PURE Legal: new home shirt sponsor Date: 02/07/2015

Huddersfield Town is delighted to confirm that PURE Legal Limited is the Club’s new main home shirt sponsor for the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship season.

Located in Prescot, Merseyside, PURE Legal Limited is a new company launched in April 2015 by Huddersfield Town fan Phil Hodgkinson.

PURE Legal is a cutting-edge legal services business, which provides a huge array of services to the legal industry as a whole, both directly and through its many business partners and affiliates. The initial focus will be on bill drafting, costs negotiation and litigation, however in the coming months PURE Legal will offer a full suite of Legal Services to the general public and businesses alike.

Phil, who was a member of the ‘Young Terriers’ junior supporters group in his younger years, is pictured above at the John Smith’s Stadium alongside Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis and Senior Commercial Manager Tracy Nelson celebrating the new partnership.

Alongside the PURE Legal name appearing on the front of Town’s home shirts, PURE Legal Limited will also have a full page advert in the Club’s Match Day Magazine, ‘Give Us An H’; advertising on the John Smith’s Stadium Big Screen on Huddersfield Town match days, sponsorship of the weekly eNewsletter ‘Talk of the Town’ and on pitch side boards.

PURE Legal Limited takes over from Rekorderlig, which had previously been Town’s main club sponsor for three years, and becomes the latest name to grace the front of the home shirt since Central Mirfield became the first in 1982.

Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:

“Phil is a diehard Huddersfield Town fan, well known to everyone at the Club through his box holder status over many seasons.

“During negotiations over the main home shirt sponsorship, I had the opportunity to look at his memorabilia. He’s got all the shirts – starting with the Vileda away kit from the 1993/94 campaign – and it’s a superb story that his business is the next to take pride of place across the Club’s famous blue and white stripes.

“The main shirt sponsorship will give PURE Legal Limited superb brand awareness and profile as it looks to build its client base following the launch of the company three months ago.

“The entire Commercial team at Huddersfield Town is excited about this new sponsorship and to work with Phil even more closely over the coming months and years.”

PURE Legal CEO Phil Hodgkinson commented:

“Having supported Huddersfield Town for the last 35 years, the opportunity to have the name of my new business across the blue and white stripes was one I could simply not pass up.

“PURE Legal intends to become a household name over the next three years, providing a full array of legal services across the UK direct to consumers and businesses.

“Our aim is to remove the commercial focus from law and provide high quality products at affordable prices, putting the customer first once again.

“We will be launching a number of unique initiatives specifically for Huddersfield Town fans and partners over the coming season, at specially discounted rates.

“I am incredibly proud to be launching my new business in partnership with Huddersfield Town, a club with a very proud history and tradition, and look forward to growing our brand with the help of the Club and its fan-base over the coming years.”
