MKM Chelmsford have recently saved the day for the local Chelmsford City Walking Football Team. The team needed sponsorship to attend the inaugural Almelo City Cup in the Netherlands in May. The team have 12 players signed up for the walking football tournament that will be played at the Heracles Stadion, home of Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo, but sponsors were needed to cover their hotel and travel costs.
The team featured in the local newspaper hoping to win some sponsorship to help them get to the cup final, however no other businesses stepped in to sponsor. MKM Chelmsford heard about the team’s plea and wanted to help them.
Branch Director Mark Ward said “Giving back to the local community is really important to us and we like to make sure we support as many local teams as possible.”
Teams from across Europe will be present at the tournament between May 16 and 19, and the Chelmsford boys expect to come up against teams from Holland, Belgium and France in their pursuit of glory.
We wish them all the best for the tournament!
