Since the team was established in 2016, we have worked tirelessly through self-funding to put ourselves through the British 5 aside flag football tournament, Opal series, closely followed by our debut in the 5 aside tackle tournament, Sapphire Series, in February 2017. Last year saw another big move, from the 5 aside to the 7 aside tournament of Sapphire Series 2018.
It really has been a hard but well deserved journey for the Valkyries, and we have worked so very hard over the last two years to find sponsorship to support our journey. We are finally honoured to announce our first ever sponsor –Physis Ltd. Company owner – Kirstyn Lobo – had this to say about this historical sponsorship:
“Physis has proved to be one of Europe’s top selling brands online specialising in quality nutritional supplements that facilitate the improvement of Health and Vitality.
Our Physis family consists of parents, part-time students, home-workers and globe trotters, and we are proud to offer flexible hours and an environment that emulates actually giving a damn!
It is with this caring and progressive management style that Physis have looked to find ways to uplift and encourage the local community – cue the Valkyries.
The Valkyries offer an inclusive environment where different shapes, sizes, skills and experience can come together to progress themselves and American Football, for women in Wales and beyond. It is for these reasons that the Physis team is extremely proud to align ourselves with a group that speak so closely to our hearts.”
– Kirstyn Lobo, Owner
As you can imagine, we are over the moon about this fantastic opportunity with Physis Ltd. The sponsorship will help towards coverage of essential funds for kit and upkeep of the club, and will make all those differences to develop the standard of team and the standard of play.
Thank you, Physis Ltd!
