U's at the heart of the local business community
Oxford United Football Club sits in the middle of the Thames Valley both geographically and in business terms. We are pleased to announce that the club has formed an agreement that will see the U’s become one of Oxfordshire Chamber of Commerce’s main partners.
Staff will attend networking events and talk with local businesses, while the Chamber will work with the club’s team in promoting the commercial and community opportunities to its members. Both organisations will be working together on a number of joint initiatives to drive membership for both the Chamber and the successful United in Business network.
Oxford United’s Head of Corporate Andy Wooldridge said: “This is excellent news and we look forward to expanding the partnership we have with Oxfordshire Chamber of Commerce. It is fast growing and innovative and represents a huge number of local companies. Building closer links with our local chamber was one of my key objectives when I recently joined the club. This perfectly demonstrates the club’s commitment to supporting the local business community and we are really appreciative of the support that we are getting from businesses not just in Oxford but across the entire Thames Valley.”
Peter Smith, President, Oxfordshire Chamber of Commerce:
“We are delighted to be working with Oxford United on this unique collaboration which will support the ambitions of both organisations.”
Oxfordshire Chamber is part of the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group and works with businesses across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and Swindon to help them achieve their full business potential. The organisation does this by offering members a range of services including business advice, networking events, training and international trade support.
