Aberdeen land six-figure drone sponsorship deal

Top-flight Scottish soccer side Aberdeen have agreed a new partnership with Texo Drone Survey and Inspection.

The provider of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technologies for the global energy sector will be listed as the Scottish Premiership outfit’s official young player talent partner for the duration of the 2017/18 season, in a deal which will predominantly benefit the club’s youth academy.

The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed, but Scottish tabloid newspaper the Daily Record reports that the company is committing a six-figure sum.

“We’re delighted to welcome Texo Drone to the Aberdeen Football Club family,” said George Yule, vice chairman of Aberdeen. “A dynamic and market-leading company, they complement our drive and desire to do the best, both on the field and commercially.

“There is such a hot bed of talent within the youth academy, and thanks to the support of Texo Drone, it will enable us to support and develop our players of the future.”

John Wood, chief operating officer for Texo Drone Survey and Inspection, added: “I am extremely proud of our close relationship with Aberdeen FC and this is reflected by becoming the first commercial entity in their history to have external branding at Pittodrie. Their vision to continue to nurture talent and embrace opportunity and change is aligned to ours, which is why we are thrilled to be supporting them.”

Aberdeen are second in the Scottish Premiership, two points behind leaders Celtic. They play their next league fixture away to Motherwell on 24th September.
