  • 5 Jun 2009 Prepared by: Stuart J Lockhart Sponsorship
  • 5 Jun 2009 Prepared by: Stuart J Lockhart Introduction   Successful sponsorship is a process that is mutually beneficial with our club receiving the sponsor’s support or input and the sponsor benefiting from the publicity of the aforementioned support.   There are many guises that sponsorship takes for example, charitable donations, corporate hospitality etc however, this guide will specifically look at the input of cash, products or services in return for specific benefits.
  • 5 Jun 2009 Prepared by: Stuart J Lockhart Why Companies Sponsor?   Sponsorship is not necessarily a philanthropy, the one common aim is the promotion of their own good name. Football is a high profile activity which attracts massive public interest and receives substantial media coverage – both national and local. A large number of companies see it as comparable to advertising whilst others suggest that it performs a broader promotional function, which pure advertising cannot do and so represents better value for money in media terms.
  • 5 Jun 2009 Prepared by: Stuart J Lockhart Why companies sponsor sport?   There are a number of different reasons, depending on the type of company and the nature of the exposure that it is seeking.   Publicity   Corporate image   Public relations and community involvement   Endorsement opportunities   Client hospitality   Direct marketing   Educational sponsorship   Patronage   Company sponsored events
