Stagecoach North East is delighted to announce a significant new sponsorship deal with Hartlepool United.

The company, which operates bus services in Hartlepool as well as across the country, has agreed a sponsorship package which will see them working with the club over the next eighteen months.

Mark Maguire, Chief Executive, commented: “I am thrilled to welcome Stagecoach North East as a partner. They are an important company locally and nationally and are invested in the community and we look forward to delivering significant value for their involvement with us over the next eighteen months and hopefully beyond.
