Hurlimann lager is leading the way in supporting women’s football by sponsoring Gillingham Ladies FC in a deal which backs the club’s continuing success.

The beer will support the club over the next two years with advertising, branded training T-shirts and match prizes. The agreement follows similar announcements earlier this month in the men’s game; supporting the Kent Hurlimann Football League and Chatham Town FC.

Hurlimann brand manager Louise Weatherstone said: “Female football is taking off in a big way, as shown by the success of the recent Women’s World Cup and the Women’s Super League. Hurlimann and

Gillingham Ladies FC’s shared love of football makes for a great partnership which promises to entertain and excite fans throughout the season.”

The club’s first and reserve teams have enjoyed unrivalled success in the last three seasons and will bid to join the Women’s Super League when the FA invites submissions at the end of the 2012-13 season.
Gillingham Ladies FC will be sharing a ground for the 2011-12 season with Chatham Town FC.

Club chairman Martin Andrews said: “The club is probably one of the best at promoting women’s football. Last season’s attendances against Arsenal, Chelsea, Charlton and West Ham showed that the club really can attract fans.”
