SYNETIQ has been announced as Abbeymead Rovers Under 8s new sponsor. The sponsorship will be put towards kits for the new season.  

Established in 1997 by a group of local parents that began training sessions for youngsters, Abbeymead Rovers FC has grown from humble beginnings to one of the biggest and most successful grassroots club in the country.  

An FA Charter Standard Community Club based near SYNETIQ’s Gloucester site, Abbeymead Rovers strive to provide football for all in a safe and fun environment for the benefit of the local community. The club now has over 800 registered members and 50 teams for age groups from five years to 70+, providing weekly sessions for its youth, adult, disability and walking football teams.  

As a not-for-profit run entirely by volunteer committee members, coaches and helpers, the club relies upon sponsorship from local businesses to keep running. 

“We would like to thank SYNETIQ for their sponsorship. The backing from local business is vital to the club and allows us to keep costs manageable and open to everyone.” said club Chairman Paul Mason. 

The sponsorship will provide the under 8s with match kits as they enter their first league. Paul continued: “It’s a really exciting time for the team as they’re about to join their first non-competitive league. Until now, they have played friendly matches organised by their coach. Now they’ll be able to step out onto the pitch in their new kits for their first competitive games.” 

Formed in 2019 with sites nationwide, community-giving plays a significant role in SYNETIQ’s operation, and the business continues to support a range of social and community causes.  

SYNETIQ will feature on the Abbeymead Rovers Under 8s player and coach kits, as well as pitch-side during games and at any tournament matches.
