South Challenge Region Cup announces new sponsor partners

 

Teams in the East of Scotland, South of Scotland, West of Scotland & Scottish Lowland Leagues are gaining financial support through five new sponsorship partners for the 2021-22 Cup.

With the fifth round underway, the South Challenge Region Cup announced brilliant news. The Cup, and its teams, will benefit from five huge sponsorships from Scottish based companies. With the past year being financially challenging for the South Challenge Region Cup and the teams, the new cash from these key sponsors will help further fortify Scottish Non-League football.

Richard Osborne, the Cup Competition Secretary, had this to say in response to the newfound relationships with new, leading Scottish businesses:”It was a pleasure to arrange sponsors from Scottish, grass-roots companies for the cup this year”, said Osbourne.”It is an honour to accept their sponsorship, and their support for the cup as well as all its teams is greatly appreciated.”

The South Challenge Cup is now in its 15th season, and this newest season has seen an expansion of the teams competing; 20 New teams have joined from both the East of Scotland Football League and the West of Scotland Football League. This brings the total number of competing teams up to a staggering figure of 162.

Trade Radiators was the first company to step up and offer their support in leading the way for funding non league Scottish football. Nic Auckland, the man behind the heating supply giant, said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Cup and to show our commitment to local football. “Sport brings people together from all backgrounds and abilities and is a vital part of our national heritage.”

This first sponsorship was quickly reinforced by funding from Glasgow-based digital marketing agency, Boyd Digital. The agency’s managing director Grant Ruxton, a huge fan of football, elaborated on their support of the Cup: “We are delighted to offer our sponsorship to the Cup. It is brilliant to see more teams than ever before joining in. I think it is going to be an exciting year for the cup and all the teams involved.”

Looking back at the previous seasons, it looks like these new teams may have their work cut out. Past champions such as Dunipace, East Kilbride FC, and Civil Service Strollers are all out to clinch another win. However, it seems the prospects of a sensational 2022-23 season has inspired more companies to provide their support.

A custom clothing company from Ardrossan, Club Snoods, have also offered their support to the Cup. The company is dedicated to supporting not just the fans – with custom football snoods – but the non league teams.

After gaining traction from a host of sponsors so far, another huge sponsor came through for the South Region Challenge Cup in the form of Edinburgh company JB Contract Joiners. They’re a hard-working group of tradespeople who are known for their friendliness and expertise, not to mention their involvement in community efforts.

The final sponsor to join in and help fund this season’s South Region Challenge Cup was Masterplan Business Solutions. The bookkeeping firm from Stevenson now not only focuses on helping Scottish businesses but also non league football.

With the sponsors lined up and their additional funding secured for the current edition of the Cup, all that’s left to do is look forward to the matches still to kick off:

  • Jeanfield Swifts VS Darvel (12th March 14:30)
  • Linlithgow Rose VS Sauchie Juniors (22nd March, 19:45)
  • Bo’Ness United VS Petershill (23rd March, 19:45)

 

The WoSFL joins the National Lottery football weekends

The West of Scotland Football League are delighted to be a part of The National Lottery Football Weekends.  If you are a National Lottery player you will be able to come and watch a WoSFL Premier Division match with a friend and get one of the tickets for free.

As fans, you know full well how damaging the pandemic has been to clubs in leagues like ours. With a halt in the football calendar and no gate revenue there were serious fears about the future of many clubs. Thankfully National Lottery players stepped in to protect many local football clubs, providing £12.5million of support to clubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

As thanks for the essential support, 231 clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are now taking part in The National Lottery Football Weekends.  Each club will, for one home fixture in March or April, run a special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer for National Lottery players to take someone – potentially for the very first time – to a game.

Speaking about the National Lottery Football weekend league Chair Matt Bamford said –

“National Lottery players play a vital role in supporting our national game, but especially at non-league and grassroots level. The West of Scotland Football League prides itself on having clubs that are closely connected with the local community, and it is thanks to the emergency funding, that ensured their survival, that we are able to continue delivering the projects that make a real difference to their fans and the wider community.

We look forward to welcoming as many fans as possible to our National Lottery football weekend. Why not come and see your first match in the West of Scotland Football League and see how amazing local football is”.

Details on how to claim your free ticket and when will be coming soon so keep your eyes on our Social Media platforms and Website
