Cambridge United Business Development Manager, Gary Atyes, was upbeat about the new development: "I'm delighted and proud we have secured Greene King as our new main shirt partners and beer suppliers.
"It makes for a great match. They are a successful, well regarded local company with great beers and a team of people who are as passionate about quality ale as they are about customer service.
"This association is fantastic news for the U's: not only will we have great beer on our bars, but we will also be able to work with local pubs to build grass roots support. Both our organisations are an integral part of the local community and the link we have made will be used to benefit U's supporters and pub customers alike".
The Bury St Edmunds based brewer is well known in the eastern region for their sponsorship of Ipswich Town, which they took on following its relegation in 1995 and which saw the club rise up the tables over the years to finish fifth in the Premier League and to compete in Europe the following season.
Greene King's managing director, Justin Adams, commented: "We are excited to

Our organisations and people share the same values, which revolve around bringing pleasure to fans and customers, and importantly our desires to support our local communities. We are relishing the opportunity to work together on some great local activity in the coming years".
Greene King will be helping the club to upgrade the bar facilities around the ground to make sure the fans get a great pint of beer at match days.
"We are determined to make this a win for Cambridge United fans and Greene King pub-goers alike," concluded Justin Adams.
