Jobsite are thrilled to announce that they have signed as the main club sponsor of Portsmouth Football Club today. It marks the start of a new phase of brand activity for Jobsite, building on the huge success of their TV campaign during the last year.
From the start of the new season in August, the Jobsite logo will take pride of place on the shirts of the Portsmouth players, at multiple points both inside and outside of the stadium, across the Portsmouth FC website, on match day programmes/tickets, on official club merchandise and across the interview backdrop which features on Sky and BBC football coverage.
