A North West based housing association has extended its sponsorship agreement with a non-league football club.
Regenda Homes, which owns, maintains and manages over 14,000 properties, will continue to be the main sponsor of City of Liverpool FC (COLFC) for another two seasons. Regenda Homes has appeared on the front of the club’s shirts since it was established over three years ago.
The announcement is the perfect start to the second half of the season for City of Liverpool FC, who are chasing promotion and currently sit top of the Hallmark Security Football League Premiership.
Since the start of the long-standing partnership, staff from the two organisations have tirelessly worked together to support several community and fundraising initiatives during the season, including local foodbanks, domestic abuse charity - Centre 56 - and national mental health awareness charity, Chasing the Stigma.
Paul Manning, City of Liverpool FC Chairman, said " We are delighted to be able to continue working with Regenda Homes for another two years. The support we have had has been superb.
“As a volunteer led organisation, time and money are the two most valuable commodities and having support from an organisation like Regenda Homes allows us to move the club forward, both in the football sense and in the work of COLFC in the Community.
“We simply could not have asked for better partners!"
Michael Birkett, CEO at the Regenda Group, said: “I am absolutely delighted to extend our sponsorship of City of Liverpool FC.
“The partnership is built on shared values and the role that organisations like us play in helping our local communities. For many people, Premier League football is unaffordable, but City of Liverpool Football Club ensure that football continues to be accessible for all, including families with children.
“We have enjoyed working closely with the club, its staff, volunteers and supporters and we look forward to continuing this for the next two years and playing our part in the clubs footballing success too.”
