International investment firm led by Scottish-born entrepreneur Graeme Carling has committed to support the Midlands Amateur Football Association for a further three years, a deal that will see his long-standing support of the organisation extend to a ten-year partnership.

The Carling Group, an organisation with offices in Europe, the Middle East, and United States of America, holds investments in various sectors including renewable energy, real estate, decarbonisation, technology and healthcare. Over the years, the organisation has supported many charitable organisations through its philanthropic endeavours.

The Midlands Amateur Football Association is an affiliate league associated with the Scottish Amateur Football Association with teams representing Dundee, Angus, North-East Fife, and Perthshire regions of Scotland. The financial support provided by The Carling Group contributes to the cost of running the association.

Founder and Chairman of The Carling Group, Graeme Carling commented; “As an organisation we believe in giving to the communities in which we operate. We started our sponsorship and support of the Midlands Amateur Football Association in 2016 and are proud to have extended our commitment which will see our sponsorship extend to 2026. In addition to the large philanthropic causes that The Carling Group supports, supporting local causes continues to be something our organisation is proud of.”

The Carling Group lists children’s diabetes charity, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and Caudwell Children, an organisation founded by Phones4U billionaire John Caudwell to improve the lives of disabled and autistic children, as their corporate charity partners. In 2021 The Carling Group co-founders, Graeme Carling and his wife and partner Leanne, announced they were committing to donate £1million to Caudwell Children over the next decade.
