"The one-year deal will put the local community at the heart of the partnership, starting on Saturday’s game at Maes Eilian (Eilian's Field) as CPD Llanfairpwll FC take on Holyhead Town FC, where fans can see the new PUMA blue and black vertical striped shirt for the first time as well as prominent 'The Power of Our Fútbol' messaging around the ground."
