Our Brand new programme aims to connect Business with Football.

The programme concentrates on 5 stands of engagement. We are seeking organisations that may be interested in teaming up with us in one of more of these areas.

1.            Sponsorship of Football Programmes
We are searching for partners that may be interested in becoming title sponsors for our 18 County Cup Competition programme, our Walking Football Programme and our Representative Squad.

2.            Engagement with local business
This is a key area for us, as a local business ourselves, we are looking for ways to engage with organisations that may have an interest in grassroots football. This could be playing & volunteering opportunities for your employees or joint initiatives to support grassroots football. If you have an idea of how we can work together, please get in touch.  

We also have our own meeting space within the Office, here in Abingdon. We are encouraging local businesses to take a look at our dedicated website to see what is on offer. All at very competitive prices.

3.            Training & Development
Our Clubs and leagues are effectively running small businesses themselves. A great deal of responsibility is put on our volunteer workforce and it is important that we give our clubs/leagues the skills to operate. We are looking for joint initiatives with companies that can provide training to our members. This may be finance, marketing or general business skills. Let us know if your business has a skill it can offer to our clubs and leagues.

4.            Direct Offers to our Members
In a time where there is an additional stress on our clubs financially, we at Berks & Bucks FA are keen to find ways of supporting our clubs. This could be a discounted service or  a product that is of use to our members.  To date we have established partnerships with Discount Football Kits, Mark Harrod Goals and Koolpak first aid kits. We feel that it is vitally important that we assist our clubs in making valuable funds stretch further.

5.            Charity Partner Engagement.
Our partner for the 2016-17 season is the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. We have worked with the charity for the past 4 seasons raising funds and awareness for the charity.
