Roman Coaches get partnership underway.
The local company, who also sponsor the North Stand at the Weston Homes Community Stadium and offer great priced travel to away games, were keen to help the U's community scheme and have been pleased to see so many youngsters involved this week.
This week has seen the first Soccer Camp of the summer and is the first major event supported by our Football In The Community sponsors Roman Coaches.
With the summer holidays now underway, Colchester United's Football in the Community programme is busy delivering courses across the local area to youngsters of all ages.
John Moss from Roman Coaches said: "Out of all of the sponsorships and involvement we have with the club, we are especially proud and honoured to sponsor the Football in the Community and to play our part in developing the fans and players of the future.
"Having being involved as sponsors for the past two years, we are committed to a long term partnership with Colchester United and see the Football In The Community scheme as a fantastic opportunity to be involved from the grass roots through to the U's first team players."
Colchester United Football in the Community programme has had huge growth in its three years to date and now delivers 385 hours of provision a week to over 6,500 participants, using the power of sport to improve people’s lives.
The School Sports Programme now works with 65 local schools a week and the U's now run the very successful Shrub End Community & Sports Centre.
With Roman Coaches now confirmed as the main sponsor of the Football in the Community Scheme, we are now also looking for Associate Sponsors, with packages available for just £1,000 +VAT.
Included in this package is:-
- Perimeter board on one of the 5 a-side pitches at the WHCS
- Logo on FITC pages in every match day programme
- 20 x U14s match tickets to distribute to a school or club of your choice (PR to be arranged by CUFC)
