‘Accessible website’ consultancy Huxley have teamed up with inclusivity champions Whitehawk FC to breathe extra life into Brighton’s progressive football stance, by signing up as shirt sponsors for their LBGTQ team Rainbow Rovers.
Rainbow Rovers – the new team, just a year old over at Whitehawk FC, have already picked up global fame with acclaimed visual artist David Shrigley designing their shirts. Their team – made up of LBGTQ players, beat an all star line up of ex-professionals last year, with politician and activist Sophie Cook as assistant player manager.
They look to build upon a fantastic founding year, despite a football season crushed by Covid 19. Huxley will sponsor Rainbow Rovers under a new 2 year deal, alongside a substantial sponsorship and advertising package with Whitehawk Football Club’s first team.
Hawk’s Head of Commercial and Marketing Kevin Miller said;
“This is a huge coup for the club to a young, vibrant and hungry team like Huxley Digital joining us, and we have already started working on some amazing new projects, that were not possible even a year ago”
He added; “This is another example of how Whitehawk Football club are now able to attract a new generation of company to the club, and how our message of 100% inclusion in football is spreading. I’d like to thank Dom Huxley and his team for being part of the Hawks’ growing family – I am really excited by this partnership and cannot wait to get started!”
Tom Lavis, Communications Director at Huxley, added:
“Having lived in and around Brighton for most of our adult lives, our business naturally embodies the values and culture of that City. We strive to make the Internet more accessible, which goes hand in hand with the incredible work Whitehawk are doing to make the game of football more diverse and inclusive. As a partnership it makes perfect sense, and we will continue to support the club in any way we can. Being football fans – we can’t wait for the season to start, and work together for a more Inclusive world!”
Huxley will be building the new Rainbow Rovers online hub in partnership with Whitehawk, to promote inclusivity and diversity in football. Watch for news on the Whitehawk FC website to see what happens as lower league clubs start to get their plans back on track.
