Icon Sports appointed official supplier to Rochdale AFC Community Trust

Date published: 16 March 2021

Rochdale-based Icon Sports has been appointed the official football supplier to all of Rochdale AFC Community Trust's teams and programmes for the 2021/22 season.

The international sports brand has partnered with both Rochdale AFC and the club's charity in the past, providing shop merchandise and washable face masks as well as equipment and custom printed clothing.

Icon's latest addition to their impressive portfolio is a range of footballs which, after vigorous testing, will now become the official ball of choice for Rochdale AFC Community Trust's teams/programmes.

Will Purser, Director of Icon Sports UK, said: “Our new range of footballs is aimed at bringing quality footballs at an affordable price to the UK market.

“We have a range of products that are suitable for every team, from grassroots training balls to elite level match balls, all comparable with much more expensive products on the market.

“We have built a reputation for service and quality in team wear as well as with cricket equipment and apparel and we know we can be as successful with our range of footballs.”

As well as the charity using the range of balls across their teams and programmes, the partnership will see grassroots teams in the Rochdale and surrounding areas connected to RAFCiTC receive a 30% discount on all football purchases, with the charity also receiving £1 for every ball sold.

Ryan Bradley, Community Director for Rochdale AFC Community Trust, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to form an official partnership with our suppliers, helping us to raise funds to support our charitable work.

“The footballs are excellent quality across the range and our players, participants and the wider community will all benefit from this partnership.”

30% discount offered to any individual/club connected to RAFCiTC and RAFCiTC to receive £1.00 per ball in commission on every ball sold through web site using this code (individual balls, not bundle deals).
