Scotland’s top women’s football team, Glasgow City FC are thrilled to announce the backing of Clydesdale Bank's Paisley Financial Solutions Centre (FSC) for 2012.
Winners of the Scottish Women’s Premier League for a record breaking five seasons in a row, Glasgow City will now proudly wear the Clydesdale Bank iconic logo on the back of their home kit as they begin the defence of their Premier League crown on March 18th.
Still incredibly playing in an unpaid capacity, the City first team stars combine full time jobs or studies with training up to ten times a week, a commitment and undoubted ability which saw them go all the way to the last sixteen of the UEFA Women’s Champions League last season against fully professional sides across the continent.
It was at one of City’s Champions League matches, when Clydesdale's Paisley FSC decided to give its backing to Scottish women’s sport at its best.
Glasgow City Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said, “To have Clydesdale Bank on board as one of our main supporters hopefully highlights the professionalism of our club both on and off the park. To have one of the most famous institutions in Scotland behind us is a brilliant boost for the season ahead and we will proudly wear their logo as we aim to defend our Championship title and Scottish Cup triumph from last year as well as competing once more in the biggest stage of them all, the UEFA Women’s Champions League.”
