Being given the chance to sponsor a football team is perhaps something that many small business owners only dream of. The very prospect of having their name and logo emblazoned across the front of a football shirt could be considered little more than a pipe dream, as it’s something you’d normally associate with only the biggest companies in the world.
But we’re absolutely over-the-moon here at VisionSharp, because we’ve been given the opportunity to sponsor Chadderton Park FC!
First set up in 1979, Chadderton Park have become an integral part of the Oldham community, with a huge number of different football teams and other sports all kept under their umbrella. In recent years, the club became known as Chadderton Park Community Sports Club to reflect the fact that it’s so much more than a football club, offering people of all ages the chance to get involved in sport.
At VisionSharp, we’ve always felt it’s important to give a little something back to the community, and so we’re incredibly proud to be the new sponsor for the Open Age football team. If that wasn’t enough, then maybe you’d like to know that our very own director Jon Irvine plays for them too, and so gets to take to the pitch in one of his own Vision-sponsored shirts!
It’s no secret that Chadderton Park does an awful lot for the community, and it’s particularly their work with children that earns them such recognition. With teams for everyone from Under 5 to over 35, as well as netball teams and rounders clubs, Chadderton Park offer a little something everyone… so there’s no excuse not to get involved!
The great work they do over there hasn’t gone unnoticed either, and they were recently named Club of the Year at the Oldham Sports Awards, while the likes of Paul Scholes have been involved with the club in the past.
It’s this sense of community and togetherness that makes us incredibly proud to be a part of this club, and we hope that each and every one of the Chadderton Park teams goes on to enjoy great success this year!
As the best web designers in Manchester, it’s great to have our business attached to such an iconic and inspirational football club- so here’s to a season to remember!
