About us:

Who are we and what do we do

Marple Athletic Junior Football Club is the premier Charter Standard junior football club in Marple, entirely ran by a fantastic team of Volunteers. We have players from as young as four who grow up with us, and we amalgamated with Mellor FC so that our players now have a pathway into Youth and Open Age football. This means that the vast majority of our players leave us, giving your business a great chance to build brand loyalty through exposure to our members.

With  s a broad and vibrant membership demographic, we believe that sponsorship of Marple Athletic JFC will provide real value and a whole host of other benefits to your organisation, including:

  1. Marketing investment for financial return
  2. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
  3. Lead generation
  4. Promotion of a positive and healthy image for your company by linking to a popular activity
  5. Investment in something you / your company are passionate about!

Why sponsor us?

  1. We have a rapidly growing memberbership with high interaction and a wide reach on social media to promote our Sponsors.
  2. We work hard to support our local community creating further opportunities to enhance the reputation of our Sponsors thereby generating goodwill.
  3. We offer a range of packages to suit small and large Sponsors providing brand visibility on kit, equipment,  pitchside hoardings and througn social media.
  4. We provide targeted recognition to all our Sponsors to maximise exposure.
  5. We send out invitations to social and other events so you can put faces to the names and meet our hardworking  volunteers .
  6. Company logo and link on social media posts and website pages, to a growing audience of over half a million annually
  7. Opportunities to advertise at club events, to an audience wider than our existing membership base
  8. Captive audience of club members for exclusive business promotions, driving top-line sales

You'll also be able to network with our membership and other partners at our club events, such as: Golf Days, Fun Days, Race Nights, Social Evening Events, Swimming Galas, Bag Packing, Sponsored Runs, Penalty Shoot Outs. and we also support the Marple Carnival connecting us with the wider Marple area.


Continuous rapid growth means increased costs for training venues to accommodate this expansion. We currently have 25 teams that are playing in three different leagues and six girls teams playing in two different leagues. As well as this our Development School is flourishing and now have over 40+ participants.

We continue to support families facing financial hardship by ensuring there are sufficient funds to allow them to enjoy sport.

We continue to encourage more girls to the sport by putting on girls only mini tournaments in local junior schools.


We are working with the County FA to encourage schools to invest in their sporting facilities to promote multiuse and affordable facilities in the local area, a journey that we welcome you to join us on to increase exposure for your business.

We have invested in the pitch renovations and have plans to further invest in the clubhouse and changing room provisions at the Ridge Sports Pavilion in Wood Lane Marple which is currently used by Marple College, Marple Rugby Club, Mellor FC and Marple Athletic JFC
