Network My Club is to become the official networking partner of Hampshire FA in a 2-season partnership. The exclusive partnership will also offer competitive and exclusive perks for Hampshire FA and its partners.
Network My Club was founded by Bradley Hatchett, with the vision and desire to make networking ‘something you want to do’ rather than feel you ‘have to do it’. Revolutionising the networking landscape, Network My Club chooses venues that hold and bind a community together, with events held in top-class sporting venues that have an established place in our local communities. Their stadium networking events span the South, London, and Home Counties.
Network My Club offers a 3-tiered membership system including Network, Connect and Grow, designed to suit companies of all sizes and scales, with a range of commercial perks attached to the varying levels. Hampshire FA will become an established member of the ‘Grow’ tier, the top tier of membership, which will offer the county FA multiple opportunities to network online and in-person with other Network My Club members.
The membership system also offers companies exclusive benefits at various clubs and stadium partners aligned to Network My Club. Since 2020, Network My Club has evolved their offer to include online networking, offering diverse and inclusive ways for companies to grow and strengthen their presence without the demands of a commute.
The partnership will also offer an exclusive perk to all Hampshire FA commercial partners. The offer provided is for 2 months of free Network My Club membership. This offer can be activated by partners at any time during their partnership with Hampshire FA and will help to encourage partners to network and create potential leads for their businesses outside of the partnership with Hampshire FA. This equates to a minimum cost-saving of approximately £80.00 and encourages both face-to-face networking opportunities as well as online networking events.
In the second year of the partnership with Network My Club, the two organisations will join forces to host either a B2B online or in-person networking event, uniting partners of Hampshire FA with members of Network My Club. This collaboration will open the doors for both organisations to commercially collaborate and support each other’s organisations and associated memberships.
“It is a fantastic opportunity to partner with Network My Club and to provide Hampshire FA with a new space to operate on a networking front, whilst also extending the additional support to our commercial partners. We have exited a pandemic which has had effects on all businesses in varying ways. We recognise that whilst we hold our own exclusive networking opportunities for our partners, by collaborating with another networking partner and one that has its roots in sports as well, we can further boost our offering and in turn help pave the way for new connections and even new business prospects.” - Neil Cassar, Hampshire FA CEO
“I recall seeing Bradley and the Network My Club stand at the very first Hampshire Business Show that I attended. I remember wanting to partner with Network My Club just by their approach to networking which is very much in league with my own – informal, no hard sell, putting the enjoyment back into doing. How did the conversation begin with Network My Club? Simple. I spoke with a professional club, and a commercial manager, and tagged in Bradley and Network My Club. I had already promoted Network My Club personally in the absence of a commercial partnership with Hampshire FA. From there Bradley got in touch to thank me and we started a conversation about our own opportunity to partner. If you like, it was online networking at its very best.” - Isabella Pearson, Partnerships Lead at Hampshire FA.
“Partnering with Hampshire FA seemed a natural fit given our association and work with sports clubs and sporting venues. Hampshire is embedded into Network My Club’s roots given our work with both Portsmouth Football Club and The Ageas Bowl, so to be able to team up and partner with Hampshire FA to add value to their commercial partners is a really nice fit. Issy and the team share the same mindset and approach when it comes to networking and building relationships, so we look forward to connecting our respective communities and seeing where this collaboration can take everyone involved!” - Bradley Hatchett, Founder & Managing Director of Network My Club.
