"This deal for them to become the club’s principal sponsor demonstrates how far we have come as a football club both on and off the field and the deal is on a par with many Football League Championship clubs.

"We look forward to working with Steve Fleming and his team to our mutual benefit.

"I would like to thank both PHB Construction Ltd and Middleton Murray for their support as home and away shirt sponsors this season and we are in discussion with both companies and hope that the existing brilliant relationships will continue into next season in another form."

Mr Fleming added: "We watched last night’s fantastic win over Bromley and are delighted to have been given the opportunity to support a growing club with such a great, family-run atmosphere.

"We loved the feel of the place and it is obvious Ebbsfleet United FC are going places.

"The ethos at the club fits very much with the approach we adopt at Mitsubishi Electric, where we try to treat our employees and our customers as part of the family.

"We hope our support can help Ebbsfleet become even more of an integral part of the community as the area develops and the fan base grows."
