Penny explained how the partnership will benefit Videndum.
“We are keen to promote Videndum Production Solutions as a local employer who supports gender diversity. Our brands, Anton Bauer, Autocue, Autoscript, Litepanels, OConnor, Quasar Science, Sachtler and Vinten, are currently more well known than our company name, so we hope this partnership will help to improve our visibility in the local community,” she said.
“With women’s football becoming more prevalent across the globe, we are looking forward to supporting the next generation of footballers to fulfil their dreams and supporting young women breaking through traditional roles.”
Suffolk FA Marketing & Communications Officer Nick Garnham said: “We are delighted to welcome Videndum as the new sponsor of the Suffolk Girls’ Youth Cups.
“Attracting such an internationally renowned business can only help lift the profile of Girls’ football in the county even more at what is such an exciting time for the female game.”
