Gloucester City AFC are proud to announce we have partnered with X-Blades to supply our playing and training kit for the next 5 years. This signals the club’s intent on building positive and innovative long term commercial relationships with Gloucester City AFC the first football team (professional or semi-professional) to wear X-Blades kit in the world. We’re also proud to announce that our Home kit sponsor for the 2018-2019 season will be Holt JCB.

Lee Jenkinson, CEO at X-Blades Sports UK explained,

“From our first meeting with Gloucester City it was obvious that they have huge ambitions for the upcoming years and their ethos surrounding how they are going to achieve their ambitions resonated with the ethos of X-Blades Sports. Partnering with our first football club was a decision that we didn’t rush into and we wanted to find a partner that we could grow with which Gloucester City fitted in perfectly. With our 5 year partnership just underway we are hugely excited to see what the upcoming seasons bring both on and off the field.”

Chairman Rod Jenner said of the new Partnership,

After being approached by a number of kit suppliers, we felt that X-Blades was the right move for us. It’s a very exciting prospect to be the only football team, either professionally or semi-professionally to be wearing X-Blades kit and for us it puts out a signal of intent that we aren’t just looking along the same old avenues when it comes to commercial partnerships. X-Blades already has a huge presence in the world of rugby and we are proud that for their first foray into the world of football they have chosen to work with us. Also, with the X-Blades store at Gloucester Quays, it represents an opportunity for us to have a presence in the City before our return next year.”

With regards to our new sponsorship deal, we’re immensely proud Holt JCB have come in as kit sponsors. Holt JCB has over 30 years experience of selling JCB equipment and after sales services, making it one of the most successful and longest running JCB dealers in the world.”

“These well-known national and international brands share the vision that we have for the club and see not only its amazing story of survival but also the incredible potential this club has. We are a sleeping giant which is finally starting to wake up.”  

Eamonn McGurk echoed our Chairman’s sentiments,

“It’s testament to the hard work put in by the management team over the second half of last season that companies like X-Blades are now coming forward and want to work with us. There hasn’t been such a positive buzz like this at Gloucester City in all my 21 years of being involved with the Club and it’s these sorts of new relationships which highlight this.”

“In Marc and Will, I think we’ve got the best management team in National League football and off the field, with the team Rod is putting together, I think we’ve finally got the beginnings of the organisation which is capable of bringing the Club home. Furthermore, I am currently in advanced discussions with some more exciting new sponsors which the club will look to announce soon.”
