At Altnets, we are committed to being active contributors to our local community. That’s why we’re delighted to share our latest initiative: sponsoring the Worthing Football Club (FC) Women’s team. This partnership isn’t just about printing our name on some football shirts; it’s a tangible investment in the Sussex community. We do what we can to address the gender imbalance within the telecoms industry by promoting roles for women, so we are naturally keen to contribute to the growth and recognition of women’s football and play a small role in inspiring the next generation of female athletes.

Worthing FC, founded in February 1886 and based in West Sussex, has a range of teams from men’s and women’s to age groups from under 14s to under 19s, as well as an inclusive team for adults with additional needs. The club’s commitment to nurturing local talent extends to offering a Development Centre, which embraces young players up to age 13, alongside an Education Programme supported by Chichester College Group. We applaud the club’s commitment to nurturing local talent, which reflects our shared values of community support and inclusivity.

Inclusivity is hugely significant at Altnets. As a company in the telecoms sector, where gender imbalance among staff is common, we’re proud to have a higher female percentage in our team than the industry average. Creating an environment where everyone, regardless of gender, feels valued and supported is a core belief, which is why we are an excellent fit to sponsor the Worthing FC Women’s team.

At the heart of our sponsorship lies a deep connection to the team. Jordan Collins, our Business Development Director, has strong personal ties to the Worthing Women’s team and its players. Jordan’s enthusiasm for football began at Southwater Football Club, where he grew up and he remains involved with grassroots football and actively participates in local charity events.

Jordan says: “Through sponsoring the Worthing women’s team, we want to invest in the success of our community, but also in women’s sports, as female athletes are often neglected and underfunded, despite their talent and dedication.

“We want to thank the Worthing FC Women’s team for welcoming us onto the back of their shirts. Currently sitting at 3rd in their division and having won four out of their last five games, we are excited to see what the future holds!

“To further support our community, later this year the Altnets team will be participating in a 6-a-side tournament, hosted by Worthing FC, in support of local businesses.”

The Altnets team is eagerly looking forward to attending a game soon and witnessing firsthand the dedication and talent of the WFC Women’s team. Join us in cheering for the Mackerels and supporting women’s football!
