The Owls’ last five shirts have had Dejphon Chansiri’s name on them as the main sponsor as the Wednesday Chairman continues to pump money into the club, with ‘Azerbaijan, Land of Fire’ the last non-Chansiri shirt sponsor that SWFC had.

Now though, The Star has been led to believe that a number of talks and meetings have taken place as Wednesday look into the possibility of picking up a sponsor for the season ahead.

When launching the new kits back in July, the club said, “Front of shirt branding for the 2020/21 season will be confirmed in due course and supporters should note that all new official replica shirts could carry the name of the respective sponsor.”

Wednesday face Cardiff City this weekend in their Championship opener in Wales and are likely to wear their away kit once again given the host’s colours, and it remains to be seen if it will once again be the technical sponsor who occupies front and centre.

Obviously Chansiri and his management team will be eager to make sure that any deal is one that makes sense for all parties, and should that deal not be found then his name is likely to be on the front once more.

The Owls face Cardiff at 3pm on Saturday afternoon as the 2020/21 season officially gets underway.
