Player Sponsorship is back for the 2020/21 Season!
We are giving YOU the chance to sponsor your favourite player for the 2020/21 season, and get your hands on one of their match worn jerseys.
Not only will your name, or company name, sit on their player profile for the full season, but you will also be invited to watch a Captain's Run where you will be able to see the whole team prepare for their upcoming game. At this event you can also meet and have a photo with your sponsored player (or players) - so if you've always wanted to have a chat with Rambo about flying, or Pierre about the best way to braii get sponsoring today!
Each player has their home and away jersey available for sponsorship on a first come first served basis.
Player Sponsorship includes:
- Your name or company name will appear on the club website and in the matchday programme (or virtual programme).
- An invitation for yourself (plus one) to attend a Captain's Run training session towards the end of the 2020/21 season. Following the Captain’s Run your player will present you with your jersey.
- A digital copy of an official photograph of jersey presentation.
- If a physical event at the Captain’s Run is not possible due to COVID-19 restrictions, then a virtual event will be held with a senior player and senior coach, and your signed jersey will be sent to you.
*PLEASE NOTE* - As our Main Club Sponsor sits within the Wealth Management sector, any potential player sponsors from within this sector are requested to get in touch before proceeding.
Prices range from £200 - £500 (+VAT)
