Hays is expanding its already strong relationship with City Football Group by becoming the Official Recruitment Partner of double title winning side Manchester City Women’s FC.
Manchester City Women who were crowned FA WSL and Continental Cup champions in 2016 has won more domestic trophies than any other WSL team since the League’s expansion to two leagues in 2014 and plays at the 7,000 seater stadium in the City Football Academy.
Interest in the WSL is growing at a fast rate with Manchester City Women reporting a 48% increase in WSL game attendances in 2016 and has also achieved the League’s record attendance for the last two seasons.
Hays is currently the Official Recruitment Partner of Manchester City Football Club and New York City Football Club. Expanding this relationship with the City Football Group to now include the Manchester City Women’s team is a first for Hays as it represents their first foray into women’s sports.
Hays plans to activate its partnership with one of the UK’s most exciting women’s sports teams using the club’s crest, player imagery and powerful brand messaging with a focus on producing content for digital and social media platforms, as well as match-day LED advertising and advertising in multiple domestic programmes each season.
Sholto Douglas Home, Hays Chief Marketing Officer, said: “This is a great opportunity to make our mark in elite level women’s football, a sport that is on the cusp of mainstream prominence and global recognition.
“It also enables us to further strengthen our relationship with City Football Group and support their vision and ambition in making the Club one of the world’s top women’s sports teams.
“We very much look forward to helping them accomplish their goals on and off the pitch, and are excited to be coming up with innovative ways of activating the partnership globally.”
