Farnham Town welcome PizzaExpress as a new Club Partner

Farnham Town are delighted to announce a new partnership with global restaurant brand PizzaExpress, which will see them be physically and digitally involved across the Club.

Coming into place this season, PizzaExpress will now be providing post-match hospitality meals for our Men’s and Women’s first teams, our U18s and all their opponents and match officials at every Farnham Town home game.

Additionally, PizzaExpress will become the headline partner of our Non-League Diaries series on YouTube, which since being launched in the summer of 2022, has amassed millions of views online across the long-form episodic content on YouTube, along with the short-form cut downs and snippets shared across other social media platforms.

Being our flagship piece of content we produce weekly throughout the season, Non-League Diaries has given fans unprecedented access to the behind-the-scenes goings on at Farnham Town. Not just local fans, but fans from across the country and worldwide, and we’re thrilled that PizzaExpress will support us in our journey to continue delivering industry-leading football content to an evergrowing fanbase.

We will also be working collaboratively with PizzaExpress to deliver bespoke online content and activations which will service the local community. All Season Ticket and Matchday Ticket holders will receive exclusive discounts at PizzaExpress’ Farnham restaurant on Castle Street, along with their restaurants in Fleet, Camberley and Aldershot, throughout the season which will be communicated in due course.

Lastly, PizzaExpress will also donate resources to Farnham Town to further develop and innovate our matchday hospitality service to our rapidly growing attendance.

Ed Kelsing, Farnham Town director, said: “I’m thrilled to be able to welcome another globally recognised brand to the Farnham Town family. PizzaExpress will be supporting the Club in more ways than one: they’re supporting our players across our senior teams with post-match catering, supporting our digital content through sponsoring Non-League Diaries, and also supporting our matchday hospitality through providing extra catering resources.

“Everyone at the Club is excited about this new partnership which will also serve the local community through exclusive discounts and offers which will be made available to our fans, as well as local PizzaExpress customers. I’d like to thank Paul and Paula for their commitment towards supporting Farnham Town and I look forward to us working closely together moving forward!”

We have a restaurant just around the corner, and it’s great to be working closely with the Club which is at the centre of the local community.

“Supporting Non-League Diaries is a really exciting prospect for us. It’s an innovative piece of video content that’s seen by thousands of people every week up and down the country, as well as overseas. We have restaurants in many of those locations which makes the prospect of being the lead sponsor of the series incredibly fulfilling for us as we look to reach new audiences.”

“This feels like the perfect time to partner with the Club as we look to support the grassroots level of the game. We’re all looking forward to seeing this come to life over the course of the new season!”

Paula Mackenzie [right of photo], CEO of PizzaExpress, said: “I’ve been a resident in Farnham for over 17 years, and now having the opportunity to partner with Farnham Town is awesome. I have two sons, they are football crazy and they have been loving following the progress the Club has been making in the last few years.

“We’re going to be doing activations with our Farnham restaurant where fans can come in either before or after Farnham Town games at The Memorial Ground and get discounts on their meals, but most importantly get some great pizza as well!”

Throughout the season, we will be providing updates on partner offers with PizzaExpress available to our fans and the local Farnham community, so make sure you’re following us across our social media channels for updates!
