The presenter of popular television programme Man vs Food will sponsor a Lincoln football team for the second successive season.

Adam Richman has confirmed that he will sponsor Broadley FC, a Sunday league football team created in September 2011 in honour of Richard Broadley, who died from leukaemia aged just 20.

The club now has two teams, one in Lincoln and the other in Grimsby.

Adam’s generous sponsorship will fund both sides in the upcoming campaign.

This year, Adam has sponsored the club £1,500, which will go towards club jackets for the Grimsby side, a new kit for the Lincoln side and pitch fees in Lincoln.

Both sides will also receive a number of match balls.

Last year, Adam also handed over £800 of his own money to the club, covering not only the pitch fees but also buying personalised jackets for the squad and shirts with the logo of his production company on it.

“We are so grateful to Adam for his genuine passion for our club! For a club of our size, Adam’s sponsorship is absolutely massive.”
