Written by 

The Aberdeen & District Juvenile Football Association has announced that Spree Publications will sponsor the ADJFA competitive league for season 2018/19 which commences this weekend (25th/26th August 2018.)

Following a trial run last Christmas, Spree Publications have agreed to sponsor the ADJFA Competitive League with £1000 and they will give the League £1 for every book/app sold by teams, alongside this, teams will get £6 from each book /app sold from the sale of 20 books/apps.

The more enterprising teams can increase the amount of commission the more books/apps they sell. As the books are on a sale or return basis it is a great way to augment your fund raising ability. The sponsorship deal will not be restricted to the competitive teams but will also be rolled out to include the Development age groups playing 4/5/7 or 9 a side non-competitive football.

The Aberdeen & District Juvenile Football Association say that the more books/apps that are sold the more funds are raised for both clubs and the association allowing the league to maintain the affiliation fees at the current level. Customers will also get a free app on their mobile device when they have bought a book.

Spree has previously provided sponsorship to youth and community groups around Aberdeen and managing director, David Wood, is delighted to be continuing to provide financial support particularly as his own son played in the ADJFA.
He said: “Supporting local community groups is at the very heart of what Spree is about. In the 19 years since the launch we have donated more than £2 million to great causes across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.

“We also have strong links with the local sporting scene and are really pleased to be able to donate some money to ADJFA and help the players, coaches and their families fund raise and save money.

“In selling our new Spree Books, the teams can help raise money to go towards new kits, travel or even the likes of subsidising club fees.”
