Thistle’s first ever sleeve sponsor FirstPoint USA have enjoyed a positive response to their partnership with the club – which has been like a journey in a time machine for CEO Andrew Kean.
FirstPoint, the world’s leading agency for USA sports scholarship admissions, will have their logo proudly displayed on the left arms of all Thistle men’s first team kits this season.
It is a homecoming of sorts for Kean who signed professional terms at Firhill in 2000 before hanging up his boots soon after and setting up FirstPoint.
Kean said: “It’s brilliant to be involved with the club again. Since we announced the partnership a couple of months ago, the reaction has been quite something, not only from the fans but from players, managers, coaches and staff across Scottish football and even further afield.
“The key objective for us is making more young sporting talent aware that a scholarship in the States just might be for them. If the Thistle partnership can help us provide a life-changing opportunity, such as I enjoyed, for more young sports men and women then it will have been more than worth it.”
