Kent FA Announce Historic Sponsorship Agreement
Fri 1st Aug 2014 | Football Sponsorship
Kent Reliance, part of OneSavings Bank plc has been unveiled as the new sponsor for the Kent FA’s prestigious Senior Cup competition for the 2014-15season.
The Kent Reliance Senior Cup, which celebrated its 125th year as the headline Kent County Cup last season, will be contested by teams within the Football Conference and Ryman Isthmian Football League, as well as Football League sides Charlton Athletic and Gillingham FC.
Announcing the deal alongside Steve Brown, Manager of current Kent Senior Cup holders, Ebbsfleet United and Cup winner Daryl McMahon, Paul Dolan, Chief Executive of the Kent FA, explained the significance of the historic sponsorship announcement; “Our 20 County Cup competitions play an integral role in our engagement with clubs in Kent.
“We work with several sponsors and partners to develop methods to support the football community and ensure we lead the way in creating competitions that uphold the highest standards.
“This was demonstrated last season when we celebrated 125 years of the Kent Senior Cup at the home of Gillingham FC and welcomed one of our largest crowds to the final in recent history.”
“I’m delighted Kent Reliance will continue their work with us to support grassroots football as well as become headline sponsors of the Kent Reliance Senior Cup.
“People’s perception of Kent FA often revolves around rules and regulation but our work around developing commercial opportunities that provide a return for our clubs is fundamental. Today is a historic day and we look forward to seeing the competition unfold.”
Andy Golding, Chief Executive at Kent Reliance, commented: “The Kent Senior Cup has played a fundamental part within the landscape of Kent football for well over 100 years. Not too many football competitions can boast of such a prestigious past.
“By working with the Kent FA to support the competition, we hope to help push the Kent Reliance Senior Cup forwards as it has such a positive impact for the county.
“We very much look forward to celebrating the successes of Kent’s football teams over the coming months.”
