Burghfield FC have agreed a new sponsorship with housing developers Vistry, allowing funds to continue toward a new clubhouse.

The Fielders have agreed a £900 kit sponsorship with Vistry Thames Valley, part of the Vistry Group, which includes Linden Homes, Bovis Homes and Vistry Partnerships.

The agreement will see the under 13s wearing a brand-new strip displaying the Vistry Group logo throughout the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons. It extends the partnership between Vistry and the club to four years, as the company also sponsored the team’s kit for the previous two seasons.

Burghfield FC are a non-profit organisation founded in 1989 that now boasts over 40 teams, starting from under fours. They also introduced its first all-women’s team last year and is looking to introduce a second side next season.

Sponsorship Officer for Burghfield FC, James Kelly, said: “Vistry’s support has been incredibly helpful. Because of them we are able to keep our membership costs down and make football accessible for our members. All of us at Burghfield Football Club are very grateful - we really couldn’t do it without them.

"We are currently saving for our own clubhouse as we currently have to use local schools and other pitches in the area. Vistry’s support means we can put the funds from membership fees towards saving for our own facility instead of providing kits.

“I have no doubt I speak for the whole age group when I say that we look forward to working very closely with Vistry again next season and I know our players will wear the Vistry branded kits with pride.”

Marketing Manager for Vistry Thames Valley, Alex Laflin, added: "We have enjoyed working with Burghfield Football club for the past three years and are pleased to be continuing our relationship into the 2022-23 season.

“We are proud to be associated with the club and wish the under 13s team every success for the future.”
