Crown Paints is sponsoring four grassroots football teams, providing them with brand new kits, following a social media competition.


All four lucky football teams were selected at random from the hundreds of correct entries to the Crown’s Colourful Kits competition, which took place on the Crown Trade and Crown Decorating Centres social media channels.


Each week for four weeks, Crown posted a colourful graphic of an international football team kit – France, Belgium, Nigeria and Colombia – which were all rendered using Crown Paints’ colours. Those entering the competition simply had to correctly guess the name of the team and comment the answer, along with the name of a local grassroots football team which they felt deserved sponsorship.


The winning teams – AFC Sharrow (Sheffield), Linfield Ladies Youth Academy (Belfast), St Andrews Boys Club (Greenock) and Morden Little League (Sutton) – have now received a year’s sponsorship from Crown Paints, with stylish new kits.


Crown Paints brand manager Lindsay Hall said: “We have a long history of supporting community projects, so we’re really pleased to have been able to sponsor four very deserving grassroots football teams as part of our Crown’s Colourful Kits competition.


“We wish AFC Sharrow, Linfield Ladies Youth Academy, St Andrews Boys Club, and Morden Little League the best of luck this season, and we’re looking forward to seeing how the teams will do over the next year.”
