Lifelong Stoke City supporter Stephenie Altham from AdGiftsOnline Limited had a Birthday and Christmas surprise when the company was the Official Match Sponsor for the Stoke City versus West Bromwich Albion match on 28th December.
AdGiftsOnline used the event to launch their fresh new brand identity to the 28500 fans at Britannia Stadium on the main and pitch-side screens. Steph’s day got even better when she went on to the pitch before kick off to meet the 2 Captains and match officials followed by Manager Mark Hughes in the dugout. She later named Mame Biram Diouf as the Man of the Match.
Her absolute highlight was discovering that she was sat next to the Stoke City Legend, Terry Conroy, for lunch. Steph saw Terry score the winning goal for Stoke against Chelsea in the 1972 League Cup Final at Wembley, which gave the pair plenty to talk about.
Managing Director, Tony Altham, said, “It was a pleasure to support our Premiership football team and we enjoyed meeting the captains and awarding Mame Biram Diouf with the Man of the Match trophy. The sponsorship allowed AdGiftsOnline to showcase our new branding to thousands of people in our city and reinforced our position as a long established local promotional merchandise distributor.
All that said however, meeting Terry Conroy and seeing Steph chatting with one of her all time footballing heroes was a wonderful surprise bonus. The day ended perfectly with another win for Stoke City.”
