Kit Sponsorship and design the kit

Septeber the 23rd 2014

At the last meeting we agreed that we would look for potential sponsors for sponsorship of our kit for 2015/2016 season ( The sponsors will have the opportunity of a 2 years sponsorship)

We will shortly be launching a " Design a Competition" where we will ask the club members for their ideas for the New Kit for 2015/2016 Season.

The boys will be able to purchase a "Design a Kit Pack" from the Clubhouse Kitchen the pack costs £2 ( All proceeds will go towards the club) The Senior members of the committee will then go through all the entries and decide if we have a winner and we will then get the kit made up to see what it looks like.

Imagine if one of the lads in your team won and was the designer of the new kit ?

We launched this last time and the winner was a lad in Marc Roots team and on Presentation Day we presented him with his very own kit with his name on the back

We are now looking for potential Sponsors and we are asking YOU yes YOU to ask all your parents and supporters if there is anyone who will sponsor YOUR teams kit on a 2 year sponsorship for the 2015/2016 Season.

The Sponsors will get:

1) Companies Logo on football shirt of the team that they have sponsored ( Brand New Season Kit ! )

2) Sponsorship Details will be put onto our website with the Sponsors Logo being put onto our website and a link from our website to theirs

3) A framed Team Photo of the lads in the Kit

4) An invitation to Presentation Day where they can present the children in the teams trophies and medals.

Plus being a very proud parent/supporter seeing their Company Logo on their Lads Orpington Rovers FC New Football Kit

So whats is going to cost

5 A Side Teams = £320

7 A Side Teams = £400

9 A Side Teams = £480

11 A Side and Senior Teams = £750

We would like to give YOUR Parents the first chance offer of Sponsorship before we then take this out to the wider market

This is VERY important that you speak to ALL you parents and supporters to see if anyone is interested. If they are please contact me with their details or pass them my contact details so I can discuss this further with them.
