Alexforbes Offshore aims to make a community impact by announcing their sponsorship of the Jersey Walking Football World Cup Team. As kit sponsors, the Alexforbes logo will appear on the squad strips, training gear and tracksuits.
The Jersey squad will be making their debut at the inaugural FIWFA* Walking Football World Nations Cup, taking place from 24 to 26 August 2023 at the home of English Football, St George’s Park.
Alexforbes is also supporting one of its team members, Wealth Adviser, Paul Lennon, who has been selected to play in the team.
David Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer of the Jersey Football Association said, ‘We’re delighted to be entering into this arrangement with Alexforbes Offshore. Walking Football in Jersey has progressed significantly since we started in 2020 and the team’s selection for the World Cup is testament to that hard work and commitment.’
The team will play in Group B Over-50’s, where they will compete against Japan, Singapore, Italy, Georgia, The Caribbean, Nigeria and Basque Country.
Adrian Peacock, Managing Director of Alexforbes Offshore, said, ‘This Walking Football Squad shows that your passion for sport doesn’t need to stop when you reach a certain age. As a business our focus is very much on wellbeing throughout life. We want to provide the financial planning advice and services that enable people to live their lives to the full. We wish the team the best of luck and will be incredibly proud to see our name alongside Jersey on their shirts throughout the tournament.’
