Looking sharp with Sven

Just like the big Premiere League teams, Wordsley Wasps kick off the new season with a new strip – thanks to backing from Sven.

Ian Ellis, based at the factory in Kingswinford and team coach, first approached Sven with the idea for a kit sponsorship deal when constantly having to play in bibs was impacting player morale and, ultimately, performance.

An established and expanding club, Wordsley Wasps prides itself on contributing to youth football on a recreational and affordable ‘football for all’ basis. For the club, the cost and finding funding for an entire strip was proving a challenge.

Here we go, here we go!

Never known for sitting on the side-lines, Sven leapt at the chance to support the players with sponsorship for a smart and stylish strip.

According to Ian: “Watching beaming smiles spread across the kids’ faces as we unveiled their new ‘professional’ kit was a moment that I’ll never forget. And it’s astonishing the effect it’s had on how they play: they’ve really upped their game.”

Sven’s Operations Director, Patrick Rudge, said: “Working as a team and in partnership are both part of our DNA here at Sven. We’re delighted to support a local team of up-and-coming sporting talent, as well as being associated with grassroots sports.”

Team Sven looks forward to following Wordsley Wasps’ progress throughout the season.
