Lindsays assists Scottish Building Society on its historic sponsorship deal with the SWPL

Posted: 5th September 2017

Lindsays’ Partner Douglas Roberts, from the firm’s sports law team, advised Scottish Building Society as it became the first major sponsor of Scottish Women’s Football (SWPL).

The world’s oldest building society, the Scottish Building Society, has become title sponsor of Scottish women’s senior football leagues after agreeing a six-figure sponsorship deal over the next three years. This significant investment will ensure continued growth and development at a key time for the sport and also means that for the first time prize money will be presented to the League winners in 2018.

Douglas commented: “Lindsays are delighted to have assisted SBS with this significant sponsorship package”.

Kerra McKinnie, Head of Marketing and Communications at the Scottish Building Society, said: “We are grateful for the valuable legal advice provided by Lindsays and their expertise in sports law was of great help in agreeing this deal.”
