Owners of Cotswoldnew.com What Digital (UK) Ltd is delighted to be able to confirm that for the 2020-21 season we are officially a proud partner of Reading football club who ply their trade in the English Championship.

Sport at all levels has taken a total battering with the COVID-19 virus with fans being unable to access venues to show their support. During the early days of Corona there no sports even active and football teams such as Reading FC are feeling the strain due to the complete collapse of gate receipts. Many of our employees are avid football fans, and we are delighted as a Bracknell based business to be able to support our local football club.

Financial hardship has been an issue for many different industries, and of course, this impacts downwards on many individuals. Spokesperson for owners of Cotswold News, Alex McDowell said this, “We are delighted to be able to offer this sponsorship opportunity that will help the club go from strength to strength during these difficult times whilst also having the opportunity to grow our brand via the connection with professional football. Being a local Reading born and bred chap, I have followed the Royals my whole life and this really is an exciting time.”

Shane McGourty, Director for WHATJOBS? speaks for us all when he said “English football attracts huge domestic and international interest, so it provides a brilliant platform for us to increase awareness of our brand. More importantly, in this unique time of mass job losses due to the coronavirus pandemic, our platform will help tailor local job searches in a simple but comprehensive way to help you, your family or your friends during these difficult times.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Reading Football Club, and I hope the association with the Royals will ultimately offer support and help to people, young and old, looking for a new job across a wide range of sectors not only in the Reading area but in the UK or overseas via our global network.”

Tim Kilpatrick, Head of Sales and Partnerships at Reading Football Club, said: “We’re very pleased to confirm WhatJobs as our latest Official Club Partner. We would like to say that the whole team here at Reading Football Club is thrilled to have this opportunity and we look forward to the season together.
