Club places on record thanks for Invest In Africa's support.
Sunderland AFC has today thanked Invest in Africa for its support, as the club gets set to announce a new principal partner.
SAFC announced an initial partnership with Invest in Africa in January 2012, kicking off the ground-breaking not-for-profit initiative which promotes Africa as a leading business destination and actively challenges misconceptions about investing on the continent. The partnership developed further when Invest in Africa became the club’s principal partner and shirt sponsor for the 2012-13 season.
The club and Invest in Africa will continue to work together in the future, further cementing the positive relationship that has developed between the two parties.
Sunderland AFC’s chief executive, Margaret Byrne, said: “We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Invest in Africa for their support over the last 18 months.
"The partnership between Invest in Africa and Sunderland AFC really helped to kick-start the club’s work on the African continent, which is now going from strength to strength."
