The official mascot of Ideal Boilers went down a storm with fans at his first appearance on the football pitch.

‘Boiler Man’ got the crowd going during Saturday’s match at West Bromwich Albion Football Club, following the boiler manufacturer’s two-year sponsorship deal with the club.

The partnership sees the Ideal Boilers logo on players’ kits and training wear for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.

One fan even changed his Twitter handle to ‘Boiler Man Fan’ in honour of the combi boiler comrade.

‘Boiler Man’ has stated that he would like to retain his anonymity, but wants to thank all his fans for their support and promises he will make another appearance again soon.
