We’re delighted to announce that one of our lead partners, Harrod Sport has agreed to sponsor the 20/21 Norfolk Women’s Cup Competition.
One of the world’s biggest sports equipment manufacturers signed a three-year agreement to support Norfolk Football in 2019, and more recently extended that backing through the company’s new ‘Finesse’ Training range which is an official supporter of the Norfolk FA Coaches Club.
This latest expansion of our collaboration with the global sports equipment manufacturers will see our sole female County Cup Competition now known as The Harrod Sport Women’s Cup.
Harrod Sport, based in Lowestoft, currently provides equipment and goalposts to a multitude of Premier League Football Clubs, Wembley Stadium and St George’s Park. In addition to the English game, the organisation also supplies European giants such as Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Paris St Germain.
No strangers to giving back to local causes, The Ron Harrod Foundation was founded in 2018 by Harrod Sport to provide funding for sportsmen and women under 25 to help them compete. Named after the company’s late founder Ron Harrod, the foundation has awarded £5000 in funding towards local sports people each year since, as well as providing a two-year sponsorship of the Senior Women’s Team of local grassroots football club Wroxham FC.
The partnership has seen and continues to see Norfolk affiliated football clubs receive a 35% discount off the trade price of Harrod Sport’s full, world class product range, along with free carriage. Not to mention significant investment into providing top quality football equipment to our Football Development facilities.
Having launched their Finesse training equipment range in 2020, Harrod Sport has extended its support further this season. Norfolk FA Coaches Club members can receive 10% off all orders, and now the finalists of the Norfolk Women’s Cup will receive a selection of complimentary Finesse equipment.
Harrod Sport Sales & Marketing Executive, Kate Pasque said: “As proud partners to Norfolk FA, myself and everyone at Harrod Sport are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the Norfolk Women’s Cup Final. With us being 18 months into our partnership with Norfolk FA, and our Ron Harrod Foundation supporting a local women’s football team, it is a fantastic opportunity to work with Norfolk FA to further raise the profile of Women’s and Girls’ football in the area.
“We would like to thank Norfolk FA for this opportunity, and look forward to attending the final, with one or two prizes in hand!”
Norfolk FA Marketing & Communications Manager, Rebecca Burton added: “We can’t thank everyone at Harrod Sport enough for not only the support they’ve offered us, and Norfolk Football to date, but the additional levels of generosity they continue to show to our local game.
"Our partnership enables greater accessibility for grassroots football clubs in our County to obtain equipment at the same level of quality as the professional game, and I hope we are able to continue this hugely valuable collaboration for seasons to come.
