Southampton company aap3 to take over as Saints sponsors

Daily Echo: aap3's logo aap3's logo

SOUTHAMPTON business and IT solutions company aap3 have signed a three-year deal to become Saints' main sponsor.

The organisation's logo will appear on the club's new home and away kits from next season.

aap3 have their headquarters in Chilworth, but also have offices in London, California, France, Germany and Italy.

Rod Jackson, the president and CEO of aap3, explained the reasons behind his company's decision to sponsor Saints.

"Southampton Football Club is ambitious, well run and socially aware of its responsibilities as a football club and a corner stone of the community," he said.

"Ultimately, we strongly believe in the vision of where this club is heading, and felt that being involved with such a project was too good an opportunity to miss out on."

Saints chairman Nicola Cortese said: "Any sponsorship deal needs to represent good value to the club, but of equal importance are the principles of the company, which is why it gives me great pleasure to have secured this deal with aap3.

"Like us, they are an upwardly mobile company who strongly believe in their business ethics. They are a very successful global company with strong local roots, and a conscious understanding of the role they have to play in the local community.

"I am convinced that aap3 are that company and their commitment to the Club over the next three years will, I am sure, coincide with an exciting period for both of us."

It will be interesting to find out what the deal is worth, as I had expected a large financial institution or a multi-national household name. Let's hope it works out well for both Saints and aap3.

But does the logo, being red, mean we won't be wearing red & white stripes next season?
The red letters will not be seen if they are on a red stripe, so unless they put a white backing strip over the stripes, we may have another stripe free 3 years to come.

I think people are missing the main point of this sponsorship. NC is clearly showing that he is supporting local business. He probably could have got more to have FlyBe back on the shirts, or even some major betting company, but he has shown a few times now how keen he is to involve the community in the football club. A very wise business move

I would like to see the kit remain the same to be honest, shows the history of the club and it is unique, and itwould look good with that logo on it. Keep the sash I say! Even though I can't see that happening.

Just another note, my friend noticed that the red sash starts from the opposite shoulder it did previously, would have thought it would be the same.

Nicola said Flybe used to get more free tickets than they put into the club in sponsorship. That unfortunately seems to be at the heart of ill feeling as he cut off the freebies and started running the club as a money making entity.

Congratulations Nicola and AAP3 I'm sure every fan hopes this will be a the start of a super new era in the rise of SFC.

Hopefully more incentive to the lads to get the job done and get us up this season. COYR... all good innit!

I haven't heard of them which means nothing, because I know zilch about IT. They probably want to raise their profile in the public eye. Suspect deal has add-ons related to promotions, as exposure obviously different in Lreague 1 than in Premiership. In financial matters, fully trust NC. Does this mean we'll have wide stripes to accommodate logo or a white background bar for it. I think it would lok lovely on one shoulder of a sah kit, but (sigh) that ain't going to happen.

I'm sure that the kit was kept logo free this season because NC didn't want to tie himself into a deal when he secretly hoped we'd get promotion and, therefore, a better deal for next season. We're now in an in-between position where he can't guarantee that to any would-be sponsor.
As for an ITK bloke in a pub, peanuts are relative. I doubt any company would go round saying they'd paid too much. I suspect it's a decent deal all round.

Pub conversations are never to be trusted. Anybody who would actually be in the know wouldn't be blabbing in a pub.

Flybe were not treated badly, they were dealing with a bust club! The new club and owners have behaved impeccably.

Whatever deal Nicola has brokered its good enough for three years. We are a League One club and big name sponsors do not form a long queue outside such clubs. If we get promoted and utlimately end up in the Premiership then our shirts will be prime advertising space .. this would be in around three years time if the grand plan works out. So that makes perfect sense doesn't it.


Actually I'm far more curious about how the logo fits on a striped shirt. We shall see when the new shirts are announced. I doubt we will keep the sash but then again what would I know, I dont drink in the King Alfred.

All rather negative as usual, the bit about "couldn't care less about the people who work for them" sounds a bit bitter and verging on libel, hope you can qualify it with proof. Also are there some people working for the conpany that don't care for the company as long as they pay their wages, it takes two to tango. There are very few firms in the present financial climate that are not having to make economies and cuts, it is a sad sign of the times. when our glorious Government have got us back on track the good times will roll again.

About the kit, I hope the new home kit has the really wide stripes a-la the 1980-1985 one, fitting the logo in the middle of one of them. Failing that, just like Flybe and Friend's Provident did most of the time, put it in a little box.
I would prefer narrower stripes like the 1997 - 1998 Sanderosn/Pony style with a decent collar. The new logo would have to be on a white patch to make it stand out. The point of the logo is that if Saints do well then more people will see it, so lets hope we get the success that we crave.

From my recollection if they go pop - all results from the season become null and void. As we lost at home to them on the opening day it means nothing - but if any of the teams around us cllected points they would be deducted!
Can't be bothered to check - is anyone else going to believe they are going pop?

That is old news about Flybe not renewing their deal. Saints then had the opportunity to look then for another deal but chose to keep the 125 year sponsor free! What's wrong wtih that? It was the clubs choice and a very good one...

As for this new sponsorship deal we have Liebher's billions still behind us so we are not totally reliant on what we make from this deal as opposed to Brighton without American Express they would probably not be able to keep the lights on in their new stadium.

This deal is all about a local based company and backs up all the work Saints are doing with the Foundation and work in the community...I don't question and business deal that Nicola handles because he has the club going in the right direction...we will have to deal with the envious eyes of other supporters at some stage...I am proud to be a Saints supporter with the way the club is going!

I run a business with a local head office and I haven't heard of them but some of my colleagues have.

Like us they are a business to business supplier so like our sponsorship of NA the benefits are more limited than those of a business promoting directly to the public at large like Draper Tools, Flybe, Sandersons, Coca Cola etc. Also the benefits to them will be very regionalised unlike the names already mentioned who retail their products all over the country and in some cases the world. I am surprised by this deal and doubt it is worth very much to be honest. Wish I'd realised the club were prepared to go this small, would have put a bid in myself.

It's not a consumer brand but then neither are things like AIG, AON or Standard Charter or things like that. It's a bit of a status symbol to have a shirt sponsor that no one has previously heard of.

TJ- you must be commercialism over tradition everytime. Ever thought that had this year's shirt been Red and White Stripes with No Logo it would have outsold any previous or even this year's shirt?

That's because the original sash was just that, a loose sash that was worn off either shoulder depending which way you dress- not you Seagulls! (Q A S N) Blue Peter fans will know that you can make your own original 1885 kit with some basic ingredients- and cut a dash in a sash.
If we do change the orientation of the sash, we could be sponsored by a well-known Jamaican Beer- and their name would only be a means to explain to skates what it was on the shirt.

I doubt it'll happen, and if it does it won't be before the end of the season. There have been half a dozen clubs in serious financial strife in the last couple of seasons and something always comes along at the 11th hour to save them.

I also like the stripe. It looks cool.
Brighton & Bompey would drop 6 points each.
Hudders, Posh & Dons would lose 3 each.
Doubt if it would happen as those nice boys from Brighton, that keep coming on here to play, would probably have a whip round to save Argyle, and their own season, from going pop.
It would need something like that to give your over inflated big ego lot a chance... and you would more than likely bottle still it

Also are there some people working for the conpany that don't care for the company as long as they pay their wages, it takes two to tango. There are very few firms in the present financial climate that are not having to make economies and cuts, it is a sad sign of the times. when our glorious Government have got us back on track the good times will roll again.

Prove it??? No problem or you can ask any of the hoards of people who have left in the last year. The place is a revolving door. It does take two to tango but takes one to let go....

All the top brass care about is jetting off to Vegas every 6 months and bleeding the company dry and blaming the staff and not looking at the upper managers and execs who should ultimately be putting themselves in the firing line when it goes wrong and not blaming the middle or lower layers, YOU are the leaders of the business are you not. Take some responsibility!!. Am i bitter? Yep....i wasted a year in that place and its a terrible, terrible place to work. all about people?????not on your life mate
