FA Update – 9th June
We’re pleased to announce that Isuzu UK will become our new title sponsor for the FA Trophy and FA Vase.
England’s two leading non-league competitions will now be known as the Isuzu FA Trophy and the Isuzu FA Vase from today and into the 2022-23 season, as Isuzu UK look to become the driving force behind grassroots football.
The Isuzu FA Trophy is open to clubs playing in Steps 1 to 4 of the FA’s National League System, which are the four tiers immediately below League Two of the EFL, and the Isuzu FA Vase is open to clubs at Steps 5 to 6. The round dates, clubs accepted and any exemptions for both competitions will be announced in July 2022.
The Finals of both competitions are to be held at the home of English football, Wembley Stadium connected by EE, in May 2023. Last season’s ‘Non-League Finals Day’ attracted a crowd of 46,111 people who witnessed two exciting games where Newport Pagnell won The FA Vase and Bromley lifted The FA Trophy.
Isuzu dealerships all across the county will be getting actively involved with their local clubs, with several having already started making preparations for local sponsorship deals, placement of advertising boards and promotional matchday activations.
Our commercial director Navin Singh said: “We’re really excited to welcome Isuzu onboard as both a partner and title sponsor of the FA Trophy and the FA Vase. These competitions involve National League System teams across the length and breadth of the country, and Isuzu’s commitment to this level of the game and extensive network of dealerships will help to support them next season and beyond.”
Meanwhile, William Brown, managing director of Isuzu UK, added: “We’re extremely delighted to announce our new partnership with the FA and the title sponsorship of the FA Trophy and FA Vase competitions.
“We know that a local football club can often be the heart of a community, being run by volunteers and supported by local people and this is something that, along with the Isuzu dealer network throughout the country, we’re pleased to support.
“We’re looking forward to actively supporting the teams involved in the two competitions and being the driving force behind grassroots football. We can’t wait to kick off the new season.”
