Wessex Proud to Support Football Club

Local insurance and financial services provider, NFU Mutual Wessex, is pleased to announce its new sponsorship of the Salisbury Football Club starting in October 2021. 

With offices in Salisbury and Wareham, NFU Mutual Wessex is delighted to sponsor this local club. Their sponsorship of SFC will help towards the day-to-day upkeep of our local football club.  

SFC is the premier non-league football club in Wiltshire and the biggest sports club north of Southampton and Bournemouth and south of Swindon, and as such have a large catchment area of supporters. It is a well-supported community club that is vital to many local residents and an enthusiastic wider audience via their online portals. Home attendance averages around 800 for league matches, 300-400 at friendlies and others.  

Salisbury FC Commercial Director, Ian Pearson, said: “The support of companies like NFU Mutual Wessex is imperative to our football club. We’re an important community hub that means so much to so many local residents. To have partners that are locally based and understand our region and the people is essential. Non-league football is different to what you watch on TV. It’s just as entertaining but you’re able to move around the ground and chat to supporters of both teams taking part in any fixture. This social element at an affordable price is more important now than ever. With organisations like NFU Mutual Wessex by our side, and great supporters attending games, we can continue our essential role within the Salisbury community.” 

Agent at NFU Mutual Wessex, Simon Hedges, said: “NFU Mutual Wessex is delighted to sponsor Salisbury Football Club, and engage with their loyal fanbase at matches throughout the season. The fact that the club is so well supported by local residents makes it a perfect match for NFU Mutual Wessex who are a keen supporter of our local community.”
