BANGIN’ Pizza, situated underneath the iconic Dumbarton Castle, have announced themselves as official sponsors of Dumbarton FC.
The small, close-knit team is committed to working with other local businesses to strengthen their community. Now, after six months of serving authentic Italian pizza to Dumbarton, Bangin’ Pizza have become sponsors of their home team.
Stephen Kirkwood, one of the founders of Bangin’ Pizza, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working on an official basis with Dumbarton Football Club. It’s been a long-term vision for us as a business and we cannot wait to kick off our partnership this coming season! We are passionate Dumbartonians ourselves and we’re bursting with ideas for the future. Working together as a community is one of our core values and we’re extremely proud to be aligning with our home team.”
Stephen and Gal also head up Dumbarton’s music and training business SKapade Studios, who have grown to become UK leaders in DJ and production education, encompassing its very own label for emerging artists and holding the title as Scotland’s only Pioneer DJ accredited school. After the pandemic wiped out 90 per cent of SKapade’s business, they took the opportunity to delve into a whole new industry.
The new sponsorship means Bangin’ Pizza will be the official ‘Man of the Match’ sponsor. Dumbarton FC and visiting teams – including the Scotland National team – will be treated to some of their amazing pizza on home matchdays, and fans will be given exclusive offers and deals.
Antonia Love, General Manager of Dumbarton FC said: “We’re so excited to have Bangin’ Pizza on board – it’ll really benefit us both moving forward!
“There is a great energy with Bangin’ Pizza and we cannot wait to grow our relationship. We hope this encourages other local businesses to get in touch and get involved with the club too.”
