Deliveroo has announced that they're giving away hundreds of free kits to womens' football teams across the country.
Following research showing that women’s and girls’ teams are most at risk due to reduction in club revenues, the online food delivery company have stepped in to help.
Community clubs have been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, losing sponsor revenue and other crucial income streams.
To combat the issue, Deliveroo has pledged to sponsor over 200 womens’ grassroots clubs across the UK, extending their Gift of Kit programme to recruit new female teams.
Clubs can apply via deliveroo-kit.co.uk between today (23 October) and 1 November, and over 200 teams will be selected to receive free branded kit as well as additional benefits, including:
- One set of 14 Deliveroo-branded and numbered Nike jerseys in a range of colours (x13 outfield, x1 goalkeeper)
- x100 £5 food vouchers for team/club members to use during 2021
- Access to additional Deliveroo offers, promotions and experiences during the season
Deliveroo's pledge comes after Monday’s announcement of the FA’s new four-year strategy, focused on inspiring positive change in women’s and girls’ football.
As an official partner of the England Women's team (The Lionesses), Deliveroo shares the FA’s ambition to create a sustainable future for women’s and girls’ football.
Speaking of the project, Caroline Harris, Marketing Director for Deliveroo said:
"We are committed to supporting the local communities that we are part of, and are grateful to have this opportunity to help local grassroots teams most in need, and get them back on their feet."
