As the 2019/20 Football seasons start to get underway, DigiEnable have taken their partnership with Chorley FC to a new level, including pitch side sponsorship and becoming more active “behind the scenes” at the National League Club.
It was only 18 months ago, DigiEnable co-founder Liz Hardwick attended a business networking event at the club as an opportunity to meet new businesses in the Chorley area. A regular feature of the “Magpies Business Network” is a prize draw in which Chorley FC merchandise is given away to the winners. Liz Hardwick’s card was drawn, and the rest as they say…is history.
Liz Hardwick says “At the time I found it quite funny that I’d won a branded bobble hat, but knew that opportunities to wear it are few and far between, so I made the decision to attend a Chorley FC home game with my business partner, Darren Jenkinson. Just going to Victory Park for a game was a completely new experience but I loved every minute of it. Chorley FC fans are incredible and turn up come rain or shine, and the banter that’s had with the away fans is always good natured as we’re often sharing the same terraces. We felt very much at home, and we’ve barely missed a match since, becoming not only fans of the club, but also fans of the hardworking team, mostly volunteers, who give their time for the love of the club”
Since then DigiEnable have worked closely with Commercial Manager, Josh Vosper, to explore new ways in which DigiEnable could support the club as they headed towards promotion in the 2018/19 season.
