Our colleagues at Imageco are massive sports fans. M-a-s-s-i-v-e. But that doesn’t just mean we love a pint at the pub while watching a game of footy (even though we do)!
We also understand that local sporting initiatives (clubs, awards and more) are essential to building strong communities and exciting opportunities for adults and kids alike. We also know it’s important for us to put our money where our mouths are, so following our sponsorship of the 14th and 15th Leeds Sports Awards, we’re sponsoring a local football club, the Garforth Rangers Under-14s!
The Garforth Rangers Under-14s are a football club close to our hearts at Imageco—one of their incredible players is the son of our director, Nathan!
After being with the club for six years, their coach has seen the players’ individual potential to grow. As well as our kit sponsorship, our additional sponsorships will allow the team to travel abroad and take part in their first overseas football tour. This opportunity will see the kids play against new opposition and put their amazing talents to the test, and we can’t wait to hear how they do!
For the Leeds Sports Awards, hosted by our great friends Banana Kick, we’ve been a sponsor of the previous two years’ awards and handled the event’s sports branding. The next brilliant awards evening is scheduled to take place on Thursday 28 February 2019.
The awards are an incredible celebration of local talent in sporting activities in the area, including global Leeds stars such as Josh Warrington and Hannah Cockroft while also recognising smaller sporting clubs. Don’t worry, you can still get tickets here.
Sponsoring and supporting local sports clubs and events is important to us at Imageco. Coaches and players devote countless hours to training and excelling their sporting skills while promoting exercise, fitness and social engagement among communities (in a time where it’s easy to get stuck in front of a games console!).
We’re proud to contribute to the longevity and success of local sporting initiatives.
