Hill Osborne continues as Official Partner of AFC Business Club
We are proud to continue our role as the Official Partner of the AFC Business Club.
On 10th February, we sponsored the Chairman’s Luncheon at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium – a day after the 100th anniversary commemorating women getting the vote. More females being involved in football was the topic on the agenda.
More than 50 business delegates gathered in the club’s Bubbles Champagne Lounge for the second such event hosted by Cherries’ chairman Jeff Mostyn and organised by AFC Business, the club’s commercial arm.
They heard keynote speaker, renowned sports administrator Debbie Jevans, talk of her belief that equal opportunity should be the norm and that diversity was better for individuals and organisations.
Debbie, a director of Sport England, the Football League and the Invictus Games and expert adviser to the International Olympic Committee, said: "Diversity is good, a positive thing and should be embraced.
Jeff Mostyn said: "We are so proud of our equality programme. As a football club we are totally and utterly committed to equality and we are certainly not just ticking boxes.
"There are very few women in Premier League boardrooms but change will happen and we will be part of that."
Jeff added: "I often say that together anything is possible and I would like to praise the great strides Steve Cuss and his team have made. Their work has been just incredible.
"Young girls can aspire to be a footballer and AFC Bournemouth is providing a dream and a vision for them to do just that. It would be fantastic if we were one day in the Women's Super League."
Join us at the next event, at the AFC Business Breakfast on Wednesday, March 14, at 7.30am at Vitality Stadium.
