Newcastle University Women’s Rugby Club are looking for sponsorship as their club continues to grow.

 

Newcastle University Women’s Rugby Club are a university club competing in BUCS with 2 teams, 1st XV Women’s Premier North and 2nd XV Women’s Northern Tier 3. Our growing club currently consists of over 90 members and a large group of high-quality coaches consisting of our head coach, strength and conditioning coaches and our performance analysis team working with both teams. We regularly recruit from the university cohort and have a high turnout of girls for our bi-weekly training and match days. Funds that we receive through membership and sponsorship go towards match kit, subcoats, and training equipment to help us be more competitive in our respective leagues.

 

Key Dates and Timings

We are looking for a sponsor for the academic year September 2023 - June 2024. This would cover our BUCS Rugby Union season, and the Rugby 7s season - meaning brand exposure across the country, throughout the year and in a huge number of fixtures and tournaments with your logo displayed on our kit.

Specific Opportunity Details

Women's rugby is a fast-growing sport with dedicated athletes who are passionate about the game. By sponsoring a women's rugby team, you'll be helping to provide opportunities for these athletes to compete at the highest level, travel to tournaments, and improve their skills. With O2, TikTok, HSBC and many more major brands recognising the prominence and becoming heavily involved in sponsorships in the sport, supporting a University Premier team and our talented players has a number of benefits, namely:

- Exposure for your brand: Your logo will be prominently displayed on the team's kit, as well as on their website and social media channels. We have a large following on Instagram, and are growing our LinkedIn and Facebook presence.

- Positive association: By supporting women's rugby, you'll be associated with a sport that values teamwork, determination, and hard work.

- Community involvement: Sponsoring a local women's rugby team shows your commitment to your community and your support for local sports programs.

- Networking opportunities: You'll have the chance to connect with other sponsors, team members, and fans at games and events.

- Pride in supporting women's sports: You'll be making a difference in the lives of female athletes and helping to promote gender equality in sports.

Previous sponsors include Aldi and Nando's which have both been very successful, and we look forward to what a partnership with you could bring!

Investment

We have a number of investment options, from covering the cost of match transport and BUCS membership, to providing new kit or supporting our top players on coaching qualifications.
