Harrod Sport, previously know as Harrod UK, first supplied goals to the UEFA Euro at Wembley Stadium in 1996. Since then, the company has gone on to build a 20-year relationship with the stadium and has supplied a plethora of equipment throughout that time. Most recently, our FIFA Approved Stadium Pro Goals were used throughout UEFA Women's EURO's 2022. From Wembley to Brighton & Hove Albion, our goals were at the forefront of every stage of this much anticipated tournament.
Here's what our Managing Director, Stephanie Harrod had to say about this momentous occasion:
"We were delighted to have our goals supplied to the UEFA Women's Euros 2022. Our congratulations go to not only the current team and staff, but also everybody who has played a part over the years to help get Women's and Girls' football to where it is now.
We are incredibly proud to support local Women's and Girls' football and play a small part in providing more opportunities for women and girls involved in football. The female pathway is stronger than ever!"
Harrod Sport are long-time supporters of local women's football, which is highlighted through our ongoing relationship with Norfolk FA, becoming the lead sponsor of the Harrod Sport Women's Cup and the Harrod Sport Women's and Girls Cup, a female-only summer tournament held at the Football Development Centre in Bowthorpe. On top of this, our Finesse coaching equipment has also been supplied to support the recently launched Coaches Club. Find out more about our involvement here.
England's lionesses first ever tournament victory was helped by Norfolk's very own Lauren Hemp who put in another impressive performance for England. It was the former North Walsham Town and Norwich City player's corner that led to the all-important 110th minute winning goal from Chloe Kelly, sealing the historical victory and crowning England the champions of Europe!
Everybody at Harrod Sport could not be more proud of our incredible Lionesses!
