The Premier League (PL) team, Southampton FC have joined forces with the outdoor activity engagement firm, New Forest Activities.
Following the affiliation, New Forest Activities has been named the official regional partner of Southampton FC.
The partnership will focus on how to build the process of fan engagement for the team, create some team-building activities for the players as well as the academy players that will help them to gel among themselves, and can unite them to play as a unit.
New Forest Activities has now emerged as one of the largest providers of outdoor activities. Founded in 2003 as a small canoeing business, the business offers a wide scope of activities, both on the land and water, that also includes rope courses, archery, and kayaking, and most importantly, it can also provide the best experience for a team building session.
Sam Sutton, Co-Owner of New Forest Activities, said, “We’re delighted to partner with Southampton Football Club. Providing an inclusive place where people can be active, enjoy the outdoors, build relationships and develop personal skills is what we do. These values are directly aligned with those of the club and with a history of working together, it makes sense now to take that to the next level. We very much look forward to providing amazing experiences and development opportunities to the clubs extended networks over the months and years ahead.”

The Club has been using the Centre on a number of occasions recently with the Academy U10s squad taking part in a bespoke team building day, and a group of Academy coaches also utilising the Centre’s facilities & expertise as part of their professional development programme. Developing a Regional Partnership has been a natural progression, and we look forward to supporting their business goals over the coming months and into next season.”
