Scottish football club Celtic has signed a main shirt deal for its women’s team with IT solutions company Indigo Unified Communications.
The one-year deal will see the Glasgow-based company emblazon the club’s shirt front ahead of next week’s women’s season-opener in the Scottish Building Society Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL).
“Celtic Women’s team are at the forefront in helping to develop the women’s game at all levels and age groups in Scotland,” said Hugh Stewart, non-executive chairman of Indigo Unified Communications.
“Indigo Unified Communications is a leading innovator in business communication solutions and are delighted to sponsor Celtic Women’s team in the coming season.”
Celtic’s women’s team moved to full-time training in 2018, becoming the first ever professional women’s football team in Scotland.
The publicity shot for the new sponsorship, showing Celtic men’s new signing Oliver Burke holding up the sponsor’s shirt, flanked by women’s team players Kelly Clark and Cheryl McCulloch, was criticised on social media.
