Fidelis is delighted to announce that it will partner with Stalybridge Celtic as the main sponsor of the club for the 2023/2024 season!
Celtic is a non-league football club based, as the name might suggest, in Stalybridge, which is a suburb of Manchester, England. They currently reside in the Northern Premier League Division One but, until recently, played in the upper reaches of the non-league pyramid. Their home is Bower Fold and they play in traditional blue and white kits. Keep an eye out for them soon!
Although we're based in the US, Rob Hurlston (Co-Owner of Fidelis along with Bill Webster) originally grew up right by the stadium and followed the team home and away for over 15 years before moving to the US in 2012.
Fidelis Co-Owner Rob Hurlston said: “Fidelis is incredibly proud to become the main sponsor of Stalybridge Celtic for the 2023/2024 season.
“As a devout follower of the club since I was a kid, the opportunity to help out and gain some exposure for Fidelis was a no brainer.
"I brought up the idea of becoming the main sponsor of an English 'soccer' team to Bill on the golf course and I think maybe the idea of becoming a real life Ted Lasso enticed him?
“We'll probably be the only international sponsors of a team at this level. And we’ll all be donning our Celtic shirts in the office and following the team this season!
“I was right behind that Stuart Locke penalty at Droylsden and I am so pumped to see the good times back at the Bridge!”
Afshin Mirtorabi and Andy Seddon, commercial directors at Stalybridge Celtic said: “We’re both delighted that Fidelis have decided to partner with the club and become our shirt sponsor for the 2023/24 season.
“From our very first conversations, Rob’s enthusiasm and excitement for all things Celtic was very clear. Despite Rob living in the US for the last few years, he has continued to follow the fortunes of Celtic. The timing proved to be perfect as Rob’s business has continued to successfully grow which has coincided with the new ownership and new era beginning at Celtic.
“We look forward to welcoming Rob to Bower Fold at the earliest opportunity!”
