Mars Wrigley UK, the British subsidiary of the US confectionary giant, has renewed its partnership with the England men’s, women’s, and para soccer teams.

The renewal, struck with the Football Association (FA) national governing body, will be activated through the Kind and Extra brands in the 2023 and 2024 seasons, respectively. They take the place of the Snickers brand.

The brands join an extensive portfolio of partners to the FA, which also includes the likes of NIKE, EE, Budweiser, Coca-Cola, and Disney, among numerous others.

Mars has been partnered with the FA since 2009, with the last renewal between the two coming in 2018.

Navin Singh, the FA’s commercial director, said: “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Mars Wrigley with a renewed focus on Kind and Extra. This evolving partnership aligns perfectly with our passion to encourage balanced lifestyles.

“We thank Mars Wrigley for their continued support across our England teams and we look forward to working together over the coming years.”
