Easy and secure transportation of your kit

With the English Premier League and the Championship being amongst the top 5 supported leagues in Europe (in terms of supporter numbers at games), plus TV audiences around the world being counted in the millions, the popularity of the English game has never been stronger.

With such global visibility, it is absolutely crucial that all aspects of clubs presentation is taken of care of – right down to the kit skips (that are often even filmed being taken off the team coach)!

In addition, the UK is also home to a wide number of professional sports leagues that are the envy of the world. Rugby, both Union and League, are watched by large numbers of viewers, as are the lower divisions of the Football League and county cricket teams.

Add in the continued legacy of the Olympics in London and you have a number of other sports steadily growing in popularity, including athletics, hockey, basketball, team cycling and many more.

When you also consider pan European competitions (the Champions League, Europa League, Heineken Cup etc) and International competition, it is clear that the potential for any club to benefit from the use of travel skips is tremendous.

08: Case Studies.

Walking Football Sponsorship

Recently famed by the Barclays TV advert, Walking Football is a new pastime actively encouraging people aged over 50 to continue playing football.

One of the first over 50s Walking Football clubs was established in Hampshire 6 years ago, and in this time the sport has become increasingly popular amongst senior people who may have mobility problems.

There are now over 220 registered clubs all over the UK. Walking Football offers these individuals an alternative way to keep active whilst also getting older people to enjoy physical exercise.

Walking Football is a slower, more practical version of football where any player caught running grants a free kick to the opposition, creating a fun, non-contact sport.

The club was designed to tackle inactivity and social isolation whilst providing an opportunity to interact with other like-minded individuals.

How GWP Protective helped

In April 2015, Farnborough’s over 50’s Walking Football club embarked on the first ever international Walking Football tournament to Portugal.

Sponsored by the international tax and wealth management company Blevins Franks, teams from Farnborough, Hampshire and the Soccor Olhanense Strollers (SOS) joined in the over 50’s tournament at Olhao.

GWP Protective supported the Farnborough Walking Football team by supplying them with specialist Zarges aluminium kit skips to transport vital kit and medical equipment on this tour.

Used to store the teams’ kit, physio bags, defibrillators, crutches, Cryocuffs and club footballs, it was also suitable for air freight and lockable to ensure that all items were kept safe too.
