The Ricki Herbert Football Academy is pleased to announce its new major sponsor will be Realize, a healthy food brand that plans to support our efforts to develop top young footballers.
Realize is part of the Treasure8 corporation, a San Francisco-based food innovation and technology company on a mission to solve the nutritional challenges and environmental stresses of a growing global population.
The Treasure8 team develops, produces and deploys game-changing, delicious food ingredients, processes and products that are healthier for people and the planet. They also create engaging consumer experiences that encourage better food choices.
“We believe Realize is the ideal partner for our academy because, like us, they are striving to be the best they can be, and have a total commitment to finding better ways to promote health,” RHFA founder Ricki Herbert said.
Herbert said Realize’s sponsorship would support all the academy’s teams and programmes and specifically help the academy’s efforts to take touring teams abroad.
Players and their parents would quickly become aware of Realize through branding on academy apparel and vehicles (pictured).
“We’re looking forward to a lengthy and beneficial partnership that helps where it matters most – the development of young players,” Herbert said.
