Eton Fives Association And Advanta Wealth Ltd Announce Three-Year Sponsorship Of Eton Fives
The Eton Fives Association (EFA) and Advanta Wealth Ltd are delighted to announce that we have agreed an historic three-year sponsorship which will provide substantial funds to further the work of the EFA, in particular for realising the aims of its seven-year development plan, The FiveStar project. This is the largest commercial sponsorship in the history of Eton Fives and a landmark moment for the sport.
In addition to supporting tournaments and other events throughout the season, Advanta will also be supporting the EFA in hosting a prestigious end of the season awards dinner at the RAC Club in May 2019. We hope all players, partners and friends of Fives will join us at this exciting event.
In welcoming its new partners, Chris Davies, Chairman of the Eton Fives Association, commented “We are delighted that Advanta Wealth has recognised the momentum that the sport of Eton Fives currently enjoys and that it has decided to support its development through significant sponsorship over the coming years. The EFA’s dynamic FiveStar project, through its promotion of clubs, courts and coaches, is designed to enable as many groups of children and adults as possible to access the game. Whilst the programme has made an incredible start we all recognise that with Advanta Wealth at our side we can bring this wonderful game to even more people, even more quickly. We can all aspire to new levels of ambition through this partnership.”
Craig Webster, CEO of Advanta Wealth said “It has been a continued project here at Advanta Wealth to support sport through both sponsorship and our charitable trust. Our charitable trust supports projects all over the world and puts a significant emphasis on encouraging children from all backgrounds to participate in sport. The EFA’s FiveStar project perfectly encompasses this aim and is a cause that we feel is fully deserving of our support. We also have a personal connection to the world of Fives as we have worked with a significant number of individuals in the Fives community over the last 25 years through our wealth management services and we have three active Fives players employed in the London office. All of this has meant that joining forces with the EFA was a logical step in Advanta Wealth’s journey.”
