Barnsley Football Club

Official Club Partner

Prototype Creative are delighted to announce a new Official Club Partnership with Barnsley Football Club.

The Story

The partnership sees Prototype Creative become the Club’s new exclusive provider for marketing and design services throughout the 2016/17 season. Furthermore, the Prototype brand is now proudly displayed on the newly-installed stadium tunnel and our official match ball stand.

On the new partnership, Gavin Winder, Creative Director at Prototype Creative commented, “We are overjoyed to form a working partnership with Barnsley Football Club. The opportunities that this sponsorship will create for us will allow us to seriously grow.

“As lifelong Reds fans, it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to work alongside the Club during what is a really positive and successful period in the Club’s history. We hope this partnership continues into the Premier League!”


Barnsley FC’s Commercial Manager Ian Leech was thrilled to have secured another commercial partnership and said, “We’re delighted to welcome Gavin, Josh and the team at Prototype on board as our latest commercial partner. After our initial meeting, they took the time to really understand us as a Club and our goals and ambitions off-the-field. Prototype are right at the cutting edge when it comes to design services and I’m really excited to work with them and see first-hand the impact that their expertise will have at the Club.

“All of the designers at Prototype are Barnsley fans, so they really understand what it means to be a Red and how important this Club is to the local community. Therefore, they are the perfect company to help us engage with our proud and loyal supporters through modern and creative design. Prototype are a forward thinking, creative, local based company that we as a Club are proud to be associated with, and we can’t wait to get going!”
