New Title Sponsor announced for the Northwest Football Awards 2020 as Player of the Season nominations and date for this year’s ceremony are revealed

We are delighted to announce a brand-new title sponsor for the 2020 Northwest Football Awards.  Pitching In is an initiative recently launched by Ladbrokes owner, GVC Holdings, which demonstrates their growing commitment to supporting grassroots sport across the UK.

PR Director of Ladbrokes, Simon Clare, said, “Pitching In is a really exciting new programme of investment of money and resources to support and promote grassroots sports, and to help promote this cause, we are delighted to be sponsoring the Pitching In Northwest Football Awards 2020. Our first major Pitching In project is the partnership with the Trident Leagues – the Isthmian League, the Northern Premier League and the Southern League – so we have hit the ground running in our support of grassroots football”.

Laura Wolfe of the Pitching In Northwest Football Awards said, “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Ladbrokes through Pitching In.  We find ourselves in unprecedented times and grassroots sport is more important to our communities than ever.  The initiative is hugely impressive and we are looking forward to working together to make a real difference to Northwest’s grassroots football, alongside our wider professional football family.”

The Pitching In Northwest Football Awards (NWFA) celebrates the region’s footballing elite and pays tribute to those who have achieved footballing excellence both on and off the field in the 2019/20 season. The new partnership coincides with the announcement of nominations for the Player of the Season categories for this year’s Awards and voting is open NOW!

Laura Wolfe said: “The 2020 Awards will be unlike any other – we are living in strange times and the Awards will of course recognise that.  It is certainly nice to have something to celebrate and we look forward to crowning the winners on Monday, 9th November.

“We are also delighted to welcome a new digital media partner on board for the first time, The Athletic, who will be sponsoring The Athletic Rising Star and The Athletic Women’s Rising Star categories, celebrating the best in young footballing talent across the region.”
