Ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent will be the main sponsor of Harrogate Town in its first season as a Football League team.

EnviroVent employs more than 240 people at its manufacturing plant, training centre and head office on Hornbeam Business Park in the North Yorkshire town. The company has sponsored a stand at the club for the past seven seasons and the extension to its sponsorship will see Harrogate Town playing at the EnviroVent Stadium.

EnviroVent’s Managing Director Andy Makin said: “It was wonderful to see Harrogate Town AFC win the National League play-off final at Wembley and this has given the town a huge lift. We are delighted to extend our sponsorship of the club and obtain the naming rights.

"2020 has proven a very challenging year for many. We see our extended sponsorship as a way of highlighting the longer-term optimism we believe and feel for our business, our club and our town once the current challenges we have all experienced have faded. The club is an important pillar of the local community and it’s an honour to be able to extend our part in its journey at this incredible time.”

Since winning a place in the EFL, Harrogate Town AFC is replacing the club’s artificial pitch with grass, in keeping with League regulations.  In addition, a new Main Stand was recently constructed with close to 1,000 seats added, boosting the stadium capacity to 5,000.

Gary Plant, Managing Director at Harrogate Town AFC, said: “We would like to thank EnviroVent for their continued support and look forward to working to make them proud!”
