We believe this partnership will see us reaching even more new customers and is also in line with our on-going investment in UK sport; we already offer grass-roots football teams across the country the opportunity to get brand new numbered and badged kit for an entire squad by collecting just 400 CDs or DVDs at Everyone at musicMagpie wishes Shrewsbury Town the best of luck in League Two this season.”

Anton Gunter, commercial manager for Shrewsbury Town FC, said: “We are very pleased to have a national brand now sponsoring the shorts. It once again shows just how Shrewsbury Town can be used as a platform for not only advertising services or products but also to showcase different.

It was the perfect time to launch our partnership with musicMagpie and we look forward developing our relationship with the brand.
