Synectics Solutions Sponsor Railway Stand & Paddock

21 October 2015

Port Vale Football Club is delighted to announce that Synectics Solutions have sponsored the Railway Stand and Paddock.

Based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, the company has been building data management and software products for other businesses for over 23 years.

The business recently sponsored Anthony Grant, Ben Purkiss and Michael O’Connor for the season and has now strengthened its partnership with the club by putting its name to one of Vale Park’s most popular terraces.

Raj Athwal, Port Vale’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Port Vale are delighted to welcome Synectics as one of our platform of commercial and community partners. 

“They have been extremely professional throughout our discussions and we are only too pleased to announce them as one of our major partners. 

“The ethos this season has been to engage with local and regional businesses for the good of the local community. 

“This year we have witnessed an increase in organisations taking advantage of the opportunities Port Vale has to offer. 

“One of the successes has been the inception of the Business Alliance which Synectics will be a part of enabling them to engage with local organisations.”

Synectics Solutions’ Managing Director, Carol Shanahan, said, “We at Synectics Solutions are incredibly excited about the relocation of our business to Burslem, and appreciate the warm reception we have received from everyone at Port Vale FC. 

"I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my recent attendances at a number of home games, as I get to know the club better, and have been made to feel tremendously welcome, from the fans in the Railway Paddock all the way through to the Chairman.

"As part of our company’s commitment to strengthen our links with the club, we’re delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Railway Stand at Vale Park, in addition to our recent sponsorship of three of the club’s players.  

"We’re all looking forward to developing an increasingly positive and close relationship with the club and the local community in Burslem.”
