Quedgeley Wanderers is an England Football club accredited with 2 stars, situated at Waterwells Sports Centre, GL2 2AG.. The first team competes in the Gloucestershire County Football League, while the reserves play in the Stroud and District Football League. Both teams participate in home and away fixtures across various regions, including Gloucester, Bristol, Forest of Dean, Cheltenham, Stroud, and Cirencester. As a club sponsor, your brand would be promoted throughout these regions during matches. This includes exposure when away teams and their fans visit our home ground, which features our main pitch surrounded by advertising boards, providing additional visibility for your company. The club also has four other pitches, maintained by volunteers, which include another full-size pitch and three youth pitches. Each weekend, we draw over 350 individuals to our matches, from the 20+ boys/mixed youth teams to the 7 girls’ teams. As one of Gloucester’s largest and most successful clubs, we are committed to offering a safe and welcoming environment for grassroots football for ages 5 to over 70. Our community includes youth and senior teams, veterans (over 35s), a walking football group, and a ladies “Just Play” group. In line with our development plan, we are actively inviting more adult females to join, aiming to establish a new Ladies team for the Gloucestershire Women’s County League. We are dedicated to the club’s growth, enhancing our player base, volunteer involvement, and facilities.

Target Audience

The target audience may include parents observing their children in competitive sports, as well as club enthusiasts and the families of players and team management.

Key Dates and Timings

Our competitive season begins in September, yet pre-season training is already underway, and we're preparing for pre-season friendly matches. We're seeking sponsorship for new home and away kits, as well as club polo shirts, with the sponsorship package extending over a two-year period. The polo shirts, worn by club representatives on match days and in public, will prominently display the sponsor's logo on the front, offering considerable exposure to the sponsor among the general public.
