New sponsor, a new name, and a new goal for Soccer Sevens Competition

The annual Scottish Schools Football Association (SSFA) Soccer Sevens Competition has kicked off and the 2018/19 tournament has a new sponsor, a new name, and a new goal of supporting the STV Children’s Appeal.

The tournament will include a charitable element for the first time; it will raise funds for the STV Children’s Appeal.

The STV Children’s Appeal helps children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland. Every single penny raised for it stays in Scotland - 100% of donations is invested in charities and projects across the country as all of its overheads are met by STV and The Hunter Foundation.

Through its partnership with the STV Children’s Appeal, the Concept Soccer Sevens 2018/19 will help make a real difference to children and young people experiencing hardship in communities all over Scotland. That means schools participating in the tournament will be able to play an important part in supporting the Appeal’s efforts to offer practical help like providing food and clothing, creating training opportunities to improve employability, and enabling social and emotional support.

Concept group marketing manager Rod Smith said: “Concept Group is extremely proud to be sponsoring SSFA’s fantastic schools’ soccer tournament and support the STV Children’s Appeal for the first time this year. The wonderful work the charity has achieved in helping improve the lives of Scottish children living in poverty is one which is close to the hearts of all our employees so we didn’t need to think twice when asked to be involved.”
