Aberdeen Football Club is delighted to announce that the Club has entered into a strategic partnership with Norwegian energy firm Statoil to further enhance the work being undertaken at the Club across its Youth Development programmes.

 

Statoil is to be the exclusive 'Talent Partner' of Aberdeen Football Club with the emphasis specifically on the future development of elite youth players through the AFC Junior and Youth Academy.

 

Gunnar Breivik, managing director Statoil Production U.K. Limited said, "We are pleased to enter this new partnership with Aberdeen Football Club as we recognise the importance of developing and inspiring the next generation of home-grown talent. The Club has ambitious plans for the AFC Youth Academy and Statoil is proud to play a supporting role as Talent Partner."

 

Commenting on the partnership, Vice Chairman George Yule added "This Club is totally focussed on delivering quality across every area of our business, and our partnership with Statoil will significantly enhance our ability to develop elite junior and youth players (and their coaches) via a range of technical and fitness programmes aimed at providing opportunities for talented young football players from the Aberdeen area and the NE of Scotland to follow in the footsteps of Russell Anderson, Ryan Jack, Andrew Considine and many others who've come through the AFC Academy into the 1st team.

 

"AFC is delighted to have Statoil as one of our key partners at the Club and we look forward to working closely with them in the future in pursuit of our mutual objectives. This long term partnership with a global energy giant is a vote of confidence in our vision of the future both for Scottish football at grass roots level and especially for Aberdeen Football Club and its academy staff, coaches and players"

 

Statoil is an international energy company with operations in 36 countries. Statoil's Mariner project is the largest new offshore development in the UK in more than a decade and the field is expected to produce for at least 30 years. Statoil Aberdeen currently employs around 120 people and plans to recruit additional staff in 2015. The company recently saw construction start on its new UK North Sea headquarters at the Prime Four business park at Kingswells.

 

The Statoil Heroes of Tomorrow sponsorship concept supports talented young people in sport, culture and education to help them achieve their ambitions.

 

Could lead to them sponsoring the new training facilities perhaps?

This is excellent news.  Our club seems to be acting more and more professionally with every major news piece.  Not only that, but they seem to be taking on credible sponsors.  I know Shell sponsored us before, I assume they will be replaced with Statoil?

 

Anyway, great news for our youth set up and great credit to all involved!  :thumbsup:

I think the Shell sponsorship ended years ago, agree that the club seems to be running far more professionally these days, it's great to keep getting good news out of the blue.
