NFU Mutual Wessex teams up with Salisbury Football Club in new sponsorship deal

By Nick Batten on 8 December, 2021

Local insurance and financial services provider, NFU Mutual Wessex, has announced its new sponsorship of Salisbury Football Club (as of October 2021).

With offices in Salisbury and Wareham, NFU Mutual Wessex’s sponsorship of SFC will help towards the day-to-day upkeep of the 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 has 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. 

Ian Pearson, Salisbury FC Commercial Director, 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.” 

Simon Hedges, Agent at NFU Mutual Wessex, added, “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 which is a keen supporter of our local community.”
