Chivas Brothers renews sponsorship of newly promoted Dumbarton Football ClubChivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky and premium gin business of Pernod Ricard, has announced it is to sponsor Scottish Football League team Dumbarton FC for the fourth consecutive season with its Ballantine’s Scotch whisky. The latest deal will run from the end of August 2009 until July 2010 and will see the continued use of the Ballantine’s logo on the team’s home and away strip.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Christian Porta, Chairman and CEO of Chivas Brothers says: “We are delighted to announce that Dumbarton’s most famous whisky, Ballantine’s, will continue to be associated with its most famous football team.

The club’s Chairman Gilbert Lawrie added: “We are looking forward to Chivas Brothers continued support next season. Having just secured the SFL Third Division Championship it is an exciting time for Dumbarton Football Club and the local community.”

He continued: “Our ongoing partnership with Chivas Brothers through the Ballantine’s brand is a tremendous boost for the club.”
