We are delighted to announce that Hyped Marketing have committed to sponsorship of girls' football in Surrey for the 2020/21 season.
The Hyped team will continue working with Surrey FA throughout the 2020/21 season with plenty of exciting events, social media competitions and more, over the coming months.
Hyped share our goal of working to raise the profile of female football and encourage more girls to get involved in the sport from a young age.
As part of the agreement, Hyped Marketing will continue as title sponsors of our Girls County Cup competitions. They will also support our work in delivering two tournaments for 5-11-year-old girls this season.
Our partnership with Hyped Marketing developed greatly over the 2019/20 season. They helped us to live-stream cup draws, assisted by players from women and girls’ clubs in the county. After such a promising start, we were disappointed to see a sizeable chunk of the Girls’ finals cancelled following the Coronavirus outbreak and as the national lockdown approached. Lockdown saw a complete hiatus in grassroots football, with fixtures not taking place. Together, we were forced to find alternate ways to support the clubs and continue promoting girls’ football. This support took the form of content including online social media competitions and webinars to keep everyone connected, albeit from a distance.
As we settle into a new normal way of life, we are delighted that that Hyped have committed to supporting us again this season. They will continue with us to consistently promote girls’ football and offer their expertise through regular marketing training sessions for our clubs and workforce.
On the renewed sponsorship, Hyped Marketing’s Managing Director Jamie Barlow said: “It was a bit of a no-brainer for us to carry this sponsorship into a second year. It’s become more than just a sponsorship; it’s a great relationship and we’re very excited for everything to come this season. Girls’ football has a higher profile than ever. It’s really excellent to see so many young players keen to get involved.”
Sally Lockyer, CEO, Surrey FA, added, “The support from Hyped Marketing over the last 12 months has been fantastic. Despite the challenges which recent months have provided, they have helped us to deliver qualitative, innovative support for our stakeholders. We have developed strong ties between our respective organisations, and we share a passion for delivering the best possible experiences for our stakeholders. At a time where there is a great deal of instability in sport, and wider society, this level of commitment is vital for ensuring that the upward trend in female football participation continues.”
Over the next few months, we will be sharing a number of exciting projects and competitions, as well as content around the Hyped Girls County Cup competitions. Keep an eye on the Hyped and Surrey FA social media channels to make sure you don’t miss out.
