Omni Freight Services of Felixstowe is to sponsor the Suffolk FA Premier Cup for the next three years.

The competition will be known as the Suffolk FA Premier Cup sponsored by Omni Freight Services Ltd, starting from the 2015-16 season.

The Felixstowe-based import and export operator is a sister company of Globex Freight Management, which has sponsored the Suffolk FA Youth Referees’ Academy for the past three years.

Although run as two separate companies, Omni and Globex share the same personnel and the same office in Parker Avenue in Felixstowe.

Omni already sponsors Felixstowe & Walton United, who play in the Premier Cup, and sponsorship of the competition was a natural progression, according to director Shaun Rudduck.

“Our three-year agreement shows a commitment to support Suffolk FA and the local clubs at grassroots level in the community.
