We are incredibly pleased that Defected Records have kept up our tradition of the front of shirt sponsor being a pre-existing sponsor as they take their place on the front of our new kit for the 2022 23 season for all Dulwich Hamlet FC teams.
It is a trend that demonstrates how committed we are to working with all of our sponsors and developing those relationships and demonstrating the growing value to the club, to fans and to all companies and organisations that become involved at Champion Hill.
Wez Saunders, the Managing Director of Defected Records explains the journey so far and their hopes for this relationship going forward. “Defected are pleased to once again be sponsoring Dulwich Hamlet FC, this time with an even stronger presence on the front of both the men’s and women’s kits for their forthcoming season. More than just a record label, our partnership with Dulwich Hamlet is a natural fit for us, with the intrinsic link between music and sport being such a vital part of our everyday culture. With DJ and long-time friend of the label, Lucy Monkman (Monki) forming part of the women’s team, the partnership is a true statement of our ongoing mission to support incredible talent and champion the next generation of football stars. Having sponsored the back of the women’s kit since 2019, followed by the men’s in 2020, we look forward to continuing the sponsorship and contributing to the club’s ongoing progression and incredible work within the community.”
Ben Clasper, Chairman of Dulwich Hamlet FC couldn’t be happier with the news “Every year we receive multiple requests for the front of shirt and we have always been loyal to existing sponsors and so it was important for us to see the relationship with Defected would continue. We have a lot of new sponsors coming on board in other areas for the coming season and it is great to know that the vast majority will be starting long term relationships as Defected have thanks in no small part to the efforts of Clare Keeble, our Commercial Manager. Having seen the new kit designs it’s also clear this is a great combination visually and one we look forward to seeing throughout East Dulwich and beyond.”
Fans will get their first opportunity to see the new kit this week as the men’s team return to action and we are looking forward to seeing Defected Records front and centre with the new design.
