Surrey to begin the search for major principal sponsor for multi-year deal

With work continuing to ensure the delivery of Surrey’s May fixtures and other friendlies as well as the debut of the first Surrey women’s team, one eye remains on longer-term sustainability and expansion, that is why we’re announcing details for our plans to confirm our search for a principal sponsor to support the next stage of growth for the Surrey Men’s Football Team.

This sponsorship would not initially be extended to the International Surrey Football Senior Women’s Football team for the foreseeable future as it is hoped and intended that an environment to expand our new sponsorship, to be announced soon, is available.

It is intended that the sponsorship would run from the earliest opportunity in 2020, although some aspects may not be implemented until January 1st 2021 and would run until a minimum end date of December 31st 2022, although a sponsor will be given the first opportunity to refuse or negotiate an extension of the sponsorship period at their own discretion although International Surrey Football may continue to use certain aspects of the agreement such as kit beyond this deadline if no extension is agreed while a new sponsor is sought.
