MatchFit Appointed by Football Price Comparison Site FOOTY.COM
Football price comparison brand FOOTY.COM has appointed football PR and sponsorship agency MatchFit as its retained agency. MatchFit will lead on communications for FOOTY.COM, with a clear remit to showcase the brand’s purpose to make football more affordable for players and fans alike.
FOOTY.COM was founded on the sole purpose to make the game more affordable, allowing football lovers to search, compare and save money on products from the world’s leading sportswear brands and retailers. Whether it’s the latest kit, boots, or equipment, FOOTY.COM conveniently and impartially compares prices on more than 60,000 football products, making it easy for fans to make savings on and off the pitch.
The ongoing relationship comes after MatchFit collaborated on FOOTY.COM’s recent January campaign, which lampooned the typical transfer window closing hysteria in a parody of television transfer deadline day coverage. The spoof film launched a new brand refresh and featured headline talent in Chelsea and West Ham stars Beth England and Jarrod Bowen respectively, as FOOTY.COM showcased the unique football deals on offer at the online platform.
The news comes at an exciting time of growth for football PR and sponsorship specialists MatchFit, who further expands its client roster alongside stellar retained partners such as LiveScore, The FA, The EFL and one of the world’s leading football clubs.
Recently MatchFit won ‘Breakthrough Agency of the Year’ at the prestigious UK Sponsorship Awards 2022. It is currently shortlisted as ‘Young Agency of the Year’ at the upcoming Sport Industry Awards and as ‘Agency of the Year’ at The Football Business Awards.
Sam Patterson, Marketing Director at FOOTY.COM said;
“We are thrilled to be working with the team at MatchFit at such an exciting time in the FOOTY.COM journey. MatchFit’s creativity, strategic thinking and deep understanding of football culture means the it is a brilliant fit for our business, as we seek to help make the game more affordable for our audience.”
Donald Parish, Co-Founder of MatchFit, said;
“FOOTY.COM is an innovative and growing brand on a mission to help make football more affordable. We are excited that MatchFit will once again be working with a business who share our values with a clear point of difference within football. We can’t wait to get cracking on future PR campaigns to tell FOOTY.COM’s story and reach new audiences.”
