FC Barcelona has reached an agreement with Stanley Black & Decker by which the global tools provider will become an official Club sponsor. The deal relates to the power, hand and security tools pertaining to the brands in the group, namely STANLEY, BLACK+DECKER, DEWALT and FACOM. This partnership will run until July 2017, with the possibility of it being extended for a further season, and is a strategic alliance designed to create synergies between the two brands on a worldwide level.
Stanley Black & Decker, through its status as an official Club sponsor, thus acquires image association and digital marketing rights; sponsorship rights for tours and friendly matches; and hospitality rights in the Camp Nou.
The agreement will enable both entities to work together on promotional campaigns such as “Striker Challenge” by which consumers, when they purchase the group’s products, will have the chance to access different activities related with FC Barcelona (http://www.stanleytools.eu/striker-challenge).
This alliance is a further example of FC Barcelona’s desire to partner with leading and ambitious companies, with a global outlook and shared values, such as the passion for innovation. Stanley Black & Decker, meanwhile, will enjoy a high-profile presence in the Club’s different distribution channels.
