GlucoRx has built on the sponsorship with Aldershot Town FC for another season – now on all youth department team shirts.
In our mission to raise awareness of diabetes and promote preventative habits, we have extended our relationship with the professional football team. Our name will be on the shirts of all 276 players aged 8-16 throughout the 2016-17 season. As the second largest supplier of diabetic products to the NHS, we are proud to promote our brand in such a suitable way.
The youth department was launched with the help of Sam Waters in January. Their first season of the NERF Premier League has just begun, and they have already succeeded in a tournament at the Barcelona Nou Camp stadium.
Waters expressed his gratefulness for our support “The sponsorship they have provided ensures that we are not only able to portray a professional image, but also provide our players with additional developmental support which will help to make them better football players and better people.
“It is extremely important for us to develop relationships with companies such as GlucoRx, who are doing some incredible work to promote healthy living. This work goes hand-in-hand with supporting the education of players within the Club’s youth department to ensure all local children begin to value the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.”
Formed in 1992, Aldershot Town FC is a professional football club based in Aldershot, Hampshire. We will be working more closely with them this season and aim to raise awareness of diabetes, among children who will benefit from knowing about preventative measures from a young age.
Our sales director Chris Chapman says “I personally cannot think of any better vehicle to get this message across than football,”. He shares his enthusiasm for teaching the importance of healthy eating and exercise, especially to those who can prevent Type II diabetes and obesity before they have to worry about it. “It could be watching or playing football – I know my son Ryan loves nothing more than kicking a ball around on the pitch, hence why I am really pleased to have extended our sponsorship to the Youth Team. We hope to really make a difference to our local community and also hopefully thousands of lives in the future.”
