Latics announce sleeve sponsor for FA Cup third round

Date published: 07 January 2021

Oldham Athletic have announced Taurus Security Group as the sleeve sponsor for the Emirates FA Cup Third Round.

The deal will see the Manchester-based security firm’s logo feature on the left sleeve of the 125th anniversary home shirt, as the club hosts AFC Bournemouth at the weekend (Saturday 9 January - 3pm KO - Live on BT Sport Extra 6).

Established in 1998, Taurus is a professional security services provider to the property and construction industry, commercial office premises and sports and cultural events. Their services include manned guarding, mobile patrols, biometric entry systems, emergency cover, guard dogs, CCTV monitoring and installation, event stewarding and security.

On their continued sponsorship, Group Sales Director Alan Townley said; “We thoroughly enjoy working with and supporting Latics where we can and due to the success of the short sponsorship over the last few years, we jumped at the chance to sponsor the FA Cup sleeve.

“Oldham has a great history in the cup and hopefully Taurus Security Group can be associated with an historic afternoon that will live long in the memory.”

Latics’ Business Development Manager, Jamie Stoddart added; “As mentioned at the start of the season, the relationship we have with Taurus Security Group is brilliant and has gone from strength-to-strength in the last 18 months.

“For them to add the Emirates FA Cup sleeve to their repertoire shows that both parties are doing something right and long may it continue.”
