We are delighted to announce that Genesis Teamwear will be providing their backing to AFC Wimbledon's next generation of footballers by sponsoring our academy set-up.
Genesis Teamwear, which is part of the PUMA Group Company, will be official sponsors of the academy for the 2018/19 season.
The sponsorship deal will help our youth system to build on the success of recent seasons with Will Nightingale, Anthony Hartigan and Egli Kaja among those to have become regular first-team squad members.
Academy Manager Jeremy Sauer said: "The Academy are delighted to have such fantastic support and generous sponsorship from Genesis. It allows us to increase investment in our programme and expand the development that our young players receive. I'm confident that the results of this will be seen on the pitch before long. Thank you from all the players and staff at the Academy."
AFC Wimbledon Commercial Director Ivor Heller said: "We are delighted to continue our great relationship with Genesis Teamwear. Having worked with Genesis on Admiral and now Puma it is really gratifying that they have decided to support our club in this way. Genesis really get the community aspect of our club and have bought into it. I would like to thank Russ Thomas for his work on this. I must also thank Jonathan Hamburger for his generosity and love of the club."
