Wokingham’s Sultan Balti Palace is supporting the return of local football with its sponsorship of the Bracknell Sunday League’s Supplementary Cup competitions.
The Sultan Senior Cup and Sultan Junior Cup competitions, which will kick-off during April, are modelled on the ‘Champions League’ format where teams have been placed into groups of four or five. Group winners will progress into a last-eight knockout format ending with a cup final to decide the winners of each competition.
The Covid-19 pandemic meant the regular league season was curtailed however, the League and its teams will play its traditional League Senior and Junior cup competitions as well as this additional supplementary competition to provide some much-needed football for players, following ongoing Government and Football Association guidance.
As well as providing trophies for the winners, runners-up and match officials who are involved in the cup finals, the Sultan Balti Palace’s sponsorship deal will see players, their families, officials and supporters of Bracknell Sunday League teams being able to take advantage of exclusive money-off vouchers and discounts.
