Crown sponsors England Amputee Football Association
Crown has announced a partnership agreement with the England Amputee Football Association’s (EAFA) Junior Teams.
The metal packaging company supported the EAFA’s Junior Great Britain team in the sport’s first ever European junior training camp, which took place in March. More than 40 children aged between six and sixteen, from Poland, England, Italy, Netherlands and Ireland, came together for three days of amputee football training from the EAFA’s qualified coaches.
Owen Coyle, Great Britain development head coach and first team coach, commented: “Crown has proved an invaluable partner by providing support and helping us achieve a positive and successful event. We are constantly looking to grow and to inspire, and it is through the help of our partners, like Crown, that we can contribute to provide any person with an amputation, congenital deficiency or other limb affecting disorder the opportunity to access amputee football at the grassroots, club and national levels.”
Matt Twiss, marketing and business development director at Crown, added: “We are delighted to be supporting such a wonderful charity and it’s great to be involved with the fantastic people at EAFA. Sport is one of life’s great equalizers, connecting people of all ages, backgrounds and ability, and when we heard of the fantastic work the EAFA is doing, we jumped at the chance to provide support to a charity that makes a big difference in so many people’s lives.”
