Crawley Wasps are delighted to welcome Crawley Carpet Warehouse to the growing number of local firms backing the town’s top women’s football club.
The Charlwood Road-based company has agreed to be a sponsor of the Ladies first team at the start of their first season in the FA Women’s National League.
The firm’s logo featured on Wasps players’ shirt sleeves for the first time on Sunday (September 2) in an 8-0 win over Ipswich Town in the League Cup.
And all those attending the home game with AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday (September 12), at Oakwood FC’s Tinsley Lane ground, will receive an exclusive 10% discount off their next purchase from Crawley Carpet Warehouse.
They add to existing main-club sponsor Thales and fellow first-team sponsor Bunaken Oasis, while Cottesmore Hotel, Golf & Country Club remain a partner as they rebuild following a fire.
Crawley Carpet Warehouse – which also serves East Grinstead, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Dorking, Redhill, Reigate and Horley – supplies and fits carpets, laminate & engineered wood, Karndean, Amtico, carpet tiles and all types of commercial flooring.
Phill Russell, from Crawley Carpet Warehouse, said: “Our team at CCW are so excited and proud to be associated with Wasps. Having watched them last Sunday win very comprehensively against Ipswich, we are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”
Paul Walker, Wasps’ chairman and first-team manager, said: “It was a delight to host Phill, Mick and the team from Crawley Carpet Warehouse at our game against Ipswich and enthuse them with a first-class performance.
“Our ambition is to have a side at the very top of the women’s game, which the town of Crawley can get behind, and to create excellent player pathways for ambitious young footballers.
“So as the women’s game continues to grow and develop as a professional sport, it’s vital we secure additional sponsorship from more local businesses.”
