GFA in search for a new sponsor

Guernsey football
Cable and Wireless' Sure Mobile brand sponsored the GFA this season

The Guernsey Football Association has said it may have to cut back on the football it takes part in if it cannot find a new sponsor.

Phone company Cable & Wireless will not renew their five-year association with the GFA, when it finishes at the end of the season.

And the main backer of the island's women's team, Northern Trust, has also decided not to renew it's deal.

The GFA has no sponsors lined up to replace the two firms.

"The board will have sit down and have a look at its finances and prioritise the football that it puts on," GFA chairman Mark le Tissier told BBC Guernsey.

"If we are unsuccessful [in finding new sponsors] football will continue, just in a different way.

"There may be things that we may not be able to do that we have done in the past," he added.
