Exeter City Football Club are delighted to announce that The Unicorn Hotel are the back of shorts sponsors for all official first team kit for the 2016/17 season.

The Unicorn Hotel, situated in Somerton in the very heart of Somerset, is run by Shaun Standen and family. With a history of at least 350 years, The Unicorn comprises a spacious, comfortable bar area, six en-suite bedrooms, and a separate cottage. A function room is available for large parties, weddings receptions, music events, meetings and much more. The Unicorn are well reputed for offering a varied and inventive Food Menu that changes with the seasons, using the finest locally sourced ingredients.

This is not the first time The Unicorn have invested in Exeter City. Shaun and his family are regular match and ball sponsors at St James Park, and enjoy matchday Hospitality throughout the whole season.

Mark Jenkins, Head of Commercial at Exeter City said: “We are delighted The Unicorn Hotel have signed up as back of short sponsors. Shaun and his family have been strongly involved with the Club throughout the 15/16 season, sponsoring matches and enjoying hospitality; this is the next step in developing a long-lasting partnership.”

Shaun Standen, owner of The Unicorn Hotel said: “The Unicorn Hotel are pleased to have been presented with the opportunity to partner Exeter City FC this season. We are proud to have such a strong bond with the club, as shown with match sponsorships last season. To see the lads sporting our logo on the kit this year is very special to us.

The Unicorn is very much a family orientated business and throughout our visits last year to St James Park we were made to feel a welcome part of the Exeter City FC family and that played a large part in our decision to come on board commercially.

For the Grecians travelling to and from away games they can always be assured of a warm and friendly welcome at The Unicorn.

We are excited to see what Paul Tisdale and the team can achieve this season; and we will be cheering from the stands with everyone else and hope to see the Grecians at the business end of the table come the end of the season.
