Prime Gaming, Amazon Prime’s destination for gamers, has today announced an exclusive two-year shirt sponsorship with EFL League Two’s Stevenage FC.
The sponsorship will run until the end of the 2022/23 season and will see the Prime Gaming logo appear on both the home and away kits of football club Stevenage.
Stevenage will debut the new shirts during the club’s pre-season friendly game against Crystal Palace on July 23rd. Replica shirts will be available to pre-order from the Stevenage club store from today (July 22nd).
The news comes after Stevenage FC completed its two-year partnership with Burger King. The Stevenage Challenge saw gamers in 13 countries score goals with Stevenage in FIFA to win Burger King meals, making Stevenage FC become the most used team in the game at the time.
“We are excited to partner with a club like Stevenage, that much like Prime Gaming, is ambitious, innovative and places an emphasis on being customer-obsessed,” commented Larry Plotnick, GM of Prime Gaming.
“Stevenage has a great reputation for building a passionate and loyal community which aligns very much with our ambitions. As customer focused organizations both serving passionate communities, we think this is a great fit. We have a lot of exciting plans in the coming months.”
Stuart Dinsey, Stevenage FC director, added: “This partnership with one of the biggest companies in the world is hugely exciting. Our values are closely aligned and just like gamers, we want to try and reach the next level, having plenty of fun along the way.”
Every month, Prime Gaming members receive exclusive in-game loot for certain titles, free games, a free subscription on Twitch, plus everything else included with an Amazon Prime membership.
