Admaston Juniors FC are looking for sponsorship for their upcoming summer grassroots football tournament

 

We are Admaston Juniors FC. Founded in 1972, we are a two star England Football Accredited junior football club based in Telford, Shropshire.

We promote junior and youth football with teams ranging from under 7 to under 16, giving children and young people a safe and enjoyable environment in which to train, play and develop as footballers and people.

Our focus will always be on giving children and young people a platform to play and enjoy their football, regardless of their ability, but to also allow players an opportunity to showcase their skills. This has resulted in some 20 players over the last 20 years being invited to join professional academies and development centres.

The club and teams are run by a dedicated group of volunteer committee members, managers and coaches, many of them parents, who carry out a range of demanding but very fulfilling roles.

 

Target Audience

Children aged 6 to 15 and their families and friends.

Key Dates and Timings

Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th August (9am to approx 6pm both days).

Specific Opportunity Details

Admaston Juniors FC are holding our second annual summer grassroots football tournament this August, over the weekend of 12th and 13th. The tournament, organised solely by volunteers from within the club, will feature competitions for eight different age groups, from under 7 up to under 14.

The tournament is run to both help raise funds for the club itself and cover the costs of keeping a grassroots club running (meeting the financial demands of pitch hire, facility upkeep, equipment, club insurance, kit for teams and so on), as well as providing an opportunity for children from both Telford and across the West Midlands and opportunity to play more football!

Over the two days of the tournament there are spaces for 80 teams to take part, meaning 1000 children can take part with their families and friends in attendance to support them. This is an increase on last year, when the event catered for 500 players.

We make the events family orientated and, whilst giving the teams a competitive environment in which to enjoy their football, make sure that the biggest factor is having a safe, welcoming environment for children to enjoy their football.

We are looking for an event sponsor/sponsors who would be willing to help support the tournament and help in the covering of costs that range from facility hire, marking or pitches, purchasing of medals and trophies, use of an online scoring app, printing of an event programme or provision of an online equivalent, first aid, referee fees, portable toilets etc.

In exchange for financial help in running the event, we are willing to include you branding/logo on all our event materials (such as programmes and information packs), event banners and signage, pitch markings and all promotional/advertising across our website and social media, as well as other grassroots website and social channels. We can also distribute any of your own printed media to those in attendance and display any advertising (such as feather flags, banners, boards) around the site across the weekend.

Our previous sponsors have also been included in local newspaper stories (https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/local-hubs/telford/2022/07/25/summer-tournament-attracts-500-young-soccer-players/) that reported on the success of our 2022 event.

We would also be happy to supply pictures for your personal use in any in-house media, social channels or press releases to further take advantage of you sponsorship and assistance in making our event a success.

We hope such support and promotion of being involved in the community will be mutually beneficial. I welcome any discussions regarding this and look forward to hearing from you.
