Stirling Albion


We're proud of our long association with Stirling Albion Football Club that began with Scottish Amicable in the 2000/2001 season and was carried on by Prudential when the two companies came together. Our brand is proudly displayed on the shirts of the team and within their stadium.

The Club was the first supporter owned club in Scotland and is an important part of the local community. It runs various grassroots football programmes with local schools, community groups and holiday camps across the Stirling area.

We recently joined forces with the Club and local fundraising group The Scribbler's Picnic to organise 'Binos Live', a family friendly Community Festival.

On 25 June 2017 nearly 2,000 people flocked to Stirling Sports Village for the event, which was the perfect match between music and football themed fun.
