Chartered accountants and business advisers Hill Osborne have signed with AFC Bournemouth for a tenth year in succession.

The Poole and Wimborne based independent firm will again be Official Partners of AFC Business, the Premier League club’s commercial arm, for the 2019/20 season.

Hill Osborne has partnered with AFC Business since its inception in 2009 and will continue to be headline sponsor of the AFC Bournemouth Chairman’s Luncheon, the fourth of which will be hosted by Jeff Mostyn in February 2020.

Hill Osborne will continue to have advertising around Vitality Stadium, brand visibility at AFC Business events and have strong presence at both corporate and club events throughout the season, engaging with companies across the region.

Originally established in the mid-1960s, Hill Osborne offers a comprehensive range of accountancy and business advisory services to private individuals and companies across many sectors, specialising in family owned and controlled businesses.

AFC Bournemouth Partnerships Manager Amy Marks said: “We warmly welcome Hill Osborne back on board for another season. The support we have received over the year from this firm is second-to-none and we look forward to a continuing and successful partnership.

Hill Osborne Director Richard Osborne said: “We have enjoyed a close relationship with AFC Bournemouth for many seasons and have watched the club flourish. We anticipate another season of excellent football and vibrant business events.”

AFC Business, the free to join business club with 1,800 members, is the engine for all the club’s commercial activities.

It was launched in 2009 and gives members exclusive offers at AFC Bournemouth, access to events and is a great chance to meet local businesses.

The monthly events ­– consisting of breakfasts, evening occasions and director level events – are well established and regularly sell out in advance.
