Dear Sirs, I am writing to you as Treasurer of the boys football club Valley Colts F.C. based in Hempstead, Gillingham, Kent. Our Football Club was formed in 1992 and has since grown to the twelve teams we have today, covering age groups from u/7 to adult. We currently have over 150 boys on our books with the youngest joining at the age of 5. In the past we have had girls teams, and this is an area we are looking to develop once again possibly in the future. All of our team Managers and Coaches are ‘police checked,’ trained in 1st aid, and have taken the required coaching courses – and as a club we are currently endeavouring to become a F.A. Chartered Standard Club. The reason for our letter is to enquire whether your company would be prepared to sponsor our club, or individual teams, for the upcoming season. We also hold an annual tournament over a week-end that attracts over 1500 players and supporters, giving excellent advertising opportunities. Sponsorship options: 1./ Main Club Sponsorship £7,000 For this your company name and logo would appear on a tracksuit / training top given to every boy, Manager and Coach at the start of the season, you will receive publicity on our website www.valleycoltsfc.com, in programmes at any final we reach, at our tournament, and on tickets for every event we hold e.g. presentation evenings, Christmas discos etc. We would also be happy for you to use our club for any PR that you wish, such as company newsletters, open days, etc. We would like to think we could work together benefit both parties. With the main sponsorship your contribution will go towards the running of the club, e.g. police checks, first aid courses, league fees, pitch and training facility hire, coaching courses etc, and will pay for all your company ‘advertisement.’ Monies would also be made available to assist age groups that fail to secure sponsorship. 2./ Individual team sponsorship £200 - £2000 Your company exposure here would be determined by your level of sponsorship, on the next page are some current examples of sponsorship individual teams we have running, and some ideas for 2005/06 season. Sponsorship amount £200 £500 Kit provided / Exposure Footballs and first aid kit School lunch box and T Shirt for every 5-8 year old boy or girl joining the club printed with your company name and logo, Football bags for each boy in the team with company name and logo printed on it. Training tops for each boy with company name and logo printed on them. Full football kit with company name and logo printed on it. Suitable free gift to be given to every boy and girl at Christmas and / or Easter. Scarves, bobble hats, caps, T-shirts, car stickers, basically anything the boys, Coaches, supporters will wear / use for maximum publicity for your company. Age groups requiring this sponsorship. All age groups Under 6, 7 & 8’s £500 £750 £1000 Free gift ?????? Some age groups Most age groups now have these. Under 6, 7, and men’s All age groups 3./ Summer 2007 Tournament. Your advertising exposure from the above would depend upon your contribution. We could have one major sponsor who could advertise in the programme, on pitchside banners, on tents and marquees, and at the tournament by way of a promotional stand, or an object e.g Car distributor showing off a new car – or smaller sponsorship packages e.g. a hairdressers spray colouring the boys hair, ice cream vans, or a High Street name sponsoring the score tent! We hope you may be able to assist us, should you wish to discuss this in more detail, or meet with members of our committee please do not hesitate to contact me. Yours faithfully Miles Kember Valley Colts F.C. Treasurer. P.S. We would be pleased to hear any ideas you may have………….
