NEC Nijmegen energised by new shirt sponsor

Dutch energy provider EnergieFlex has agreed a deal to become the new main sponsor of the country’s Eredivisie football club NEC Nijmegen.

EnergieFlex has signed a two-year deal, which will cover the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

The company’s branding will feature on the front of NEC’s playing jerseys as part of the deal.

General director of EnergieFlex Siva Kandiah said: “Talks were pleasant and constructive, and we were immediately convinced of the clear vision of NEC – business development combined with a creative enterprise. In addition, the city of Nijmegen is for us an ideal base for realising our national aspirations.”

NEC finished the 2015-16 Eredivisie season in 10th place.
