Foundation becomes Town shirt sponsor!

We have become the official charity partner of Crawley Town Football Club !

We at the Foundation are delighted, and very proud, to be appearing on the front of the team's shirts for the start of the '23-'24 season

Crawley Town Football Club have confirmed that the Foundation is the club’s Official Charity Partner ahead of the 2023/24 season. As part of this agreement, the Foundation will be appearing on the front of players match shirts as we kick off our Sky Bet League 2 campaign this Saturday.

As part of the agreement, the Club and Foundation will be working closer than ever before to provide enhanced exposure and support to a variety of the Foundations existing programmes and initiatives. In addition to this, the Club and Foundation will also be donating shirt sponsorship to a further two charities throughout the season - the maximum permitted by the EFL - as well as commercial partners and businesses to be announced over the course of the season.

The Foundation delivers a wide range of community-based provision within the Crawley and seeks to use the brand of Club and the power of sport and activity to support those who access its programmes, regardless of age, ability and background.

With programmes ranging from dementia support, social inclusion, 16-19 education, schools’ programmes, mental health & wellbeing programmes, tackling loneliness & isolation schemes and women’s & girls’ football, the Foundation continues to work towards developing and supporting the needs of the local community.

Darren Ford, Head of the Crawley Town Community Foundation said: “I am delighted the Foundation has been selected as the clubs’ Official Charity Partner and to have the Foundation across the front of the shirt is amazing. This highlights the ever-growing partnership with the Club and is a testament to the work the Foundation staff delivers throughout the town.

The Foundation is proud of its work within the community, and we have many positive stories to share. Now we are on the front of the shirt, we hope this will raise the profile of the Foundation and our participants can identify with the shirt, as it is them along with the staff who make the Foundation what it is today.

I am grateful to the Club for providing this opportunity, as it is something both myself and Tom (Allman) have discussed in the past but didn’t think it would come off - it is something we can all be proud of.”

General Manager Tom Allman said: “I’m really pleased to have further enhanced our relationship with the Foundation going into next season. The club and the Foundation have a fantastic working relationship, and by having their logo on the front of the players match shirts for the start of the season is a great way to cement this going forwards, whilst also shining a light on the fantastic work they do in the Crawley community. We will be announcing a further two charities who will be occupying the front of the shirt over the course of the season, as well as other commercial partners.”

Owing to the dynamic nature of next season’s front of shirt, retail shirts will be available to purchase without front of shirt sponsorship. Any fans wishing to purchase a sponsorship decal to go on the front of shirt can do so for an additional £5 of which 30% will go directly to the Community Foundation.

The Reds home, away and third shirts will be revealed in full this Friday 4th August, with the home shirt being available to purchase instore from 10am on Saturday 5th August. Online sales will be available in the following week along with a pre order for the away and third shirt.
