Bostik named new Isthmian sponsors

The Isthmian League has been rebranded as the Bostik League in a two-year deal.

After twenty years as the Ryman League, the divisions will now be known as the Bostik Premier Division, the Bostik North Division and the Bostik South Division.

Bostik, a world leader in adhesives and sealants, has a long-standing relationship with grassroots football. This includes the sponsorship of The Northern Premier League and Southern Football League under its well-known EVO-STIK brand.

Dale Poulton, Commercial Director of Bostik UK, said: “We’ve worked hard to get this deal in place. We have a proven relationship with this tier of football and believe it’s the ideal platform to generate awareness for our brands. By working closely with the league, we’re confident the new deal will help us achieve great things for the Bostik brand.”

Nick Robinson, Chairman of the newly branded Bostik League, said: “The Isthmian Football League, now entering its 113th season, has 72 clubs that rely heavily on the financial support that sponsorship generates, and teaming up is certainly welcome news for everyone involved. We are delighted to be linked with such a well-known brand.”

The Bostik South Division will kick-off on Saturday 12 August, with fixture lists expected in mid-July.
