Gateley plc and the Sport and Recreation Alliance have announced a new corporate partnership.

The partnership will see Gateley plc become the main legal provider for the Alliance, an umbrella organisation for the governing and representative bodies of sport and recreation in the UK, representing 320 members, including the FA and UK Athletics.

Commenting on the partnership, John Burns, head of sports at Gateley plc said: “Our team is already a member of the Legal Panel Framework for UK sports governing bodies. We recognise the vital role that the Alliance plays within sport and we are excited at the prospect of getting more involved with the wide range of work they do.

“We have experience in dealing with a whole range of sports clients from leading Premiership Football clubs and International Governing Bodies to smaller National Governing Bodies and individual athletes; and so I am proud that our work within sport has been recognised by the Alliance.”

The Sport and Recreation Alliance exists to support its members – the governing bodies of sport and recreation – in promoting participation and with their general running. This includes providing their members with services and advice, representing their views to decision makers, promoting the interests of sport and recreation and campaigning on the issues that most affect its members.
