The relationship will see Newcastle Airport enjoy a significant presence across the Gers digital platforms and at Shielfield Park over the coming years, including the promotion of its new brand campaign, ‘Discover the World from Your Airport’, a new section on the website showcasing the full range of destinations available from the airport.

Fans will have already noticed advertising boards behind both goals at Shielfield Park, and the airport’s Shielfield presence will also be seen during campaigns at the home of the Gers at different stages throughout the season.

Local MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan, who has vocally supported causes of the club in the House of Commons previously and also demonstrated her backing for the club’s new Academy was in attendance, while Berwick Rangers boss John Coughlin was also at Shielfield Park for the launch.

The airport have also agreed to become the official sponsor of the club’s weekly newsletter, which will now also feature an item from the airport once per month.

Berwick will also benefit from an agreement to make the airport the club’s official social media account sponsors, making everything from match day updates to the latest transfer news provided in association with Newcastle Airport.

On the partnership, Berwick Rangers commercial director Graham Bell said: “We’re both ecstatic and hugely grateful to have obtained the backing of Newcastle Airport.”

Graeme Mason, planning and corporate affairs director at Newcastle International Airport, added: “We are delighted to work with Berwick Rangers and look forward to developing our partnership with the club and its supporters.”
