Seat Unique has become the Official Sponsor for AFC Croydon's women's football team, bringing premium experiences to non-league football.

Seat Unique is thrilled to announce a partnership with AFC Croydon, to become the official sponsor of the club’s women’s football team, whilst paying forward to the community it calls home.

Seat Unique was born in Croydon in 2019. From humble origins as a start-up of just four staff, the company has now grown to a business of more than 50 across Europe. But Croydon is always close to Seat Unique’s heart. As an inclusive, community-orientated team, AFC Croydon’s values are something that the premium ticketing company holds close to its own.

With women’s football reaching new heights in recent years, Seat Unique is proud to be sponsoring the AFC Croydon women’s football team and hopes to work with the club to develop the women’s game further. It’s an exciting chance to support grassroots women’s football, creating new opportunities for women and girls in Croydon.

Seat Unique’s apprenticeship programme will be offered to young people in the area, giving them a chance to break into the world of tech, and with it also gain experience within the live events industry. The overarching aim is to empower young people to take a step into this exciting and rapidly growing industry.

By building this partnership, Seat Unique and AFC Croydon will be able to put on unforgettable experiences never before seen at Mayfield Stadium, which will also benefit the surrounding area and inspire more young people to get involved with sport.

Phillipa Hicks, Co-Founder and Head of Product at  Seat Unique said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Croydon AFC and giving back to the local area. By supporting women’s football, we’ll be part of a legacy that is just getting started.

As a female sports fan, I’m incredibly excited for Seat Unique to be involved with the women’s squad and hope that our partnership will go from strength to strength. I can’t wait to go down and see the women play.”

Danny Young, Chairman at AFC Croydon, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Seat Unique as the official sponsor of our women's football team at AFC Croydon. This partnership marks an exciting opportunity for the development of women's football, and we are proud to have the support of a company that shares our values of inclusivity and community. As a club, we are committed to uplifting the Croydon community, and this collaboration with Seat Unique will undoubtedly contribute to that goal. We are especially proud of our women's team, who are league and cup winners, and we are excited to work together with Phillipa and Robin's vision for Seat Unique to further develop the women's game. This partnership will undoubtedly create new opportunities for women and girls in Croydon, and we are looking forward to the unforgettable experiences that will be brought to Mayfield Stadium through this collaboration.
