The arrangement sees TEXO becoming the Club’s official young player Talent Partner from season 2017/18.   This agreement also builds on the previous-formed Heroes of Tomorrow initiative between AFC and Statoil and further extends the Club’s relationship with a number of local businesses in the private sector.   This is TEXO’s first sponsorship arrangement with Aberdeen Football Club albeit they’ve been regulars within Pittodrie Stadium and attended both of our Cup Finals last season.   Commenting on the partnership, Neil Simpson Head of AFC Youth Academy said “We’re delighted to welcome TEXO onboard as our new Talent Partner – we’ve some very exciting and talented young players within our academy system so it’s really important that we’re able to support their development into potential full-time professionals at the Club. TEXO’s sponsorship will enable us to continue with a number of initiatives. This great news and we look forward to working closely with them in future.”   John Wood, Operations Director of TEXO DRONE Survey & Inspection added: “We recognise that Aberdeen FC is a stellar institution in this area, one which not only provides professional sport for its supporters on match-days, but which is connected with businesses and organisations across the region and reaches out into the local community in so many other ways.   Being recognised as the Club’s Talent Partner assisting them in their youth development programme with local children ticks a number of boxes for our company and we are both pleased and proud to have this association with AFC.”   TEXO has ambitious plans to deploy its range of best-in-class drone technologies and services across the onshore and offshore energy sector, and will be an exhibitor at this year’s Offshore Europe exhibition and conference event at the AECC in September.   Read the full story on the AFC site here
