The Football Association of Wales has today (28 July) announced a new brand identity and title sponsors for Tier 3 of the men’s domestic game.
Sixty-four clubs from across the country make up the regional divisions, under a new identity of the Ardal Leagues.
Ardal Northern consists of the Ardal NE and Ardal NW divisions, whilst Ardal Southern includes Ardal SE and Ardal SW.
In the bilingual naming system, Ardal translates as ‘Region’ and represents the four quarters of the country that feed into the national leagues of Cymru North and Cymru South, which in turn provides teams to the Cymru Premier at the pinnacle of the football pyramid.
The Ardal Leagues are being supported by new title sponsor partners that have been revealed for the first time alongside the unveiling on the new brand identity.
Ardal Northern is sponsored by Lock Stock Self Storage, a family run business that is the largest self-storage company in the UK.
“Lock Stock have a tradition of supporting local football across North and Mid Wales,” said Shon Powell, Director of Lock Stock Self Storage. “We are glad to continue that by sponsoring the new Ardal NW and Ardal NE divisions. This level of football is the base that provides the strength of the game in Wales and as a company that has a presence across the region we know the importance of these clubs to their communities and are proud to continue that support.”
Chirk have been placed in the Ardal NE which covers Mid Wales & North East Wales
