New shirt sponsor confirmed

The Pompey Site has confirmed that we now have a new shirt sponsor - see image above.

A 3-year deal has been agreed with Jobsite, an online recruitment agency, that will also see the Fratton End now known as Jobsite Stand - although Fratton End to us still.

More info can be found below...




Jobsite are Pompey's new main club sponsor after signing a three-year contract with the club.

The deal with the industry-leading online recruitment site will see the Jobsite logo appear on all first-team shirts, training wear and replica kit.

The news comes in an exciting week for Portsmouth Football Club with the arrival of Sulaiman Al Fahim as chairman and Paul Hart's appointment as manager.

As part of the agreement to become the club's main sponsors the Fratton end will now be known as the Jobsite Stand.

Jobsite chief executive officer Keith Potts said: "Portsmouth Football Club is closely aligned with our brand values; they're a down-to-earth, straight-talking, hard-working club who are renowned as having some of the best fans in football.

"They're also our local club and we're extremely proud that they're in the Premier League. We're excited to be their shirt sponsor and to be supporting them as the new season starts."

Pompey chief executive officer Peter Storrie said: "We're delighted to welcome Jobsite as our new main club sponsor. This represents the biggest sponsorship deal in the club's history.

"We have been impressed by Jobsite's attitude and approach to supporting the club and believe that they will be a great partner.

"Jobsite are joining at an exciting time for the club and we look forward to building a close working relationship with them."

Pompey commercial director Paul Bell said: "From the initial conversation with Jobsite it was clear that they were serious about extending their brand awareness campaign into new ground to reach more consumers.

"Becoming the main sponsor at Portsmouth Football Club will help them to reach significant audiences both in the UK and worldwide.

"Innovative marketing activity has seen Jobsite become a leader within the recruitment sector and we are excited about working with them over the next three seasons to help deliver their brand and business objectives.

"We are a progressive football club and strive to work with like-minded, forward-thinking brands. With Jobsite we have found a fantastic partner."

The deal confirms the commitment of the Havant-based company to becoming the UK's best-known online recruitment brand and demonstrates the importance they place on finding new and different ways to reach consumers.

It marks the start of a new phase of brand activity for Jobsite, building on the huge success of their TV advertising campaign starring Max Beesley last year - the biggest ever by a UK job board.

Jobsite was launched as the UK's first commercial multi-sector online recruitment site in 1995 and has continued to go from strength to strength to become one of the UK's leading job boards, posting thousands of new jobs every day.

Nearly a million CVs are currently posted on the site for employers to search.

The new kit featuring the Jobsite logo will be worn for the first time by Pompey for their friendly at Basingstoke on Saturday.

Launch dates for the new replica kit will be announced in due course.

The Jobsite Stand? Unlucky guys. Like you say it will still be the Fratton end for you - just like 'The Emirates' will always be Ashburton Grove to us Gooners.

The word ****e springs to mind. 'This represents the biggest sponsorship deal in the club's history'. Either they have some serious money or we are undervalueing ourselves. May be they find us some decent players whilst they are at it!!!

Bit naff to be fair, but hey ho, if they want to pay the money I'd have pretty much anything on there. Who the heck were OKI? But we soon got used to that. It isn't anything offensive or ridiculous, so to be fair I'll take it.

Well after the initial weeks of fans using their brains to come up with the word '*****e' instead of site and my guess is 'dog' instead of job - so yeah ha ha it could sound like dog *****e on the front of the shirt I think it will be fine. Not sure how a long logo will work with the away strip and those 2 stripes mind. We could loose the 'e' and have a different sponsor.

Actually thought this was a wind up, I'm laughing my socks off here. Just imagine when Liverpool come down, they will all be chanting 'Giz us a Job' OMG this is going to do for shirt sales what Gordon brown has done for the Labour party. On the other hand the quote did say this was the biggest sponsorship deal Pompey have ever had and all I can say ism we need the money, but i sure as hell wont buy a shirt with that sponsor on it, I'm not going to let my brother take the ***** out of me, He's a Liverpool fan.

Big news Pompey bought Nikola Kalinic from Hajduk for 7.5 million euros. It's not confirmed yet, but there are reports that Pompey will come for him with private jet in next few days. He is young only 21 and he is good but can he play in EPL ? link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_EzYIoD2Hw

Not as bad as Getafe's Burger King sponsor. We must thank our lucky stars it wasn't McDonalds, with Ronald McDonald underneath ala Getafe's Burger King.

Certainly won't buy a shirt with such a naff sponsor's name. I remember WBA being sponsored by their local health service with the no smoking logo. Bring back South Coast Fiat, all is forgiven!!!

Didn't Crystal Palace once have 'mates condoms' on their shirts - its not as embarrassing as that - but we are going to be in for a lot of stick though aren't we! Haven't decided yet if its enough to put me off buying a shirt - it also depends if I like the third black kits or not I guess. And I still say the shade of blue is too pale.

Agree about the blue being too pale Tracy and I won't now buy the new away shirt (Unless I can get one without the sponsor on it) But although Sneaky thought of DogSh1te .. I quite like the thought of being a season ticket holder in thr GobSh1te stand !

Id rather buy the new shirt without the sponsor logo or otherwise just buy the casual merchandise. I cant wait to hear about the poor shirt sales though. That'll be funny and maybe teach SAF a lesson about sponsors. Im glad we're back to the old blue, white and red. But i heard a rumour the goalie top is pink??? If thats true then unlucky Jamo!

Nikola Kalinic, Pompey, buy him at all costs! this boys is better than Rooney and worth 10 times the proposed fee of 6M Euros. still only 21 and stats are astounding, 62games 36goals 17assists. worry is work permit, only just broke into Croatia team and has 3 caps. Is Croatia a Euro Country? if so Go Pompey Go, damn this is exciting news if we get this boy.

danstn: yeah we're back to blue, white and red for the home kit, away kit is white with two navy stripes on left side, third kit is black with thin blue hoops. One goalie kit is green, the other is pink.

Chix, thanks for making me laugh with the gobsh... thing. Some of the casual stuff is not too bad . . Danstn, pompey4me had a signed pink goalie shirt which he raffled the other weekend, saying Jamo wanted it, but at H&W the other night, the goalie's shirts were green. Unless Asmir and Ashdown are wearing green and Jamo's wearing pink? Is this sponsorship SO bad? Not sure I've got a problem with it myself. Jobsite are actually quite good, most people I know are registered with them.

Not sure what the big deal about it is, we wore shirts with big red love hearts on for 3 years, this is quite tame compared to that. As for the Jobsite End looking like the Gob****e End, remember that Fratton End is not too far away from Fartton End.

it is setting us up for a big fall, the media are going to have a field day and hart's neck will be on the line with the media being ruthless with him if things go wrong - i suggest we ignore the ********s!

as for the jobsite sponsorship itself, at least they have put their money in their pocket to do this and we now have a sponsor!
as for the 'shirt' in the image ive seen better, seen worse, im probably way, way off but it is 'possible' that is just a training top, as they will sponsor all training gear too...
