We are delighted to announce a new partnership with locally based sportswear and nutrition supplier AthElite Sports that is set to change the game for the 2020/21 season.
The company was set up in 2018 and is run by local footballing trio Mat Liddiard (Swindon Supermarine), Harlie Price (Cheltenham Saracens) and Callum Preece (Fairford Town).
Together they provide and supply a range of socks, shinguards, tapes and nutrition supplements and packages to players from grassroots all the way into the professional game, for both men and women.
AthElite Sports enables you to make purchases for your individual needs as well as purchasing for the whole squad, with team bundles available in some of the ranges.
So, how are we going to change the game we hear you ask! Well Head of Programming at Ryan Butler has put together a short statement explaining the partnership.
We are delighted to welcome AthElite Sports as a partner going forward and it is an exciting one to have in my opinion.
When we first branched out and really attacked covering all levels in 2017 I put together the idea of a Team of the Month, made up of players Severn Sport had seen play in the month. This has since been something that everyone looks forward to every month and has seen banter shared on social media amongst players – particularly if they have performed in front of my eyes!
So the partnership sees AthElite Sports sponsoring a new Player of the Month initiative, which rewards the player that Severn Sport nominates as the best performer for that given month. It allows Harlie, Mat and Callum to offer a prize to that player and therefore enhance their brand and showcase their bundles and deals and what they can offer to local players.
Along with this Severn Sport has agreed to provide media coverage for any future AthElite Sports events, including a proposed tournament at Oxstalls in the future.
As someone who feels passionately about local football this partnership was always going to be something I jumped at as we would not only be helping a local company expand, but also helping local footballers to benefit from the services provided by AthElite Sports!
I genuinely couldn’t be anymore excited to have the guys on board with us.
AthElite Sports and Cheltenham Saracens man Harlie Price has had his say on the partnership and can explain a bit more about the reward awaiting the lucky ones throughout the season.
This partnership is one that we are delighted to be apart of. The coverage that we get as local players and clubs from all the team at Severn Sport truly is outstanding and we are lucky to have them in our region.
To be able to team up and give something back is something we are really proud of and excited for!
All three of us have been in Severn Sport’s Team of the Month and it is a special feeling, however for one lucky player there will now be a ‘Player of The Month.’
That player will receive a pair of AthElite Grip Socks, 2 rolls of sock tape, 1 roll of the foam underwrap and 3 SiS Isotonic Energy Gels to reward a fantastic month.
