the official sponsor of the Brighton and Hove Albion dugout at the Amex Stadium this season.
The sponsorship announcement comes days after they were named sponsor of the Seagulls’ pre-season friendly against Lazio of Rome on 31 July and it marks a ten-year relationship with the club.
Donatello’s name will appear on the head rests of all seating in the dugout area, where managers, substitutes and other staff will sit during the Seagull’s home matches.
The Addis family, owners of Donatello said: “We are so happy to be sponsoring this area for a team that is close to our hearts and who we have supported for many, many years.”
Paul Rogers, Commercial & Premium Partnerships Manager and former player at Brighton and Hove Albion, said: “Donatello is such a favourite of ours and of our fans; we are delighted to have them on board this season.
“We first worked with Sue and her family team almost ten years ago and we feel that it’s vital to maintain these local business connections. It’s not only good for business but for the local community, and therefore the morale of the entire club. To be able to support each other is what it’s all about.”
