Moody Logistics is proving its commitment to North East sport with its sponsorship of local football team, Wideopen FC, for the third consecutive year.
The Cramlington-based firm will sponsor the Senior team’s strip, which this year will feature branding from its sister company, Heathline Accident Repair Centre, across two seasons.

Moody Logistics has established a close relationship with the team through employee Mark Fisher, who was named the company’s Driver of the Year for 2018. He has coached the team there for the last ten years since his son joined the club aged eight. Mark is currently coaching the club’s Under 17s team, as well as his son and fellow players in the Heathline Accident Repair Centre-backed Senior team. Gavin Cape, Engineering Director at Heathline Accident Repair Centre, said: “We’re delighted to continue the sponsorship of Wideopen FC this year with Heathline Accident Repair Centre branding being featured on the club’s strip. It’s extremely rewarding to help the next generation of North East footballers develop and achieve their goals. “As the club compete with teams across the Northumberland area, the sponsorship deal is a great opportunity for us to promote Heathline Accident Repair Centre’s services to football supporters across the region.” Mark Fisher said: “Sponsorship from local businesses is fundamental for providing the necessary resources and training for our football teams. All the players and committee members at the club are extremely grateful for the ongoing support from Moody Logistics, and the team is even more determined to make them proud this season.”
