Granada F.C. is inviting local businesses in the community to get involved in its ambitious development plans for 2022, which include the launch of its ‘Football for All’ initiative for children with additional needs.
“The Covid-19 pandemic showed beyond doubt the value that social and sporting engagement holds for our young people, through its absence. As we begin to emerge from this period, Granada F.C. is redoubling its efforts to provide a sporting outlet, with all of the positive social benefits that this entails, to all our young members, girls and boys, and to new members, too,” said Granada F.C. Chairman, Ciaran Kane, at the launch of the Community Business Partnership programme at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Booterstown.
“In the coming year, we will launch a ‘Football for All’ initiative for children with additional needs, breaking down barriers and providing more children in the community with access to football,” said Ciaran.
Granada F.C., which now has more than 1,000 young people playing for the club, was the first football club in Ireland to introduce a kit made from 100% recycled materials. It wants to further embed its environmentally aware culture across the local community.
‘Community, sustainability and inclusion’
“Community, sustainability and inclusion are at the core of our values system,” says Paddy Cranfield, Commercial Director.
“We want to welcome more young people into our football family, where they’ll challenge themselves in competitive leagues, develop new skillsets and above all join a club that instils worthy values in its young players,” said Paddy.
Granada F.C. has prepared a busy sponsorship activation programme, designed to ensure partners get maximum value for their contribution, by showcasing their brand, products and services among 3,000 people directly associated with the club across the football calendar.
“We’d be delighted to speak to small and medium-sized companies in the locality, which share our values and would like to be part of the further development of our club and the community we serve,” said Paddy.
