Greene King expands sports sponsorship

Greene King has signed a three-year deal to be the official beer sponsor of English football club Nottingham Forest.

Greene King and Nottingham Forest announced today (1 June) that the Suffolk-based brewer has secured pouring rights for its IPA brand at Forest's City Ground stadium.

Carlsberg was the previous sponsor at the 30,000 capacity stadium, a spokesperson for Forest confirmed to just-drinks. The club did not give a reason for the change.

"Nottingham is an important region for us and the success of our Trent FM Arena sponsorship has proven this," said Greene King's free trade sales director Joe Parks.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
