CULLOMPTON, DEVON – Cullompton-based advertising and marketing agency Adopstar has just signed on as the official sponsor of the Cullompton Rangers Football Club. Speeds Meadow, where the club is situated, will now be known as Adopstar Park.

The story of Cullompton Rangers began in 1945 and the club has an established legacy of being an important part of the local community. While Adopstar only opened its doors in 2010, the company has quickly gained a reputation for being community-minded and passionate about local sports development. “The partnership between Adopstar and the Cullompton Rangers Football Club is a natural extension of the contribution we have made towards local sports,” explained Adopstar’s managing director, Theresa Benson. “During the last year, we have sponsored shirts for the under-18 Cullompton Rangers Football Club and organised and sponsored the rebranding of the rugby posts at the Cullompton Rugby Football Supporters Club.”

Cullompton’s football community is a vibrant and active one, with numerous teams in the area. The first team plays in the South West Peninsula East Division, while the second team plays in the Devon and Exeter Football League. In addition, the Cullompton Rangers have set up various youth teams for players ranging from six to 16 years of age. The club itself consists of four football pitches with a clubhouse and a magnificent set of changing room facilities that were built in 2010.

The club also has a healthy social component, and the main hall of the newly christened Adopstar Park hosts a wide variety of functions. Going forward, the Adopstar team will work hand in hand with the Cullompton Rangers committee to make residents of Cullompton aware of what the football club is and encourage them to visit, get involved and make use of the facilities on offer in every way possible.

The Adopstar team would like to acknowledge the remarkable contributions of Marcus Scott, who has, until recently, been the general secretary and groundsman for the Cullompton Rangers Football Club. It is thanks to his vision and efforts that the club is such a tremendous asset to the Cullompton community.

“One of the issues that Adopstar is most passionate about is encouraging young people to get involved in sporting activities,” concluded Benson. “We look forward to being part of the next stage of the Cullompton Rangers’ journey.”
