Staffordshire University Renew Platinum Partnership on Multi-Year Basis

3 August 2023

Port Vale FC are delighted to confirm that Staffordshire University will be extending their Platinum Partnership with the club on a multi-year basis.

With more than 10,000 students on campus here in the UK and thousands studying at partner organisations worldwide, the University continues to drive innovation and change, aiming to positively disrupt the higher education sector.

Over the past 5 years, they have transformed into a Gold standard provider of teaching and learning, gaining historically high positions in the UK league tables. With digital skills being at their core. The University strives for diversity in all its forms and plays an important role in our local communities and regional economies. 

The extension of the partnership will also see Staffordshire University remain as official Port Vale FC rear-of-shirt sponsor for the upcoming 2023/24 season and beyond as well as official naming partners of the popular Staffordshire University Fan Zone.



Speaking of the partnership renewal, Port Vale FC’s Head of Commercial, Ritchie Bates, said:

“I am thrilled to continue to have Staffordshire University on board with the club. Their support to Port Vale FC over the years has been invaluable and we are proud to continue our relationship for seasons to come.

“As part of the partnership, we, as a club, are excited to continue work with Staffs Uni to offer invaluable work experience to students looking to pave their way into the football industry and beyond.

“I look forward to working closely with the fantastic team at Staffordshire University in the coming seasons.” 

Martin Tideswell, Director of Communities and Commercial Engagement at Staffordshire University, said:

“Staffordshire University is delighted to renew its partnership with Port Vale Football Club for the next three seasons.

“As a civic university we are extremely proud to be working alongside this heritage sporting brand which puts sport, health, fitness and the community at the heart of everything it does. “This will be our 10th year as principal partner of the football club. We are looking forward to building on our strong and positive partnership to create more opportunities for students and collaborate on community development projects which improve the lives of local people.

“We are very much looking forward to seeing supporters in the Staffordshire University FanZone on match days and working with Port Vale FC across a variety of aspirational initiatives."
