Oxford United are pleased to announce that Planet IT have extended their partnership with the club to be official sponsors of the North Stand at the Kassam Stadium.

The North Stand will be officially renamed as ‘The Planet IT Stand’ and will see Planet’s prominent branding installed on the stand, ahead of the Wigan Athletic game on Saturday.

From Saturday, fans will see Planet IT’s and Planet Recruitment’s logos on both ends of the stand as well as the panels at the top of the stand being fully branded by Planet IT. Also, if you are sitting in ‘The Planet IT Stand, you will see this renaming referred to on your match ticket – so look out for both these developments on Saturday.

Corporate Sales Executive at Oxford United Adam Harris said, “We’re delighted to announce the renaming of the North Stand at the Kassam Stadium from Saturday. With Planet IT being an ever-present business in the North Stand with their segregation banner, we all felt it was the right next step forward for this partnership with Planet IT.
