Uneven pitches, getting the team together and overcoming the British weather, it can only be Sunday league sport!
Now The Friary on Victoria Street in Grimsby is getting behind a nationwide campaign to give away new match kit to local Sunday league sports sides.
The grassroots campaign, organised by Green Card – a free money-saving app for sports fans saving them 20% off food and drink at local pubs during major televised matches – aims to gain the support of local Sunday sports teams supporters who can nominate their club, whilst saving sports fans money all season long.
Whatever the sport, whether its football, rugby, cricket, running, hockey, darts or any other accredited Sunday-playing local sporting team can be nominated by their supporters to win new team kit, plus an end of season celebration at their local pub. To get involved sports fans in Grimsby need to download the free Green Card app via the iStore or Google Play and select the link to the Facebook page where they will be able to nominate their local team, anytime up until the final whistle on 31st January 2016.
Mark Attwood, General Manager at The Friary said:
For years, we’ve been showing live football matches at our pubs, but what about the games that really matter to our locals? Almost every professional sportsman started their career playing for their local club, and with literally hundreds of games taking place every Sunday across Grimsby at all levels and in all sports, we want to give something back at grassroots level to the local clubs and people that make it all possible.
Whether you’re a budding young talent, supportive parent, or simply love playing with your mates, Sunday League sport is where the real magic happens. So make sure you get your teammates, supporters, friends and family behind your team to increase your chance of winning. What’s more, as you’ll be a Green Card user, you and your team can save money all season long. It’s a win-win.
