The Pitchmark Group are 'keeping it local' after securing a partnership with their resident football organisation, the Gloucestershire FA on Friday afternoon. This exciting collaboration is set to benefit football clubs and players across the region, and highlights the importance of local businesses working together to support community sports.
The Gloucestershire FA is responsible for promoting and developing football in the region, and oversees the administration of over 600 affiliated clubs and more than 2,300 teams.
With their expertise in line marking paints, seeds, fertilisers, and sporting equipment, The Pitchmark Group will provide footballers of all levels with a better playing experience while also making grounds staff's lives easier as we approach the Spring & Summer renovation season.
One of the main benefits of the partnership is that the Bristol-based company will become the preferred supplier of line marking paint and equipment for the Gloucestershire FA, ensuring that clubs have access to high-quality products and equipment that are tailored to their needs. This will not only help to improve the quality of the pitches, but also ensure that they meet safety and compliance standards.
The Pitchmark Group’s Head of Commercial Strategy commented: "As a Bristol based family company, we’re delighted to be partnering with Gloucestershire FA to support local clubs.
"Our company prides itself on building meaningful and longstanding relationships, and through this exciting partnership, we are committed to supporting the Gloucestershire FA and its member clubs to achieve better quality natural turf pitches.
"This partnership will also support the FA and Football Foundation's desire to improve 20,000 pitches nationwide in the coming years."
In addition, The Pitchmark Group will provide technical support and training to the Gloucestershire FA and its member clubs, helping to ensure that the line marking process is carried out accurately and efficiently. This will save time and resources for the clubs, allowing them to focus on other aspects of running a successful football team.
The Pitchmark Group's Regional Account Manager for South West & Midlands, Nathan Henton, will be on hand to work directly with the Gloucestershire FA and affiliate member clubs in the coming months as clubs begin to prepare for the 2023/24 pre-season schedule. Among the technical support and training options will be video CPD sessions and in-person training at a club or location of choice.
Nathan Henton Regional Account Manager at The Pitchmark Group said. “It's wonderful to see the company secure this partnership with the Gloucestershire FA.
"I’m here to support local clubs and the County FA, whether it be questions about line marking, seed, fertiliser, or our range of Harrod Sport products. Get in touch! I’m here to help."
In celebration of the launch of this exciting partnership, The Pitchmark Group is running a limited-time offer on its Elements 6:1 Concentrate Line Marking Paint.
