SPARTANS Football Club is delighted to announce that Spartans FC Women’s team have agreed a new two-year training and match-day kit partnership with leading personal injury solicitors, Friends Legal.
Players Michaela McAlonie and Elena Santoyo-Brown joined Friends Legal Managing Partner Tony O’Malley to launch our new Macron match-day kit at The Spartans Community Football Academy, ahead of the opening SWPL away fixture against Hibernian Ladies at Ainslie Park Stadium on Sunday afternoon (KO: 1pm).
The new sponsorship deal carries forward from Friends Legal’s previous two year agreement to be the SWPL’s team main sponsor. Additionally Friends Legal have committed to providing further investment to the women’s team by providing all SWPL players with specifically tailored strength and conditioning input/sessions on a weekly basis.
