Halifax Panthers are delighted to announce that for the upcoming 2022 Season, the club will be supported by not one but two MAIN CLUB PARTNERS. This exciting development means that ECLIPSE ENERGY will continue their support of the club for a third year and will be joined for 2022 by DELIVEREE, with ECLIPSE appearing on the front of the home shirt and DELIVEREE on the front of the away shirt.
Mark Bannister, M.D. of Eclipse Energy and Gareth Somers M.D. of DELIVEREE have worked together in the past and both share a common passion for The Panthers,
wanting to help the club continue to move forward and achieve the maximum in terms of stability and success. Eclipse has over the past 2 years helped the club both on and off the field, Mark’s commitment and enthusiasm have played a significant part in our recent success. Gareth has already impacted on the club in a number of ways, significantly, by setting up and leading our new Media team, with the results already there for all to see.
Panthers Commercial Director Steve Lambert said, “To have 2 of Calderdale’s most successful and fastest growing companies as Partners is exciting for us all at the club. Both Mark and Gareth are successful businessmen, but also enthusiastic and committed fans who want to be part of our exciting Panther journey. Their commitment added to the wonderful response from our other Commercial Partners sets the platform for the club to move forward again next season.”
ECLIPSE ENERGY work across West Yorkshire installing energy efficient measures in homes, both domestically and as part of large government contracts. In recent months they have emerged as one of the North of England’s leading businesses in the rapidly expanding energy efficient home improvement sector, where homeowners seek to upgrade their existing properties through measures such as new heating systems, insulation, and ventilation.
In Calderdale, they currently work in partnership with the Council and the governments Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) installing funded room in roof insulation, as well as new, energy efficient boilers.
DELIVEREE are an ever growing business, helping you get your favourite local restaurants delivered straight to your home across the nation. They only work
with high quality local restaurants, no national chains. They charge less commission, pay drivers more, and spend their money in the communities they work in supporting local charities and sports teams. Alongside their commercial partnership with Halifax Panthers, they also sponsor Siddal ARLFC, Boothtown Terriers ARLFC, Old Crossleyans RUFC and Andys Man Club.
Gareth Somers, M.D. of DELIVEREE, commented: “When Steve approached me with the opportunity to feature as main shirt sponsor for the 2022 season, it was a no brainer for our team at Deliveree. The club as a whole is certainly going in the right direction, and results on the field are supported by really positive work behind the scenes and in the local community. Looking ahead, it’s clear the foundations for even bigger success next year have been laid, and we’re happy to support the club in any way we can.”
“On a personal note and being a Panthers fan, it has always been a lifelong ambition of mine to work alongside the club one day. It’s great that Deliveree and myself are now able to do this, something made even more exciting as 2021 looks set to be one of the most exciting seasons for the club in a number of years. Hopefully, the team can end this year strongly and we look forward to lending our support in 2022 and beyond.”
We’re delighted to welcome both firms on board and look forward to a prosperous and healthy working relationship in 2022 and beyond.
