“Loosemores Solicitors has a long-standing involvement in Welsh football, including as trusted legal advisors and committed sponsors. We are delighted to reinforce those well-established links through our new sponsorship of one of Wales’ oldest cup competitions, which was first won by Builth in 1894.
We look forward to working with the SWFA to promote the Loosemores SWFA Senior Cup this season.”
Mark Adams, General Secretary of the South Wales Football Association commented:

This deal with a firm who also has a long history in South Wales is a fitting link-up to take the competition through to the future’.
