UCML Stand at Wrexham Football Club
(Posted on 28/04/14)
Part of the worldâ€™s oldest international football stadium, home to Wrexham Football Club, will be rebranded as the Utilities Connections Management Ltd stand for the 2014-15 football season.
Utilities Connections Management Ltd (UCML), a utilities consultancy business based at Wrexham Industrial Estate, was the lucky winner of a competition launched by Racecourse Stadium owners GlyndÅµr University.
Naming rights for the new football season, which begins in August 2014, were offered as part of a competition to support the Universityâ€™s fundraising arm, GlyndÅµr Giving.
The Yale section of the stadium will be rebranded with Utilities Connections Management signage over the summer.
UCML managing director Arwel Lloyd said: â€œA few of our staff are Wrexham FC season ticket holders and we wanted to do more to support the local community so the opportunity to have a named stand at the stadium was ideal.
â€œThis also builds on our already strong relationship with GlyndÅµr University â€“ we were involved with work at the Wrexham Village student accommodation and most of our staff have some connection to the university as current students or graduates.â€
Anna-Marie Brown, sports manager at GlyndÅµr University, said: â€œWe are delighted that UCML will have a presence at the stadium throughout next season.
â€œThey are a Wrexham company and we are Wrexhamâ€™s university so we hope the link-up will be mutually beneficialâ€
