THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOL. GOT YOU!
Barnet Football Club has today agreed one of the biggest financial takeover deals in Football League history with the owners of Wash & Go. As part of the arrangement, the club will be renamed Great Barnet and the club crest will be redesigned for the start of the 2017/18 season.
The agreement also includes naming rights to Barnet FC’s state of the art stadium, which will be known as The Wash & Go Stadium . In addition, the Great Barnet home kit will transition from the traditional black and orange to “Wash & Go green”.
Tony Kleanthous said “We need more money to get the club to its rightful place and this prestigious brand will enable us to invest in the team and climb up the league, which is great news for our fans and everyone else associated with the club.”
A spokesman from Wash & Go said “we have admired Barnet for a long time now and we are delighted to be able to link our hair care brand with this stylish football club. We applaud Mr Kleanthous’ visionary approach to our relationship and look forward to improving player performance, on the pitch and in the shower.
Further details of the deal and reactions are expected to emerge shortly on www.barnetfc.com .
