Having been established in 1866, Chesterfield FC has a long, proud history, and is one of the oldest clubs in the English Football League. The club has survived two world wars and seen all the highs and lows professional football has been able to throw at them. Now in 2016, the long standing club is celebrating their 150th Anniversary.
To commemorate the milestone, Sign Specialists Ltd were honoured to be chosen to assist in the design, overall manufacture & installation of a bespoke, commemorative 150th anniversary sign. Previous work for Walsall FC, during the celebration of their 125th Anniversary proved an overwhelming success and stood us in good stead for the Chesterfield project.
The recognisable colours of Chesterfield FC were worked into the design in the form of a bespoke blue flex face background that housed 1 metre high white aluminium letters. In addition to this, supporter’s names were digitally printed onto the letters in recognition of the fans commitment to the club.
Throughout the entire 2016/17 season, the sign will take pride of place above the main Proact Stadium Entrance before being moved to a lower level in the summer of 2017, which will allow supporters to have their photos taken in front of it.
On completion of the project, Chris Turner, Chief Executive of Chesterfield F.C thanked Sign Specialists for our “very professional & excellent work” saying “the sign looks excellent, everyone at CFC is delighted with it”
