"We can’t divulge any more details quite yet, but we look forward to sharing more about what comes next with our supporters as soon as possible. Stay tuned."

As a condition to the purchase of Crawley Town by WAGMI United, the outgoing ownership agreed to provide the club clear of any existing sponsorship on the front shirt and stadium rights.

The current contract with principle sponsors The People’s Pension is set to end at the conclusion of the 2021-2022 season.

Alex Watts, revenue manager at Crawley Town, said: "Our partnership with The People’s Pension has made a positive impact in the community, and their support throughout the pandemic made a significant difference to our performance as a football club and as a business.”

"On behalf of the management, the players, the sponsors, and the fans, we would like to thank The People’s Pension for all their support."
