Whitehawk FC welcome Huxley Digital as new shirt sponsors

Whitehawk Football Club are delighted to announce a new two-year partnership with ‘accessible web design’ agency Huxley Digital. The partnership includes back of shirt logo sponsorship of the clubs’ LBGTQ+ team Rainbow Rovers, designed by David Shrigley, and includes a substantial sponsorship and advertising package with Whitehawk Football Club’s first team.

The Huxley team, based in Worthing, have been inspired by the club’s stance on inclusion, and will work with the Hawk’s media & marketing team on a number of exiting projects over the coming months. Huxley specialise in building websites that comply with accessibility standards, meaning that people with physical, cognitive, environmental or technological issues can enjoy the Internet as easily as possible.

Tom Lavis, Communications Director at Huxley, is delighted with the partnership:

“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!”

Hawk’s Head of Commercial and Marketing Kevin Miller said;

“This is a huge coup for the club to have 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!”

The Rainbow Rovers shirt, designed by International Turner Prize Artist David Shrigley, OBE, was exhibited at the National Football Museum in Manchester, as part of their sell-out exhibition, ‘Strip – The Art of the Football shirt’, and is available to purchase in the club shop online.
