Surrey Football Association and THORPE PARK Resort are excited to announce that the UK’s most thrilling theme park will partner with the County FA to signify their support for youth football in Surrey.
The new three-year partnership has been agreed upon following positive talks between both organisations, indicating shared values when supporting young people in football at a grassroots level.
The partnership will see Thorpe Park sponsor and receive naming rights to all 12 of Surrey FA’s boys and girls Youth County Cups, where ages range from under 12’s up to under 18’s. The Thorpe Park Youth Cups will welcome all 24 teams participating in this year’s finals to Meadowbank Football Ground from mid-April, with unique activations to feature as part of the new sponsorship for the competitions.
Significantly, the Official Leisure Partner emphasized their support for parity across the male and female game following last summer’s historical women’s euros competition and will be supporting key initiatives taken by Surrey FA to work towards this.
The agreement will also provide discounted tickets to the theme park for the Surrey FA network and see Surrey FA host several initiatives on-site at Thorpe Park during their open season. This opportunity will allow Surrey FA to engage with and add to the Thorpe Park guest experience through football activations at the venue.
Speaking on the announcement, Surrey FA Chief Executive Officer, Sally Lockyer, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome Thorpe Park as our Official Leisure Partner and look forward to building our relationship over the coming months. Thorpe Park Resort delivers memorable experiences and early on, it was clear that our partnership offers a unique fit and compelling brand synergy. We’re excited to take experiential football opportunities to Thorpe Park guests and to see our Thorpe Park Surrey Youth Cups delivered alongside this instantly recognisable brand.”
Ruth Storey, Marketing Director at Thorpe Park Resort added:
“Thorpe Park Resort is delighted to be working alongside Surrey FA as their Official Leisure Partner. We’re always on the lookout for new experiences and partners that fit our brand and we’re really thrilled to kick off an exciting three years ahead with Surrey FA and their fantastic network of footballers! With our theme park gates now open for 2023, we hope to welcome as many footballers and their families to our Resort to create even more memorable moments as they twist, sweep, soar and laugh out loud on some of Europe’s most thrilling coasters while enjoying a whole season of unmissable events with us too!”
The first Thorpe Park Youth County Cup finals are due to take place on April 19th at Meadowbank Football Ground. As part of the partnership, all Surrey FA members can enjoy up to 20% off tickets to THORPE PARK Resort, as well as an introductory offer where all members can get 25% off any date until 2nd May.
