The Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) Women’s Rugby Union team are seeking sponsorship to help them as they build the Women’s game within the North West.

 

MMU Women’s Rugby Union – I am writing to explore the possibility of a mutually beneficial partnership that can create a lasting impact on Women’s Rugby at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Before I delve into the details, allow me to share a little about myself and our endeavour. I am the chair of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Women’s Rugby Union. We are looking to gain support from like-minded companies in order to build the Women’s game in the Northwest. We are lucky enough to be affiliated with Sale Sharks Women and are the sole university to officially feed into the club. We are an enthusiastic team dedicated to promoting and supporting the development of all women’s sports. We are aiming this year to get as many girls into rugby as we can. We have formed a new 2XV team this year, to allow for more women at the University to get involved. We are also supporting the University’s own program to get as many students moving as possible. Our initiative has gained significant traction and attention in recent months, and we believe that with the support of forward-thinking sponsors like yourself, we can take it to new heights.

We are looking for organisations that work within local communities. Your commitment to the health and wellbeing of the community is very important to our core values as a club, and we believe that by joining forces, we can magnify our collective impact.

By partnering with us, your generous support will help us provide essential resources and equipment, ensuring that we have the necessary tools to maximize our impact. Specifically, your sponsorship will go towards the development and procurement of high-quality kits that are vital to the implementation of our initiatives. We are looking for a one-year sponsorship for the 2023/24 season.

In return for your valuable contribution, we are committed to offering our sponsors a range of benefits that will elevate your brand and reinforce your commitment to corporate social responsibility:

Enhanced Brand Visibility: Your organization’s logo will be prominently featured on our team leisurewear, which 35+ individuals will wear around campus and Manchester City Centre. We also travel to away fixtures in the leisurewear, highlighting your company to the likes of York, Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, and Lancaster. As a team, we take part in the National Cup, meaning that we can also display your company nationwide. Along with promotional materials, and social media platforms, providing you with increased brand exposure to our growing audience.

Exclusive Recognition: We will publicly acknowledge your sponsorship during our events, media engagements, and volunteer engagement programs showcasing your dedication to making a meaningful difference.

We understand the importance of building strong and long-lasting partnerships, and we are committed to providing our sponsors with regular updates on our progress, effective communication, and recognition for their support. We believe in creating a win-win situation where both parties can thrive and make a real difference.

We would love the opportunity to discuss this further with you and explore how we can collaborate to create a significant impact.
Thank you for considering our partnership proposal.
