We’re delighted to announce that Goalfix is to become the new sponsor of Goalball UK’s Club and Player of the Season awards.
The Goalfix Club of the Season award is the latest addition to Goalball UK’s end of season awards. It was added to the programme this year to celebrate the monumental effort made by clubs up and down the country, both on and off the court during the current Pandemic.
With clubs left unable to practice or compete many have offered online support and activities to players and the wider community to help with both their physical and mental well-being.
Russell Warnock, Director at Goalfix, said: In what has been a truly testing period, the goalball community has continued to inspire us with their resilience and determination. We are really proud to be involved with the awards that will put the spotlight on some of these remarkable people and clubs.
As we look forward to 2021, we want to wish everyone involved good health, a strong mindset and the prospect of getting back on the court to play the sport we love.
Building on strong foundations
The new partnership is an extension of the existing partnership which has seen Goalfix sponsor the Goalfix Cup for five consecutive years.
Mark Winder, CEO of Goalball UK, said: We are really pleased to be partnering once again with Goalfix, a business that shares our values and passion for goalball.
Having Goalfix involved with these awards, which are the highlight of the goalball calendar for many, underpins their commitment to the sport and eagerness to support its growth in the UK.
We have worked with Goalfix for many years and this latest partnership is another exciting chapter in what continues to be a brilliant working relationship.
The relationship between Goalball UK and Goalfix dates back a decade to the World Championships in 2010, when Goalfix supplied the equipment for the landmark tournament. This was the first time Goalball UK had run a major competition after their formation in the same year.
It was also the first time Goalfix had built and supplied adaptive sports equipment, and acted as the catalyst for the company’s move to support para sports around the world with cutting edge adaptive sports products.
Nominations and awards
Nominations for both awards are due to open in March, with winners to be announced after the end of the current season.
Award winners will receive a bundle of premium goalball equipment, including our unique Eclipse eyeshades and sound balls.
