Leeds United director Adam Pearson has been quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post predicting an exciting future for the club, as they chase various commercial partnerships.
Leeds announced a long term kit deal with Kappa last week and Pearson is confident the club are making positive strides as they look to overcome the adversity, which has surrounded the recent past.
“We have a whole host of them (partners). Obviously, Kappa is our key partner and with the club sponsor, they are the new main partners we have to get right for the next five years,” he said.
“There are some interesting deals coming to the table, for sure.”
“We have got a lot to do on the commercial side and a lot of partnerships to put in place. But to be fair, they are starting to appear on the table.”
Why do Leeds need so many partners?
There are numerous benefits if Pearson, and other officials at Leeds, can develop long term and sustainable relationships with partners of the club.
Extra revenue through sponsorship opportunities is important and part of that can go back into the first team and the infrastructure of the club.
It’s also important because it increases the exposure of the club, which is significant as the team look to become a Premier League side in the near future.
Things are looking bright
There’s plenty for Leeds as a club and the supporters to be positive about looking forward over the next couple of seasons.
The signings Uwe Rosler has made are sensible, the key youngsters have all been tied down to the club, Neil Redfearn is staying with the academy and partnerships are going well away from the pitch.
If the team can start the season well under Rosler, Leeds have a great chance to build some momentum.
