JOBSITE.CO.UK SIGN SHIRT DEAL

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.
