Bargate Homes have built an enviable reputation locally, not just for the quality and individuality of their homes and developments but for their 'purpose beyond profit' philosophy of giving back to the local areas they build in by way of community enhancement investment and support.
With this same dedication, Bargate Homes have committed to a 2-year partnership with Hampshire FA as Headline Sponsor of Stoneham Lane Football Complex.
Bargate is currently developing North Stoneham Park and saw this as the perfect opportunity to get involved with the local grassroots football investing back into the community.
Hampshire FA are operators of the £9 Million Stoneham Lane Football Complex Facility which hosts our key partner club AFC Stoneham, key partner league Eastleigh & District Mini Soccer League and our many other user clubs. The facility is part of the Parklife Project, an FA initiative to ensure the income generated at the football clubs is put back into funding grassroots football within the local area.
Bargate Homes’ sponsorship of the facility will be reinvested back into Stoneham Lane Football Complex, to support the facility improvement and development, and the proposed installation of LED floodlights in the hopefully not too distant future.
“We are delighted that Bargate Homes has chosen to opt for a 2-year agreement with Hampshire FA for the Stoneham Lane Football Complex headline sponsorship. The facility now has a partner compatible with its values and a sincere commitment to supporting the local community and additionally the grassroots community. Stoneham Lane Football Complex has achieved several milestones since the facility opened its doors and now exceeds over 60k registered members. The Bargate brand will be prominently displayed across the facility and will serve a proud place for the duration of this partnership and hopefully beyond” Neil Cassar, Hampshire FA CEO.
"This is the kind of initiative we love to do, supporting grassroots football on the doorstep of our Heritage Place development. It's wonderful to think that the local community can walk to such an excellent facility to enjoy organised training and games." Andrew French, Sales and Marketing Director at Bargate Homes.
