Grassroots sports teams in Hull and East Yorkshire are receiving vital funding from local cloud services provider Giacom.

Giacom is already a sponsor of Hull City Football Club and has now extended its commitment to sport, with donations to a series of community clubs and teams. Giacom invited staff to nominate sports teams to receive funding and each recipient has a personal connection to a member of the team at the cloud specialist. Teams to benefit from the funding include Hessle Rangers Girls U13s football team, Hull Knights Ice Hockey and Kingston Boxing Club in Hull.

Tom Buil, lead software developer at Giacom, has a daughter playing for Hessle Rangers Girls U13s. Giacom’s support has enabled the club to own their its kit, complete with company branding. He said: “For the team to have their own branded kit is really special and I know it will mean so much to all the players. Grassroots sport plays such an important role in the lives of so many young people and I’m really pleased that Giacom values the positive impact it can have. I’m looking forward to seeing how the team gets on in the upcoming season, wearing their brand new Giacom kit.”

A total of 11 teams and clubs will benefit from the funding, having been nominated by employees of the businesses.

East Yorkshire recipients of the funding include Hessle Rangers Girls U13s, Hull Knights Ice Hockey, Kingston Boxing Club, Hedon Rangers Blues U6s football team and South Yorkshire Referees.

Further afield, Giacom is also providing funding to Whitley Bay FC U11s football team, based in Tyne and Wear, Hapton Football Club, in Lancashire, Leigh Ramblers White and Leigh Rockets football teams, based in Southend, Essex, Winchcombe Youth Town U13s football team, in Cheltenham, Culcheth Eagles Rugby League, who play in Warrington and Horwich St Mary’s football team in Lancashire.

Giacom has sponsored Hull City since 2020, including two seasons as principal partner with the company’s brand on the front of the team’s shirts. In June, it was announced Giacom would be Hull City’s new training wear sponsor.

Giacom’s East Yorkshire office is at Priory Park in Hull. The company provides cloud services to IT companies which support thousands of businesses across the UK.
