Bolton Wanderers pull out of QuickQuid deal

BOLTON Wanderers have pulled out of their controversial sponsorship deal with pay day loan company QuickQuid.

In a statement, the football club said it had “underestimated the adverse reaction” to the announcement.

Chairman Phil Gartside said: “We have worked for years to build trust and participation with the community through our community trust, education programmes, and other initiatives that are currently underway in partnership with local and national government.

“We don’t want our commercial relationships to come between us and our community, and neither does QuickQuid.”

Wanderers’ new sponsor will be Fibrlec, a technology partner with the University of Bolton.

FibrLec is a new Bolton-based sustainable energy company that specialises in commercialising the university’s innovative smart materials.

Its logo, incorporating the university logo, will feature on the club’s new match kit and training wear for the next two years.

Cllr Christopher Peacock, who launched a petition to get the club to reconsider following the announcement, which was revealed last Wednesday, said today: “I’m absolutely delighted with the news.

“I think first and foremost it’s fantastic that Bolton Wanderers have taken this proactive step and they deserve credit.”

As reported in The Bolton News, the announcement caused outcry across Bolton, with opponents claiming it was not in keeping with the Whites’ image as a community-based “family club”.

The move also led to Bolton’s leaders — including council leader Cliff Morris and the borough’s three MPs — taking the unusual step of releasing a strongly worded joint statement citing their “serious concerns” over the deal.

Petitions were also launched, one by Bolton Cllr Peacock and Kate Challender, and another online petition which picked up more than 1,500 signatures in 24 hours, with campaigning London MP Stella Creasy travelling to Bolton last Thursday to attend a demonstration outside the town hall.

Two Bolton firms, Purple Property Shop and Booths Music, also pulled their sponsorship from the club in protest.

Wanderers said in their statement: “The club have taken on board feedback from our fan base and following discussions between chairman Phil Gartside and several local and national politicians, including leader of Bolton Council Cliff Morris, the club will no longer be entering into a sponsorship agreement with QuickQuid.

“The club is proud of its place in the local community and has worked tirelessly for a considerable time to build relationships across a wide spectrum of community projects.

"In particular the successful education programmes, which have seen more than 350 students pass through the club in the last two years, and the continued exceptional work of the club’s community trust.

“Whilst we anticipated some negative responses from the initial agreement, we underestimated the adverse reaction to the sector of business in which the sponsor operated.

"We undertook significant research into QuickQuid and were satisfied that they were a regulated and responsible lender.”

Cllr Morris added: “I am pleased with Bolton Wanderers Football Club’s decision to reconsider their recent sponsorship proposal”.

“We have been in discussion with the club since last week’s announcement to raise our concerns and those of the community.

“Their response clearly shows the value the club places on the support of their fans and the wider Bolton family.”

Wanderers added in the announcement: “After speaking with the University of Bolton, chancellor, Baroness Morris of Bolton, and vice chancellor Dr George Holmes, and building on our already active partnership with the university, they introduced us to one of their technology partners, FibrLec."

Mr Gartside said: “We are proud that our club will be working closely with a local community technology company that has grown from the University of Bolton.”

Dr Holmes said: “The university already has a close working relationship with Bolton Wanderers in the field of sport and exercise science and sports rehabilitation for elite athletes.

"This latest venture builds further on this strategic partnership.”

£500k over 2 years..LOL! Not exactly astronomical figures. Being a little more savvy in the player sales market and that could easily be made up..ie. selling Matt Mills for £1.5m as opposed to £1m..!
I'm sure the Morris's have sorted Gartside out with a decent share of Fibrlec. Good end-of-year financial results for the company will I'm sure end up in BWFC's coffers..(?).

Great news it may be, but remember one thing. Had there been no internet/social networking we would have been stuck with that idiot Gartside's pathetic idea of having QuickQuid as a sponsor. A handful of very well intended people on the town hall square and no internet wouldn't have changed their minds.

This is excellent, but it's only come about because of technology. Gartside should never have been in the position he is. He's a clueless, self centred and smug idiot, and as yet I've never heard or met anyone who like the bloke. He is not fit for purpose, never has been.

Next job is to get rid of him, and the sooner the better. Let's have another petition on change.org and get him packing.

It still amazes me how people can moan about the sponsor, the club listen after making an error of judgement and get it changed and then people still find stuff to moan about.

1. Who says they have no money?Have you access to either the partnership bank accounts or even the company accounts? - oh and btw the company accounts do not have to be posted untl 12 ths after first registering with Companies Registration Office - and as such there will be no details until at least next March!

2. A shoddy website - you use this one which is poor compared to come comapnies - or have you seenteh BWFC website, ITV.com or even multinational companies such as Primark whe website is even poorer than FibrLec's!!!

3. Can you tell me by which law a domain name is not allowed to be in individual names? It is a small company that has just started out and as such savings costs - I know many small coanies tat do the exact same practice!!!

4. Not allcompanies register with Companies Registration Office - only if they want to be a Limited Company or a PLC. Partnerships, sole businesses and non-Limited Companies - as well as chrities and trusts are not registered at the CRO - do that make them shoddy?

As it is FibrLec started off by 2 ex University of Bolton students, whilst still at University - that have patented their product - which is worth some money by the way- and are influenced, and influencing the University of Bolton. Started off as a "trading as" company before becoming a partnership and more recently a limted company. They could have even chosen the LLC/LLP route which means they needn't have registered with Companies Registration Office!

Now, again, tell me how shady FibrLec are, as a company, without actually knowing teh business, the people or even their accounts?

Read my post, it said the website is shoddy, not the business.

Read nominets rules regarding domains, the domain reads as a uk individual, not a trading company, yes loads do it, and loads get it wrong.

Why is the domain ending up at an ipaddress. Why is the .com still pointing to 123, As I said, very unprofessional for a technology company.

The last guy is obviously a bit naive but hats off to him for asking questions, all I would say is just because it's a newly formed company doesn't mean it is dodgy or has no trading history, plus it may not concentrate it's business on web technology. In any case, big companies with lots of money begin life with one 'shoddy' website and company management from a residential attic. I'm certain BWFC know what they're doing, they are a multi million pound club and fortunately not being run by that user.

Regarding the sponsorship, hats off to BWFC for the pull. Fans are quick to jump on the clubs back when they don't agree with a decision but not so quick when their voice has been heard. I for one feel great that signing the petition has made a small but collective difference for the greater good.

The fact that Gartside entered into the deal in the first place says everthying about the mans morality and ethics. Anything for a quick quid!! He should wear the T-shirt himself.

Why naive?

This company is the major sponsor, its online presence is not very good.

The company has been set up with no sic code, something an accountant would not do, so it looks like an off the shelf incorporation, the share allocation also backs that up.

Again for the people who choose not to read, I never said the business was shoddy, I said the website.

I have no clue about their business, but the way the online has been set up, and how the incorporation has been done is shoddy.

There website looks like its on the Bolton UnI servers, so clearly well hooked in with them.

It is great that a local business is involved and the others are out.

However as I said I would love to see the deal, they are clearly a commercial entity so what would be achieved with public sponsor, its never going to generate trade, it may be good for corporate entertainment depends on the deal.
