Goalfix is to become the new title sponsor of Goalball UK’s Club and Player of the Season awards.

In addition to the awards being known as the Goalfix Club and Player of the Season, the specialist supplier of disability sports equipment will also award the winners a bundle of premium goalball equipment.

The new partnership is an extension on the existing agreement which has seen Goalfix be the title sponsor of the Goalfix Cup for five years. While the working relationship between Goalball UK and Goalfix dates back a decade to the World Championships in 2010, when Goalfix supplied the equipment for the landmark tournament.

The Goalfix Club of the Season award is the latest addition to Goalball UK’s end of season awards. It was added to the programme to celebrate the monumental effort made by clubs up and down the country, both on and off the court.

Having Goalfix involved with these awards, which are the highlight of the goalball calendar for many, underpins their commitment to the sport and eagerness to support its growth in the UK.
