NEC signs Eredivisies longest-term contract: “This is no ordinary extension”

NEC has opened and renewed the contract with main sponsor KlokGroep. The name of the construction company appears on the Nijmegen people‘s shirt until mid-2029. This makes NEC the Eredivisie club with the longest-running contract with the main sponsor.
KlokGroep and NEC have been linked since 2019. When the Gelderland club forced promotion to the Eredivisie in 2021, the partnership was extended for the first time. Where both parties reached an agreement for two years at the time, plus an option for another year, KlokGroep and NEC are now going further together for much longer.
Managing Director Wilco van Schaik calls it not an ordinary extension. This is an important partnership of no less than seven seasons. The mutual trust we have in each other was the basis for this extension, he says on the club site. In the coming years, we will continue to build new successes together, not forgetting where we come from. We take Nijmegen and its surroundings into our hearts and plans!
According to Voetbal International, NEC is taking a financial blow with the extension. KlokGroep is reportedly going to pay more for the spot on the front of the shirt. In addition, the construction company is one of NEC’
s most important partners in the expected renovation of the stadium.
