Samsung to sponsor Leyton Orient for next football season
Leyton Orient has joined Chelsea and Swindon Town in being sponsored by Samsung.
The League One club will display the manufacturer's logo on the front of its home shirts, and the back of its away shirts for the 2012/13 season. Leyton Orient also secured a sponsorship deal with video game manufacturer Electronic Arts.
The home and away strips will be displayed at Samsung's store in Westfield, Stratford City in London between 21-29 April. Samsung UK & Ireland MD Andy Griffiths said: 'We are delighted to add Leyton Orient to our football sponsorships in the UK. 'Samsung is committed to supporting football at every level in this country. We believe that the game can only flourish if the grass roots are properly nurtured.'
