Durham Women FC are delighted to confirm a new partnership with the Plastic Furniture Company.
The North East firm will become the club’s official sleeve sponsor for the 2021/22 FA Women’s Championship season – with their logos proudly displayed on our first-team home shirts throughout the campaign.
Based in Gateshead, the Plastic Furniture Company have become industry leaders in supplying sustainable and long-lasting outdoor furniture for a variety of industries.
All their products are produced right here in the North East and shipped across the country to a number of high-profile customers.
With a focus on sustainability, the company are major users of waste plastic and ensure that the plastic recycled by the general public is put to good use in creating a range of products – from benches to bins and planters to storage units.
Their products carry a ten-year guarantee and last far longer than traditional timber furniture, while they also produce a range of 100% recycled products which they supply to schools, sports clubs and a host of businesses.
And now the firm will be working alongside Durham Women in the 2021/22 season – to help encourage the public to keep recycling, so that further steps in reusing waste plastic can be taken by the industry.
Commenting on the new partnership, Plastic Furniture Company owner Patrick Connolly said: “I’m delighted to be able to help the club – and hopefully this is just the start of a bigger relationship.
“My daughter’s played football going back ten years, and it’s wonderful to see Durham doing so well as an independent club.
“They had such a good season last year and hopefully they can have an even better one this season.”
Durham Women manager Lee Sanders added: “As a club, it’s really humbling to have companies come to us and show a real interest in what we’re doing and how the club has grown over the years – and who really show a keen interest in wanting to get involved with us.
“Patrick, his family and his businesses have done that and we’re really looking forward to how we can work with the Plastic Furniture Company this season, and how we can hopefully build on that moving forward.
“They have shown a real keen interest in female sport and particularly football and as the profile and interest in the game grows, companies like the Plastic Furniture Company will play a huge part in that growth.”
