Sports Signage at Macclesfield Town FC

Leek United Building Society Sponsor Boards

After committing themselves to sponsor Macclesfield Town FC for the forthcoming season of football in the Vanarama National Conference league, Leek United Building Society were in need of Sponsorship Boards and an installation team to fit them perfectly.


Site Survey

First of all, we set up a meeting with Leek United Building Society to discuss where the boards needed to be placed. This also involved working closely with Macclesfield Town FC. We also spoke about the type of boards that would be needed to ensure that the boards last for the correct amount of time.

Sponsorship Board Materials

The sponsorship boards need to last for at least one season and is why we recommended having their design at the top of the stand printed onto dibond boards. Dibond  is made up of two 0.3mm sheets of aluminium, ‘sandwiching’ a PVC centre. Dibond can last up to 7 years which means we won’t have to supply more if the sponsorship deal was to last for many seasons. This then saves the end user money as new boards don’t need to be printed and installed. The graphics are printed on our UV press to ensure that they don’t fade, which needs to be the case especially for signs that are high up and difficult to see. The boards are also coated in anti-graffiti laminate gloss. This protects and enhances the graphics and allows the boards to be cleaning with strong detergent if needed.

The sponsor boards closer to the pitch were printed onto Foamex boards. Foamex boards are lightweight, robust and weatherproof, making them easy to install which saves time for our installation team and money for the end user. These boards don’t last quite as long as Dibond boards, however, many sponsors tend to change them after a season or two.


Installation Team

As always, we sent members of our experienced installation team to install the sponsorship boards at Macclesfield Town FC. We have to correct safety certification and equipment to work at heights so Leek United Building Society didn’t need to hire another company to install the boards at the top of the stand, again saving them money.
