Why sponsor Garforth Villa Football Club?
The club is a vibrant part of the community with more than 300 players aged from 5 – 17 training and playing regularly for our club. We have strong engagement with players parents and families, so we effectively reach out to a community of several hundred across Garforth and the surrounding area.
Garforth Villa Football Club are a grassroots club that have made incredible strides forward in recent years increasing the size of the playing membership, improving pitches and working hand in hand with Leeds City Council and the FA to provide a safe, effective and engaged environment for the youth of the community to engage in the sport of football at a variety of levels. The club is run by a team of volunteer coaches and committee members who all hold appropriate professional, sporting and safeguarding qualifications but give up their time on an entirely voluntary basis. The club minimises the membership fees charged per player by raising funds through partnerships with sponsors and by holding a number of fundraising events through the year.
Sponsoring Garforth Villa Football Club is a fantastic way of contributing and supporting sport for kids in our community and makes a visible difference as every penny of sponsor money is reinvested in football equipment and facilities for the club. There are no hidden administration charges or costs, we are truly a grassroots club so we can assure a sponsor that their contribution is going directly to youth football. The Garforth Villa community of players and their families is extremely loyal and is always appreciative of the club and its sponsors and supporters.
