Falkirk Football Club is delighted to welcome Hannigan Hotels as the clubs first Official Academy Partner since the reintroduction of the Falkirk Academy in 2021.

The Falkirk based and family run hotel chain, have signed up to an initial 3-year partnership with the potential of extending the sponsorship to 5-years, supporting the future development of the Academy.

Hannigan Hotels will sponsor the clubs Under 16 and Under 18 squads, as we aim to once again establish the club as one of the best in the country in the development of young players.

The Hannigan Hotels logo will be proudly displayed on the front of the shirts of the club’s academy squads and on the players training wear. Hannigan Hotels will be included in all academy promotion and communications as they become the latest Gold Partner of Falkirk FC.

Hannigan Hotels pride themselves on being a Falkirk company and one that is a key part of the town, which they are demonstrating through this long-term commitment to the club and community.

Falkirk Football Club CEO Jamie Swinney provided an overview of the partnership:

“The Falkirk Academy was once regarded as one of the finest in Scotland and this was backed up through the development of a fantastic number of young players into the clubs first team and beyond. The difficult period the club has experienced in recent years is in part due to the closure of the Academy.

“It is clear that to be a successful club, we must once again embrace the development of young players and show a commitment to this over many years. The future development of the Falkirk Academy is an integral part of the rebuild of the club, so we are delighted to welcome Hannigan Hotels as our Official Academy Partner. The club’s partnership with Hannigan Hotels will support the on-going and future development of the Falkirk Academy over the coming years”.

Graeme Stewart, Commercial Manager at Falkirk Football Club, said:

‘’The Club is delighted to welcome Hannigan Hotels as our Official Academy Partner. This investment will help Falkirk Football Club, in our aim to be one of the best producers and developers of youth footballers in Scotland. On behalf of the Club, our supporters, and our community, I wish to thank Douglas Hannigan and his team for their support.”

Douglas Hannigan, of Hannigan Hotels, commented:

“The Falkirk Academy is the jewel in the crown of Falkirk Football Club and the history of the academy is exemplary. Hannigan Hotels have made a 5-year sponsorship commitment to Falkirk Academy, sponsoring the Under 16s and 18s teams.

“Young players have an unrivalled thirst for success and namely success in football, nurturing this and growing their passion & having these players coming through the FFC Academy would give the opportunity to move them into Falkirk’s first team!

“Liverpool star Andy Robertson is a regular in the Scottish National side and recently played 90 minutes in the Champions League final, he was released by the Celtic Academy, these are the opportunities we should be seeking!

“Hannigan Hotels are proud to be the Official Academy Partner of Falkirk FC, truly we see this as an honour. Our company ethos has always been “work hard, think smarter”, hopefully the young people coming through The Academy will carry this attitude through their time playing with FFC.”
