Brentford FC Community Sports Trust has been nominated for a prize at the Football Business Awards, which will be held later this month. Launched in 2012, the Football Business Awards celebrate the very best in football business and attract 500 attendees to the ceremony each year. The judging panel is made up of chief executives of football clubs, professional football associations and grassroots football organisations – all individuals whose knowledge, expertise and experience gives them special insight into the challenges and demands of football business success - and they have highlighted our Trust for praise.
The Trust has been nominated for the Best Covid-19 Community Response (Non-Premier League) prize. When people all over the country were asked to stay at home to delay the spread of Covid-19, the Trust sprung in to action. Mainly through #BeeAtHome and #BeeWell campaigns they encouraged children and adults to stay active at home and look after their mental wellbeing.
The awards will be held on 23 September. The announcement of the nomination is a reminder of one announced in April. Brentford FC has also been nominated for the marketing of our third kit for the 2019/20 season. Read more here.
