mobile network Three was the Official Away Fans sponsor of Plymouth Argyle for the match against Hartlepool at the weekend – near 800 mile round trip. A unique footballing sponsorship was aimed at rewarding loyal support and helping Argyle fans stay connected to the club throughout their journey.
As part of the sponsorship, Plymouth Argyle crowd sourced its pre-match team talk. Fans contributed their words of dressing room inspiration on Twitter, which were complied and delivered to the team before the Hartlepool match.
Lianne Norry, director of brand and communications for Three commented:
No matter which team you support, the one thing all football fans have in common is their love for their club. That’s why we’re delighted to sponsor PAFC’s away game so we can connect the club with its fans and keep them close together even though they are traveling 774 miles for this game. We’ve got a great network across the country and I’m excited to see how players and fans alike use it to their advantage.
Three connects away supporters but also the team to allow fans to get a greater insight into player’s preparation ahead of the game. By using Three’s network, players and team staff will be able to document every step of the 387-mile one-way journey to Hartlepool for the League 2 game.
