Veezu funds kit for local Under 10’s Football Club

1 November 2023

Leading private hire firm Veezu, formerly named City Taxis, is sponsoring the Eckington Boys Football Club under 10’s boys team for their upcoming season.

Founded in 1983, Eckington Boys has a strong history of nurturing local talent and fostering a sense of unity among its 12 age groups.

The sponsorship will provide the club with essential funding to cover the expenses of a new training kit for the under 10’s boys team, with the Veezu logo appearing on the front.

Veezu is a regional brand of Veezu Group, who stepped in to donate to the local cause through their community support programme ‘Funded by Veezu’. The programme is a way in which local not-for-profit initiatives can receive grants and support.

Sacha Skinner, Regional Marketing Manager (North) at Veezu, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Eckington Boys and invest in the future of our community through this sponsorship. Youth sports instil valuable life skills and help shape the character of our young athletes. We’re proud to be a part of their journey and wish them a successful season ahead.”

“I’d like to thank Sacha and all at Veezu for their generous donation. The training wear has come out brilliant and we are proud to carry the sponsor on our shirt. The support is much appreciated and helps us to provide the best equipment and sportswear possible which is just what the children deserve. Thank you all again.” Said Dale Booth, Eckington Boys and Belles U10 Blues Manager.

Veezu is the new name for City Taxis across Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Derby and Chesterfield. A regional brand of the UK’s fastest-growing taxi and private hire technology platform Veezu Group, City Taxis was acquired in February 2023.
