AFC Bournemouth has announced Wave 105 as its official commercial radio supporter for the sixth season running.

The Premier League club has chosen the south coast radio station, owned by media giant Bauer, to keep the lines of communication open with regional fans and help the Dorset football team strengthen its bonds with the local community.

Commercial director at AFC Bournemouth, Rob Mitchell, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our work with the south’s leading radio station for the sixth season. Our partnership with Wave 105 helps the club to connect with our community on a grass roots level and we are looking forward to strengthening these ties over the coming year.”

As with previous years, Wave 105 will be offering listeners exclusive ticket giveaways for select AFC Bournemouth home games throughout the season, in addition to other promotional opportunities.

Jon Brooks, commercial director at Wave 105 said: “It is hugely important to the station to maintain the partnership with AFC Bournemouth. Not only does our involvement allow us to truly serve the communities we broadcast to by keeping the fans up-to-date on the latest developments with their team, we can also help to raise the profile of the club to a regional audience both on and offline.”
