Ebbsfleet United rename Stonebridge Road as The PHB Stadium after sealing stadium naming rights agreement

18 July 2014

Ebbsfleet United's Stonebridge Road ground will be known as The PHB Stadium from this season.

The club have clinched a stadium naming rights agreement with PHB Construction, who carried out extensive work to smarten up the ground last summer.

PHB Construction were Ebbsfleet's shirt sponsors last season.

The full name of the ground, where the Fleet host Dagenham & Redbridge in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, will be The PHB Stadium, Stonebridge Road.

Fleet general manager Dave Archer told the club's website: "To conclude the final piece of our commercial jigsaw prior to the opening home friendly is fantastic.

"Mark Humphreys of PHB has been a great help to me since my arrival at Ebbsfleet United, which is why I am even more pleased to be able to continue our commercial partnership with PHB Construction.

"Stadium naming rights are happening throughout League and non-league football and this is the next logical step in our moves to transform the club and its home, while still keeping the historic Stonebridge Road name in the title."

PHB director Mark Humphreys added: "Myself and my fellow director Stephen Payton are once again delighted to be associated with the growth and expansion of EUFC and in particular with our company PHB being awarded the stadium naming rights, which I am sure in the future will see League opposition attending a constantly improving stadium."
