Appleby is one of the world’s leading offshore law firms. They have offices in the key offshore jurisdictions including Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius, and Seychelles, as well as a presence in the key international financial centres of Hong Kong and Shanghai. Since 2004, Appleby has been the sponsor of the Bermuda Football Association's (BFA's) Youth Program, which covers both our Children's (ages 7-13) and Youth (ages 14-17) Divisions. Appleby’s sponsorship and support has enabled the BFA to organize coaching, administration and referee development programs conducted by local and overseas instructors. These programs target and assist in the development of all of the children, both male and female that participate in our Children's and Youth Leagues on a weekly basis. Appleby’s continued sponsorship has enabled the BFA, via its Youth Committee, to organize pre-season assessment matches and present awards for all Youth Division champions. Through Appleby's support, the BFA is able to provide referees for all matches in theYouth Divisions, thereby allowing the coaches to focus solely on coaching and improving the players. It is without a doubt that Appleby has been a valued partner and a driving force behind the successful administration of our Youth Programs that each year attract in excess of 1500 youth players, many coaches, referees, administrators and fans. The BFA thanks Appleby for its investment in Bermuda's young people.
