Steyning Town Community Football Club have announced a three-year agreement with Nike and Premier Sports.
The deal makes them one of only 125 clubs across the county to become a Nike Partner Club and will see all 16 of Steyning Town’s teams wearing a Nike kit.
Nike have also committed to invest more than £1,200 in coach development plus the right to utilise the branding.
“We are delighted to have secured a relationship with Nike,” said Carol Swain, Steyning chairman. “And the support that Nike is providing to the club will help us improve and develop our coaches for the benefit of our players and the local community.”
Sussex County FA development manager Kevin Tharme added: “We are excited that Steyning Town Community FC has been selected to become the first Nike Partner Club in Sussex to benefit from this arrangement, which is available to only a limited number of Charter Standard Community Clubs across the country.”
“Nike and their local suppliers Premier Sports and Leisure will provide kit and equipment under the programme and Sussex County FA will work with the club to identify appropriate coach education and development events for their volunteer workforce.”
