McDonald's extend grassroots support
CONTINUED sponsorship from McDonald’s has enabled Suffolk FA to be able to deliver football across the county this season.
McDonald’s have been a long-standing partner of the Suffolk FA and have continued to support grassroots football across three different areas.
They have agreed this season to once again sponsor the Grassroots Awards Ceremony, the Suffolk Primary Cup and the Female Leadership Academy.
Nominations for the 2021 FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Awards are currently open. The awards celebrate those people who make a positive difference by putting their heart and soul into the grassroots game across Suffolk.

The outstanding ties in the second round of the McDonald’s Suffolk Primary Cup are set to resume from April 17th onwards, with the third round scheduled for a fortnight thereafter.
The Female Leadership Academy, which was launched last season, has continued to meet via online meetings during the current campaign.
McDonald’s franchisee Carol Rogerson said: “We are delighted to have been able to continue to support grassroots football through Suffolk FA during these difficult and unprecedented times.
“Although grassroots football has been on hold in terms of active participation, Suffolk FA have continued working in the background so that the game can now continue at grassroots level.
“We look forward to the conclusion of this season’s McDonald’s Suffolk Primary Cup competition and also to being able to congratulate and share in the success of The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards when we are able to.”
Suffolk FA Chief Executive Richard Neal said: “We are extremely pleased to announce our continued partnership with this Suffolk-based franchise, which will contribute to us reviving the local game after such a disrupted and difficult period.”
