DoorCo sponsors Macclesfield FC

DoorCo has announced a sponsorship deal with the Northern Premier League team, Macclesfield FC.

Reborn in 2020 under the leadership of local businessman, Robert Smethurst, and former Premier League and Welsh international footballer, Robbie Savage, the club has gone from strength to strength in recent times with back to back promotions and now being crowned league champions.

Ellie Pool, marketing manager at DoorCo, explained: “We’re all really excited about our new partnership with Macclesfield FC. This sponsorship is a really natural fit for us as a business. We’re big football fans and really proud of the growth of our local team, so sponsoring the club for the 2023/24 season was a really easy choice for us to make.

“The decision had many layers to it. Our advertising message is focused around recruitment and using our place within the ground as a space to share our brand with local people who may be interested in starting a career with us. However, this is more than a sponsorship deal and our partnership with the club has allowed us to offer some fantastic opportunities to our existing employees too.”

Dek Wright, head of HR at DoorCo, continued: “We’re truly delighted to see our relationship with the team at Macclesfield FC start to grow. The benefits of the sponsorship that we’ve been able to pass on to our employees are as important to us as the advertising opportunity itself.

“Partnering with a local sports organisation has allowed us to focus on health and wellbeing opportunities for our staff.

“We recently took part in the sponsors football match and were thrilled to see the enthusiasm of our employees to join our newly formed DoorCo FC team and continue their training together beyond this one-time match. We’ve also recently used the newly-refurbished bar facilities to host our summer party which was a brilliant occasion for all staff to get together and get to know each other better. Lastly, we now offer a subsidised gym membership for all DoorCo employees at the club’s gym, Rise Fitness”.

Ellie concluded: “We’re proud to see our brand alongside so many other fantastic local businesses, of whom we respect for their great work. Although our partnership with Macclesfield FC has got off to a flying start, this really is just the beginning of our journey together with many more fun collaborations on the horizon.

“Next up is our involvement in the kit launch promotional video, of which parts are being filled within our offices with some of our team members taking centre stage. We’re excited to support our local team for the season ahead and wish them another run of success.”
