End of an era for the Corbett Sports Stadium

08 August 2018

Rhyl Football Club have confirmed that the stadium branding agreement with Corbett Sports has ended. The agreement has been in place since August 2013 during which time Belle Vue, the home of Rhyl Football Club for nearly 120 years, has been known as the Corbett Sports Stadium.

During these five years the Corbett Sports Stadium has hosted numerous matches including UEFA Europa League matches, UEFA Under 19’s European Championship qualifying games, JD Welsh Cup Semi Finals in addition to hosting games for Rhyl FC.

Rhyl FC’s Managing Director Mike Jones thanked Corbett Sports for their commitment to the club commenting that “without them and many of our other Partner Sponsors it would have been difficult to meet ongoing commitments such as the rental payments for the ground and to keep Rhyl FC surviving and seeking to achieve to be amongst the best teams in Welsh Football.” He also confirmed that “positive negotiations are taking place with Corbett Sports on a new Sponsorship agreement at the Club and it is hoped that an announcement can be made over the next few days."

It was also confirmed that talks with other companies on a stadium branding agreement were ongoing and it is hoped that an announcement will be made prior to the first home match of the season against Penrhyncoch on the 24th August.
