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.

Having just secured the SFL Third Division Championship it is an exciting time for Dumbarton Football Club and the local community.”
