By Joe Edwards | Grassroots | Published:

A quartet of football teams have received new strips as part of a sponsorship deal.

Black Country Rangers, Fusion, Ladies and Veterans – all under the Black Country FC banner – have been provided fresh kits by Carling.

Wolverhampton Sunday League Division Four outfit Fusion were set up in 2015 and openly welcome LGBT players.

Rangers play in the West Midlands Premier and sit top of the table after six games.

The ladies are in the Staffordshire Girls and Ladies League, and the Veterans in the Staffordshire Veterans League.

Black Country Fusion founder Skye Stewart said: “This club was built on the values of inclusiveness and we welcome anyone from any background to join.

“As a new supporter of our club, we’re really looking forward to working with Carling this season.

“We hope the local community recognise our new kits and come down to show their support”.

Miranda Osborne, Carling brand director said: “We’re delighted to be able to support Black Country FC.


“When we discovered the story of how the club was founded, it instantly struck a chord.

“We hope the club have a successful season on the pitch in their brand new kits.”

The Carling Made Local initiative sees the lager brand fund a range of local community projetcs across the UK.
