The NPL, which covers the North and Midlands and operates at tiers seven and eight of English football, has today unveiled premier sports contractor The Slatter Group as its Official Pitch Partner ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The league’s 81 clubs will benefit from roadshows and webinars throughout the season, with personalised support in areas such as bid writing, business case preparation, finance packages and environmental sustainability.

Mark Harris, Chairman, Pitching In Northern Premier League, commented:

“The Slatter Group submitted a standout presentation as part of our tender process. In particular, we were impressed by their commitment to engaging with our clubs to help educate and share best practices in raising standards.”
