Sodexo to sponsor Women's PFA Awards until 2018

The Women's Professional Football Association (PFA) Awards will be sponsored by Sodexo until 2018.

The 43rd PFA Awards ceremony took place at Grosvenor House London on 24 April and saw Chris Bray, CEO for sports & leisure, Sodexo UK & Ireland hand out two awards on the night.

He presented Izzy Christiansen (pictured), the Manchester City and England attacking midfielder, with the PFA Women's Players' Player of the Year title. Meanwhile Beth Mead, the forward for Sunderland Ladies and the England under-23 team, walked away with the Women's PFA Young Player of the Year award.

Bray said: "We're proud to sponsor the Women's PFA Players' Player of the Year and Women's PFA Young Player of the Year, which is a tremendous fit with our existing partnerships in professional football and our commitment to gender balance.

"At Sodexo, we are genuinely committed to gender equality. As well as being the right thing to do, our global research shows that where our teams are more gender balanced they are more engaged, productive and profitable, so there's also a clear business case.

"We look forward to sponsoring these awards for the next three years, and of course congratulations to Izzy, Beth and all the nominees."

The Sodexo sports & leisure portfolio includes provision of retail, hospitality, sales and conference services at the stadiums of Newcastle United FC and Everton FC in the Premier League and Brighton & Hove Albion FC and Huddersfield Town AFC in the Championship.
