Supporting local organisations where possible is at the heart of Microsoft Gold Partner, PragmatiQ Solutions. When the opportunity arose to fund free places at the upcoming Soccer Assist Women’s Football Trials, it felt like a natural placement for the business and a great chance to help young women start their scholarship journey in America.
PragmatiQ Solutions, who are based in Milton Keynes, specialise in designing and developing Bespoke CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Systems and Custom Business Solutions, that solve business challenges. These solutions leverage Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform and are tailored around the unique requirements of a business.
The company are pleased to announce their recent partnership with Soccer Assist, offering ten free places to young women within the local community to attend upcoming football trials. This partnership aims to encourage young female athletes who have a talent for the sport and are looking to start their journey to university in America.
Soccer Assist, also based in Milton Keynes, supports young people to obtain a soccer scholarship in the States, where they will study for a degree whilst playing football every day at some of the finest facilities in the country. Before the university process begins, aspiring athletes must attend a trial to assess their abilities.
Stuart Goldwater, Managing Director at PragmatiQ Solutions, said:
“Giving back to causes we believe in is a big part of what PragmatiQ stand for. We want to get involved where we can and always aim to make a difference. When the opportunity came about to sponsor the Women’s Trials, we recognised that it is a fantastic way to support young female athletes who want to get into the sport in a professional capacity.
“Recent events in international sport, such as the US Open (tennis) and the 2019 Women’s World Cup, as well as the upcoming Euros in 2022, demonstrates the standards of athletic talent that we have as a country. We hope this offer encourages young women who have a passion for football to combine education with playing at a high level.”
To be able to support Soccer Assist and young women starting out in this field is a fantastic opportunity that PragmatiQ are very proud of, and they hope to encourage other businesses to expand their reach in the local community where possible.
Tyrelle Mcleod-Bentley, Director at Soccer Assist, said:
“Scholarship opportunities for women are one of the reasons the game is thriving in America, and we are now seeing more and more talent from the UK take advantage of this pathway.
“Having the support of local businesses is a huge help when it comes to spreading the word and giving more students the opportunity to gain an education whilst playing the sport they love at a highly reputable level.
“We are grateful that PragmatiQ not only sponsor our Academy in Milton Keynes but are now also supporting our goal of providing soccer scholarship opportunities to girls in the local community.”
