By Paul Lagan

Emma Hayes has welcomed a new shorts sponsor to the club. She tweeted: “Welcome on board @nplus1singer to the Chelsea family.

“Look forward to working with you.”

N+1 Singer are an investment bank advising and funding companies in the UK.

It's a three-year deal.

They are the women's club's first shorts partner, and their logo will appear on the kit, on Sunday, when the Blues face Brighton at Kingsmeadow.

The logo is not currently available on replica kit.

Chelsea chief executive Guy Laurence said: ‘We welcome the commitment of N+1 Singer to the women’s game and we share their ambition to see it grow exponentially on and off the pitch.


“With their philosophy that successful businesses are built on shared equity, we could not be happier that N+1 Singer will bring their ethos and support to Chelsea FC Women as we pursue our ever more ambitious sporting and commercial targets.”

Tim Cockroft, chief executive and founder of N+1 Singer, said: “We are hugely impressed with the dedication and hard work this group of women have brought to their game; both on and off the pitch.

“We look forward to supporting their ambitions over the coming years and being part of their continued success.”

Joanna Osborne, head of marketing of N+1 Singer said: “Chelsea FC Women are an exceptionally talented group of women who continue to inspire the football world and all those who look up to them.

“They are also a group of very genuine and relatable women, so we are thrilled to be able to work with them, learn off them and support their ambitions over the next few years of our partnership.”
