AS part of the developing partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, Dumbarton Football Club will receive film crews from France24 and RTE Ireland before, during and after tonight’s fixture against Forfar Athletic.
Solas Films in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce have chosen the Dumbarton constituency as it is a marginal seat in the upcoming Scottish Parliament Elections.
The crew have been filming in the constituency today, canvassing politicians and businesses on topics such as the economy, politics, post Brexit and the re-opening of business after lockdown.
As we are a business in the area, tomorrow they will focus on how the club have fared during Covid-19 and the views of the fans during lockdown.
The France 24 and RTE coverage came about as part of the new partnership alignment with Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce (DCC).
The Chamber has been working with Solas Films to help organise interviews and locations in the lead up to the Scottish Election.
Damon Scott, chief executive of DCC, said: “We’ve been working hard to ensure this international coverage for our area which will provide important profile for our towns, communities and businesses.
“DFC is part of all of these and as an important new partner was an obvious organisation to put forward to take part.”
We look forward to welcoming the crew this evening.
