We are delighted to announce that the Club has secured a significant sponsorship deal, which sees Holker Street become the SO Legal Stadium.
Established in 2016, SO Legal is a law firm providing specialist legal services, including commercial property, corporate law, litigation and dispute resolution, private client, and residential property conveyancing.
The company has offices in London, Brighton, Eastbourne, Hastings and Uckfield, serving a nationwide client base of SMEs, retail and restaurant chains, property agents, developers, and private individuals.
After six years of impressive growth in the South East, the firm is set to open its first office in the North West, with an Ulverston branch in August 2022. This new base will serve clients across the Furness Peninsula, the Lake District, and the surrounding area.
"We are delighted to welcome Hamed and the team at SO Legal to the Barrow AFC family,” commented Bluebirds chairman, Paul Hornby.
“The partnership is an extremely exciting one where we can mutually benefit each other and the supporters with collaborations and offers which we'll be revealing shortly.
“SO Legal are looking forward to getting to know the Barrow community and I genuinely believe we've found a long term partner who can add significant value to our town and Club.
“As such, this is so much more than just a sponsorship deal for the Club. The owners of SO Legal are football people and have a genuine knowledge of the game and passion for sport.”
SO Legal’s co-founder and managing director Hamed Ovaisi said the deal is great for the law firm: "We're delighted to become part of the Barrow AFC family.
“Our new Ulverston office launches next month, and we are excited about building a long-term partnership with the Club, the supporters and the local community.
"I watched Barrow a few times last season, having invested in the local area and I absolutely loved the atmosphere and fans.
“When we discovered the opportunity to become the main stadium sponsor was available, we just had to be a part of it. We're looking forward to welcoming everyone to the SO Legal Stadium during the new season."
The Club’s Hospitality & Partnership coordinator, Kelly Moxham added: “I am absolutely over the moon to welcome SO Legal on board as our new stadium sponsor.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Hamed over the last few weeks and we’re really excited about this partnership.”
