FireRite Teams up with Cardiff City Community Partnership

Back to News

Here at FireRite, we are delighted to announce that we have officially teamed up with the Cardiff City Partnership.

We joined forces with the successful football team to celebrate the community aspect of the club. A number of other regional businesses and SMEs have also signed up for the partnership scheme. This is further backing of the city’s club by local businesses, and, at the same time, those companies will receive recognition for their support on club billboards and club other media.

From Cardiff City FC fan to a Community partner

A spokesman for FireRite said: “We’ve always been big fans of our local team, and when we learned they wanted to sign up local businesses in the form of a community partnership, we jumped at the chance. It’s exciting to be part of a programme which puts investing and helping the local community – both businesses and residents - at its heart.”

At FireRite – a proud family-run business - we have been providing fire compliance and fire training advice, fire door installation and maintenance for more than 22 years now. We were awarded Best Fire Safety & Compliance Consultancy Business for both 2020 & 2021 at the Welsh Enterprise Awards.  

A spokesman for @CardiffCityFC said: “Over many years of playing in the Premier League and Championship, the Club has remained committed to its important role in its local community. Through our collaboration and the introduction of the new Community Partner programme, we will be able to extend support for the people and economy around us even further.”

More digital platforms – both off and on field

The sports and community partnership idea is the brainchild of Eleven Sports Media. The sign-up means that all of the community partners will have the opportunity to feature on Eleven’s digital platforms, as well as the company’s pre-match, in-match and post-match social media feeds.

There will also be the chance for local businesses to have their branding aired on the Cardiff City FC stadium TV and StatTV when the team are playing. Advertising space will also be utilised on the club’s LED boards. This will mean Cardiff and regional businesses being advertised to thousands of local fans both on the pitch and online. When the team is playing nationally, the audience numbers will jump to tens of thousands of watchers and football fans.

Nic Heslop, Head of Commercial at Cardiff City FC, said the club had always considered itself to be a team of South Wales. He added: “That brings a tremendous opportunity for us to connect with a broad local community on a number of levels. This is pivotal to the success of Cardiff City Football Club, and something which we believe can give us a competitive

Cardiff City FC – a team with an admirable history and values

Matt Cairns, CEO & Founder of Eleven Sports Media, said he was proud to be associated with a club of the caliber of Cardiff City, whose history and values he deeply admired.

He added that the partnership was designed to bolster the club’s strategy of supporting local business communities.
