Gateshead Football Club has announced their newest partnership naming North East-based travel agents Dawson & Sanderson as Official Travel Partner. The well-known travel company has entered into an exclusive agreement with the club until the end of the 2022/2023 season.

As part of the deal, the award-winning travel agents will be responsible for providing travel to away games for the club’s first team and staff and will sponsor the ladies’ first-team and training kit, men’s travel kit, under 19’s training kits, and the academy kit.

In addition, match-goers will see the Dawson & Sanderson brand promoted on matchdays throughout the reception area, the corporate suite, and pitchside at the Gateshead International Stadium.

Bernard McWilliams, Vice Chairman of Gateshead Football Club, said, “We are delighted to announce our newest partnership with such a well-known and highly respected company. The team must have a reliable, flexible travel partner, and we look forward to working with the team at Dawson & Sanderson as we go through the season”.

In addition to the sponsorship opportunities in and around the ground, Dawson & Sanderson have also gained partner membership to the Gateshead FC Business Club. The Business Club was launched in September 2022 with a view to increasing networking opportunities for businesses in and around the Gateshead area and showcasing the facilities the stadium has to offer.

Annelene Hutton, Managing Director at Dawson & Sanderson, said: “We are thrilled to have reached a deal with Gateshead FC to become the Official Travel Partner for this season. We have been serving the North East for over 60 years, offering an amazing choice of holidays, great value and award-winning customer service. We are immensely proud to be working with the club and wish them the very best for the rest of the season”.

Gateshead Football Club were named National League North Champions in the 2021/2022 season and were recently joined by former Newcastle United goal-keeper and Irish International Rob Elliott, who joined the club as its first-ever Technical Director in August 2022.
