Leading concrete roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles (RRT), is sponsoring Odisha FC for a third consecutive season, after extending their love for football overseas last year.
Odisha FC was established in 2019 in partnership with the Government of Odisha and finished in 6th place in the Indian Super League last season. The club aims to develop and promote football across Odisha and works closely with global businesses to reach out to the communities at the grassroots level and get involved in projects, local schools, and initiatives.
Russell Roof Tiles has been able to support the club, which currently competes in the top flight of Indian Football, by providing funds to ensure that under-privileged children have the necessary kits, boots, and other equipment needed to take action on the pitch.
In light of the renewed partnership, Managing Director of Russell Roof Tiles, Andrew Hayward, recently visited the House of Lords alongside CEO/Club President of Odisha FC, Raj Athwal, to discuss further investment opportunities in Odisha.
Raj Athwal, President of Odisha FC, said: “We could not be more thankful for the support that Russell Roof Tiles provided us with last season. Contributions from our sponsors allowed us to support under-privileged children with everything they need to play the beautiful game that we call football.
“Not only this, but it also helps us to continue running community initiatives across Odisha, which is something we are very passionate about.
“We very much look forward to continuing our partnership for a third season and seeing what new opportunities it can bring for our club and the state.”
Russell Roof Tiles also continued their sponsorship for Burton Albion Football Club earlier this summer as part of the 2023/24 season, a long-term partnership that has been in place for the past eight years.
Russell Roof Tiles is a leading independent pitched roof tile manufacturer supplying products for the top housebuilders and high-profile social housing and commercial projects. The company produces thousands of tiles every week that are used on roofs across the country, by premier housebuilders and developers.
