Welcome to the AGL Arena

Freight forwarding and supply chain management experts unveiled as new football ground sponsor. 

Felixstowe & Walton Utd have announced that Astral Global Logistics (AGL) has agreed on a two-year naming partnership. Following the official unveiling ceremony on Friday, 29th July, the stadium will be known as The AGL Arena.

Based at Dellwood Avenue, Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club, aka ‘The Seasiders’, was formed in 2000. Over the last 22 years, the club has demonstratively supported grassroots football. It also provides a thriving social community and nurtures talent and enthusiasm from the mixed junior teams to the first team currently playing in the Isthmian League North.

Adam Gosling, General Manager of AGL, said: “The work that the football club does throughout the community with the junior section, football academy, through to the senior side was a key consideration when we were discussing partnering with the club; and the synergies and ambitions of the football club are very much aligned with our business model. We were also impressed by its commitment to women’s football. There’s no better time to be involved in the women’s game, and if inspiration is needed, you can watch Ipswich Town Ladies here at home week in and week out or celebrate with the nation the Lioness’s magnificent win at Euro 2022.

“On a personal note, I am excited to be able to return to my roots and support my home football ground. We are proud to become stadium sponsors of the football club and look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Formed in 2021, Felixstowe-based Astral Global Logistics offers best practices while maintaining the highest level of customer service. Using both traditional methods and modern technology to create innovative ideas that deliver bespoke solutions to meet customers’ needs, it provides excellent service delivery through cost-effective solutions.
