WOKING FC have agreed a sponsorship deal with Japanese pharmaceutical company Kenrico, which will see the club gain overseas exposure and help assist with medical sporting development.
Kenrico Ltd, who export their goods worldwide, were attracted to the history and tradition of Woking FC and, with a successful structure from first team through to Academy and community teams, the club gave Kenrico an ideal testing template.
Kenrico is launching a new campaign to promote the use of Kenrico Sap Sheet or Kenrico Detox Pads on football players and athletes all over the world. Kenrico Sap Sheet or Kenrico Detox Pads will be used by Woking FC's football players.
Kenrico director Nurman Salim said: â€œ Cold weather affects the cardiovascular system, making it harder for a person to breathe or generate sufficient heat through metabolism. With the proven positive effects of our product, we hope that many footballers and athletes can utilize our product to their benefit for increasing their stamina and resistance to cold, besides reducing the risk of injuries after strenuous training and matches.
"Woking FC is a true people's club with a great history dating back since 1889. We are very pleased to be able to partner with Woking FC for many years to come."
The sponsorship deal will see Kenricoâ€™s name on perimeter advertising, the club website and matchday programme in addition to matchday hospitality, and will in return see players helping to develop Kenrico products.
Woking Football Clubâ€™s Commercial Manager, Dave Riche said: â€œWeâ€™re delighted to have attracted overseas interest to the club.
â€œNowadays, we are accessible overseas due to the website where highlights of games can be seen and we hope this is just the start of our partnership.â€�
