Morecambe’s Globe Arena to be renamed Mazuma Stadium
Recycler Mazuma Mobile has announced a three-year ground sponsorship deal with football club Morecambe FC.
The partnership will see Morecambe’s stadium, previously known as the Globe Arena, renamed as the Mazuma Stadium. Morecambe currently play in the EFL League Two, England’s fourth tier of professional football.
Mazuma relocated to Morecambe from Watford last year and claims to be the largest private employer in the Morecambe and Lancaster area.
Recently, managing director Craig Smith said it could add up to 50 staff after it added laptops and games consoles to its processing portfolio.
Morecambe FC commercial manager Martin Thomas said: “As a club, we feel that Mazuma are a perfect sponsor for Morecambe FC. They are a large local employer with many of their employees being Morecambe fans and it’s a fantastic brand to be associated with.”
Mazuma and Morecambe’s partnership is the latest in a series between telecoms companies and sports teams.
Additionally, Vodafone will be the lead partner for the British and Irish Lions rugby team on its tour of South Africa in 2021.
