The Riviera Hotel has been confirmed once again as the main sponsors of Weymouth Football Club for the new season.

The deal was first agreed in 2012 with the option for a third year.

The Riviera say they've been pleased with the tie up over the past two years which included the return of the Legends Sportsman Dinner with Graham Roberts as a special guest in 2013.

The Riviera Hotel reopened in 2012 ahead of the Olympics and is own by the Dhiafah Group, which own more than 18 hotels worldwide.

General Manager Carol Rooke said:

"The Riviera Hotel is extremely proud to be the main sponsor of Weymouth FC over the past two seasons and is very much looking forward to seeing the team flourish on the pitch under new manager Jason Mathews."
In statement to Wessex FM, Weymouth FC said;

"The Weymouth FC Board would like to say a big thank you to the Chairman Mr Abdul-Aziz Bin Mussallam for the Riviera Hotel being our main sponsor. The Chairman was extremely interested in Weymouth FC, which is in its 124th year and was happy that the Riviera Hotel was able to publicly support Weymouth FC as well as the community in this way. He also wanted to thank the Weymouth FC Supporters Association for donating the Riviera Hotel the Home and Away framed shirts which take pride of place on the wall behind the reception desk."

Weymouth FC's new home short will be revealed in the next few days.
