Simpson Developments, a leading homebuilding firm based in Ballyclare, has announced its sponsorship of Rosario Football Club during the highly anticipated Foyle Cup this July.


The competitive junior competition for soccer players between the ages of nine and 19, the Foyle Cup is a six-day affair taking place in Derry-Londonderry from July 17-22.


In what is considered one of the most premier youth football tournaments in all of Europe, it showcases exceptional young talent in the soccer world and provides an ideal platform for Simpson Developments to demonstrate its commitment to supporting local communities and fostering youth development.


“By associating our brand with Rosario FC, a respected and accomplished team, we aim to further emphasise our dedication to nurturing and empowering young athletes. We understand Rosario’s values and commitment to promoting inclusiveness through sport and we embody a shared vision for a more inclusive and interconnected community. Most importantly, we recognise that the passion and camaraderie generated by sports can bridge divides that may otherwise separate us,” said David Simpson, Director of Simpson Developments.


Rosario FC is a cross-community football club based on Ormeau Road and it is one of Belfast’s biggest soccer clubs.


Simpson Developments sponsorship of Rosario’s bid in the Foyle Cup will cover the cost of a new kit which will proudly display the homebuilder’s name. The sponsorship will also go towards the travel and accommodation costs incurred during the competition.


Mr Simpson added: “This sponsorship holds immense significance to Simpson Developments. As a team, we understand the importance of investing in the future and believe that by sponsoring Rosario FC, we can contribute to their growth and success on and off the field. We are proud to align ourselves with a club that shares our values and aspirations and we wish them much luck in the Foyle Cup.”
