We are looking for sponsors to work with us to grow the football club and improve our reach in the local community. For the football team, we want to move up the non-league pyramid and looking for partners to guide us through a potential rapid growth period while not forgetting our community roots
Our target audience is the local community. We are keen to reach out to everyone. In terms of the wider picture, again we want to offer something to everyone.
Key Dates and Timings
In the short term, we are active during the standard football season of July to May. Traditionally, June is our down time for ground maintenance, but we have been known to host events during this time. It’s our wish to offer our ground all year round for community events
Specific Opportunity Details
We need sponsorship through volunteer expertise, hours and/or financial support as we grow the club. In return, we offer a partnership that will be prominent via our social media outlets (Facebook and twitter), website, local press, and local radio.
Features and Benefits
For any partner, we would offer social media, club website, local press and radio exposure.
In addition, depending on the agreement we would offer pitchside advertising, partial and full ground naming rights, kit sponsorship.
For match days, we would offer hospitality tickets and associated refreshments. Non match days, we would offer the ground for partner events (e.g. department football games or family days).
We work with Ibstock Brick, Coalville Times, Hermitage Radio and a number of small local businesses to raise the profile of the club and these local businesses
We are looking for expertise and volunteer time to improve our existing governance and marketing efforts. Financially, we would be looking for investment up to £4k per year
