COMMUNITY: On The Ball Media and Sky Blues in the Community media partnership announced for Player Development Centres

26 May 2022

On The Ball Media has a strong history and reputation for supporting local grassroots sports in Coventry and Warwickshire.

As a local organisation, they are aware of the good work that Sky Blues in the Community do for the people of Coventry and Warwickshire, and were excited to hear about opportunities to support the charity when we made contact earlier in the year.

This has led to an initial one-year deal starting for the 2022-2023 season, which will see On The Ball Media become one of the partners and the new charity media sponsor for Sky Blues in the Community Player Development Centres (PDC’s).

This support will help our Player Development Centres continue to grow. We now have over 650 players who train weekly and 33 league teams, with more set to be added for the coming season.

Joshua Pyott, Sports Development Officer SBitC, said

“When the opportunity to work with On The Ball Media presented itself it was one we simply couldn’t turn down. A company with expertise in grassroots football media is rare, and we are excited to welcome them as one of the new charity partners.”

The insight that On the Ball Media will provide will be fantastic. They are a really forward-thinking company and are keen to support us in every way they can.’’

“The possibilities are endless as we strive to ensure the best possible experience for are players from VEO recordings, player profiles and match day highlight reels.’’

"I can’t thank them enough for coming on board, especially in these challenging times. I am excited to see how it can grow further moving forwards.”

Matthew Beatty, Managing Director, On The Ball Media, said

“Our partnership with Sky Blues in the community means we can help provide high quality media coverage across all areas, shining a light on the great work done by the foundation. From the Football development programme to disability football, we will be on hand to help.”

“We’re so excited to begin working together.”
