Sponsor Belnorth in 2024

With the start of the year, Belnorth is looking for Jersey Sponsors.

In time for 2024, we have introduced an additional jersey design with a stripe. In the 2023 winter season, our U5-U9 teams were bursting at the seams, which required some juggling of jersey colours to avoid clashes. The new striped version has 13 variations to ensure enough variations for all our teams in 2024.

With the buzz still around from the Womens World Cup, we have had bumper numbers for our Summer Comp, so we expect even bigger numbers for the 2024 winter season.

Select ElectricalFoster JohnsonECG ElectricalNew Step Podiatry and Capital Trophies & Sportswear have already signed up as sponsors for 2024. If you want to join them and sponsor jerseys or know a business that might be interested, please email
