Motherwell Football Club is delighted to announce they have extended their partnership with Blue Triangle.
Blue Triangle will continue as official front of shirt sponsor for our women’s team until the end of season 2023/24.
A social care organisation and national charity, Blue Triangle empowers people to thrive by providing trauma-informed support in shared accommodation services and in communities across Scotland. 70% of those entering Blue Triangle services move on to their own tenancy, helping to break the homelessness cycle.

The Breakthrough team benefit greatly from being integrated with the community as the football club do so much for those most in need of support in North Lanarkshire and beyond. In the last year, Breakthrough have supported over 270 people in the community, with 66 of those attending SMART Recovery meetings.
