The Association's very first sponsor was Colin Brown of the Tyre Service Company in Histon Road, Cambridge who, in 1980, agreed to support the Cambridgeshire Premier League. Since then the Association has forged long-standing partnerships with a variety of sponsors across a wide field of football activities in the County.
At national level, the County values the support offered by Nike to enable and develop grass roots football. In Cambridgeshire Nike supports the County through the supply of clothing & equipment for staff & local projects.
At a local level, many of the County Cups are sponsored by local companies who have enjoyed long standing partnerships with the Cambridgeshire FA:supports & publicises the County's Respect & Fair Play Award, now in its 11th year.
The County Association also runs a number of Leagues:
The Cambridgeshire County League is played on Saturdays
sponsor the top three divisions, and their respective league cups. The Cambridgeshire FA and the Cambridge-based company, who began their sponsorship deal in 1991, have been working together for 25 years and this could possibly be the longest standing partnership of its type in the country!
Girls and Women:
Cambridgeshire 9 v 9 Youth League at U12s was introduced in 2009/2010 and it is sponsored by sponsor Barry Kempton of B.M. Kempton car body repairs.
The range of opportunities to provide sponsorship through football may be surprising and refreshing in the varying costs involved and the scope and variety in what we are looking to have sponsored.
The obvious opportunities are in sponsoring Leagues and Cup competitions as well as individual clubs.
In addition there are opportunities to sponsor:
- Tournaments such as Next Generation Festivals
- Cambridgeshire FA Youth Council
- The Cambridgeshire Flexi Football Programme
Whether you are a small one man business or a large regional, national or international company we believe we can offer you a sponsorship package to suit your profile and requirements whilst benefiting grassroots football and the local community.
