Warrenpoint Town have struck a sponsorship deal with Q Radio that will see the local station sponsor their Milltown ground.

The stadium will now be called Q Radio Arena, with the deal providing a cash boost towards Town's fight to stay in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Matthew Tipton's side currently sit 10th in the league, with the manager admitting they're searching for fresh faces in the January transfer window.

Warrenpoint chairman Connaire McGreevy said: "This is an incredibly exciting time for the club. We are committed to developing relationships and establishing connections right across the local community and a partnership with the leading local radio station gives us the opportunity to do just that.

"We are the youngest club in the NIFL Premiership and it has been an incredible journey. We have a story to tell and look forward to sharing this with Q Radio listeners.

"We look forward to a winning partnership off the pitch as well as winning ways on the pitch for the remainder of the season."

Q Radio have recently announced five FM licence extensions, which has boosted their coverage across the province.

The radio station are already the official media partners of Ulster Rugby, with this their first deal with a football side.

Robert Walshe, managing director and head of programmes at Q Radio, said: "We are delighted to be joining forces with Warrenpoint FC at a time when the club are enjoying a hard-won promotion to the NIFL Premiership. The Warrenpoint and Newry listeners have been a part of this exciting Q Radio journey and this represents a fantastic opportunity to engage and interact directly with our listeners.

"Q Radio pride ourselves on being a local station with local content for local people.

"This announcement, alongside our current broadcast partnership with Ulster Rugby demonstrates the station's commitment to and support of local sport across Northern Ireland."
