Rushden & Higham United Football Club are looking for sponsorship to support the club in the upcoming season(s)

 

Here at Rushden & Higham United we are a volunteer-run Football Club in Northamptonshire. The Club currently plays in the Spartan South Midlands League Division 1.

Formed in 2007 by a merger of Rushden Rangers and Higham Town to form Rushden & Higham United FC. We are proud to represent our local area and continue providing facilities for many teams across the Rushden area, including all of the AFC Rushden and Diamonds teams that make use of our facilities.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, run from top to bottom by volunteers, with every penny raised reinvested into the teams and facilities under our stewardship.We have recently stepped up our on-line presence with Twitter and Facebook content posted more regularly. We were the 3 placed team within our league by increased followers over the season. When you consider our average home attendance is in the region of 45, that’s not bad going. We aim to keep up that online trend and hope to increase our presence in the local area with increased attendances, and with the help of our dedicated committee, and maybe you.

Based at Hayden Road Sports Stadium in Rushden, we are always looking to build relationships with local organisations or like-minded individuals to raise much-needed funds to support operations, maintenance, and to increase our reach in the community and maybe further a-field. Please take some time to read through our sponsorship pack, and maybe help us on our journey, knowing that you could help a small, unpaid team achieve their goals.
