The Scottish Football Association (FA) is delighted to announce SPAR as a new sponsor of the Scotland Women’s National Team (SWNT).

The deal will see SPAR Scotland partner with the SWNT for its biggest year yet, as the squad prepares for its inaugural appearance at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France in June.

The sponsorship, which will run until summer 2020, will see SPAR Scotland support the SWNT as they look to build on the wave of momentum that has been generated over the past three years.

Head coach, Shelley Kerr, said she’s delighted to welcome SPAR on board as a sponsor: “We’re building towards the biggest tournament in our history this summer, something for which the players and our fans alike cannot wait.

“To have the support of a company such as SPAR means so much to us – it helps us prepare for France this summer and is a huge boost to all involved with the squad.”

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to support the Scotland Women’s National Team. We are committed to encouraging them to get to the final and support them on their journey in this historic year.

“Our close relationship will ensure that we can continue our commitment of encouraging people in sport.

“We see this new sponsorship deal as an extension of our work to date. At SPAR we have always promoted health living for all and support sport on a regional and national level. The deal with the SWNT is the perfect partnership.”
