Brownings the Bakers have announced a partnership with KillieFC.com which will see them as the main sponsor for the online portal which incorporates the The Kilmarnock Supporters' Society (Killie Trust), The Kilmarnock Football Club Supporters' Association, FC Kilmarnock Ladies, Young Kilmarnock and the website and forums itself.
Brownings were a major sponsor and supplier of Kilmarnock Football Club until April 2016 when the two businesses parted ways.
John Gall, Managing Director of Brownings the Bakers said: "As a lifelong Killie fan and local businessman I have always relished the fact that I have been able to contribute to the club. Times have changed and we are no longer directly involved with the club, but now we have the opportunity to support Kilmarnock and the supporters in another way. When we were asked to sponsor the KillieFC.com website it was a very easy decision to make".
The partnership kicks off from today and will see Browning’s branding across KillieFC.com.
Jim Thomson, Killie Trust Chairman said: "The Killie Trust are delighted that Browning's the Bakers, such a prestigious local family company, have agreed to sponsor the KillieFC.com community for the foreseeable future. This financial security will allow the online portal to expand its vision to be the best football supporter’s website in the country and we're proud to work in partnership with Brownings towards this goal."
James Morrison, KFCSA Chairman added: "The website has come on leaps and bounds since all the fans organisations joined together online. It is great to see an award-winning business like Brownings financially supporting a community project such as this."
