Football Trade Directory

Happy New Year! Here's what Football Trade Directory has in store for 2024


As we kick-start 2024 we'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and we're looking forward to a great year.

We may only be in January but we've already got a busy schedule of Events booked in, as well as making some changes to the Directory and continuing to provide our email marketing and consultancy services.
So take a look below at everything we have to offer and if there's anything you'd like to find out more about please do contact us at or call us on 01772 875 184.
Networking and Partner Events
We'll be running four of our traditional Football and Business Networking Events across the year, and despite the increase in costs for venue hire etc we're committed to keeping our events free for club and business delegates, as well as freezing our exhibiting prices for another year at £400 (£300 for FTD Members)
  • Preston North End, Deepdale Stadium- Thursday 25th April: 10.30am-3pm
  • Sheffield United, Bramall Lane- Thursday 4th July, 10.30am-3pm

  • Hampden Park, Glasgow- Thursday 2nd November, 10.30am-3pm

We're also hosting events in partnership with both the Northern Premier League and Midland Football League.

For a number of years we have worked with the NPL to host an exhibition as part of their AGM, and we're delighted to be continuing this for another year.

We're also excited to partner with the MFL and to host an event alongside a fundraising presentation from the FA.

  • Northern Premier League AGM Event, Blackpool Winter Gardens- Saturday 22nd June, 9am-12pm 
  • Midland Football League Exhibition Event, The Bescott Stadium Walsall- Thursday 21st March, 5pm-9pm


We're entering the sixteenth year of the Football Trade Directory and we're planning on some big changes to help develop the Directory as a resource and improve it's value for businesses who are listed.

After an incredible response to the publication of our downloadable Digital version, which receives thousands of hits every month, we wanted to expand on this by making the Directory more interactive.

We will be updating the Directory on a more regular basis and allowing businesses the flexibility to advertise and list their brands periodically to maximise impact for a seasonal or short term offer.

Keep an eye out for more news on this later in the year.

Membership, Email Marketing & Consultancy

We'll be continuing to provide businesses with the promotion and exposure to clubs officials via our Membership, which not only gives companies enhanced listings but access to our newsletter anc social followers to help promote their brand.

We worked with a number of companies providing either email marketing or consultancy services last year, with many continuing to work with us in 2024 to get their business directly in front of key decision makers.

With flexible packages tailored to the needs of your business, both of these services are proven to help businesses find new customers and sales.
