LOWESTOFT business Dream Installations have agreed a partnership with Suffolk FA to support Barnards Meadow Football Centre in the town.
Dream Installations, who supply windows, doors and conservatories, will be the main sponsor of the site in Barnards Way.
Suffolk FA took over the tenancy of the facility in October 2022 after Sentinel Leisure Trust, who operated the centre, ceased trading and closed the site earlier in the year.
The move ensured that the local football community would be able to once again grow, develop and thrive in North Lowestoft.
The football training facility features a 3G floodlit pitch, classroom and changing facilities.
It is used by Waveney FC, Lowestoft Town Football Club's Centre of Excellence, Access Sport Education, the Jamie Godbold Football Academy, Coffee Rush and the Brian Gallagher Football Fund.

Dream Installations Director Glenn Brodie said: “We have been established for 20 years and as local people we would like to put something back into the local community.
“We are delighted to be associated with a brand as well recognised in the county as Suffolk FA.
“Both myself and my business partner Roy Clements have children who have played grassroots football, so we are aware of the benefits that brings to all those involved.”
Chris Bond, who is Facility & Football Development Officer at Barnards Meadow Football Centre, said: “I would like say a massive thank you to Dreams Installations for their support of Barnards Meadow Football Centre and the wider local grassroots scene.
“Their contribution will not only allow us to start the process of wider developments on site but enable our programme of use to grow and allow the site to remain a footballing hub in Lowestoft.
“It’s great to have a great local partner on board and I hope this is the start of a great relationship between Dreams Installations and Suffolk FA.”
