Swaffham Town Football Club were contacted around a week ago with regard to an opportunity with a magazine called "Football Focus Magazine" which would see us feature.
It was decided amongst members of the committee that we would not proceed with this option as we did not feel it was the best thing for our football club.
It has been brought to our attention that various individuals from Football Focus magazine have been contacting a variety of our sponsor's explaining that they are doing a spread on our club in turn offering sponsors an opportunity to advertise in the issue for a fee - Let us make it abundantly clear Swaffham Town Football Club has not given any permission for our sponsors to be contacted.
We only had one conversation with Football Focus magazine in which they discussed what they had in mind for our club, no further contact was made with Football Focus and we explained that if we were happy to proceed this would be subject to committee sign off ; as mentioned above we did not proceed with this offer.
Our sponsorship and marketing manager has been in contact with Football Focus today, to ensure that they recall any emails sent to any of our sponsors, they denied contacting anyone, but it has been made abundantly clear that if they have taken any payment or contacted anyone that their wrongdoing will be rectified with immediate effect.
If anyone has been approached or contacted by Football Focus magazine, claiming they are acting on our behalf please email firstname.lastname@example.org
