Since launching its Club Support Scheme six months ago, AFD is proud to announce that it has now helped clubs and schools generate £60,000 towards American Football programs in England.

Since AFD started the Club Support Service in January this year, the company has helped clubs in a variety of ways from helping secure funding or providing marketing support, while also delivering coaching and education workshops.

Gur Samuel, Managing Director for AFD Limited was delighted in how far the Club Support program had come in such a short time: “We know that there is huge potential and demand for growth in our sport, but making that happen can take time, money and expertise.

Our Club Support Scheme has helped give teams across the UK that chance to grow their organisations when they may not have had the time to as they are already juggling running a club, working and having coaching, playing or officiating roles. I’m delighted we’ve been able to take teams through the process and secured them much needed funds.”

One such team that has benefited from the scheme is Kent Phoenix. Lee Parsons, Club Chairperson comments: “The support AFD have provided has given us the opportunity to have a solid foundation to our club.

The expertise and advice over the bid writing and process, the support in coaching and working with schools and helping us achieve support within the local county sports partnership has been invaluable.

We would recommend any team to give AFD a call if you’re looking at getting club investment.”

In addition to helping with community clubs, AFD have also overseen the awarding of a grant for a school to start its first American Football program, while a university will have its first ever American Football program in 2017 as they have recently won £10,000 to get the equipment to start up. AFD are happy to work with teams across the country, and as long as you can show a need for investment, they can help.
