The food-delivery company first launched the Deliveroo Gift of Kit campaign last year with huge success, bringing much needed support to over 28,000 grassroots football players. This year, Deliveroo is relaunching the campaign exclusively for womens' and girls' teams, who are considered most at risk of being hit the hardest throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
The new commitment from Deliveroo follows Monday's announcement of the FA's new four-year strategy, focused on Inspiring Positive Change in women's and girls' football. As an official partner of the Lionesses, Deliveroo shares the FA's ambition to create a sustainable future for women's and girls' football, and is proud to continue to support amateur teams across the UK.
Caroline Harris, Marketing Director UKI for Deliveroo said, 'We are committed to supporting the local communities that we are part of, and are grateful to have this opportunity to help local grassroots teams most in need, and get them back on their feet.'
