A TECHNOLOGY business is celebrating ten years of partnering with Suffolk FA.
CNet Training, the international technical education company based at Fornham Genevieve just outside Bury St Edmunds, sponsored the Suffolk Junior Cup during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
They then sponsored both the Junior Cup and Senior Cup in the 2015-16 season and have sponsored the Senior Cup for the past six seasons.
The 2022-23 season will mark the tenth anniversary of CNet Training’s partnership with Suffolk FA and their eighth successive season as sponsors of the competition.
CNet Training Chief Executive Officer Andrew Stevens said: “We are delighted to move into our 10th successive season of sponsoring the Suffolk FA County Cups, and especially the Senior Cup, being the oldest competition in Suffolk having been first played back in 1885, it’s a real legacy cup.
“At CNet Training, we are genuinely passionate about supporting and encouraging grassroots football and helping to inspire players. Suffolk FA does amazing work for the local football community, and we are proud play our part within this.”
Suffolk FA Chief Executive Richard Neal said: “To have an organisation of the calibre of CNet Training, an internationally recognised company in their field, continuing to recognise our work by partnering with us is a real honour.
“Andrew and the team are fantastic supporters of local football, including a number of staff who volunteer at local clubs.
Our partnership entering its tenth year ensures we can continue to offer the Senior Cup experience we aim for, particularly to those teams and their supporters who successfully progress to the final.”
The draw for the first round of the CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup will be announced on BBC Radio Suffolk on Thursday evening from 8pm onwards.
