Sponsorship & Commercial Opportunity

2016/17 Season

Our 65th Anniversary

Welcome

The football club has existed since at least 1951 and is a family run club. We are well known throughout the football world and are Bristol’s biggest non-league football team.

We have played in the Southern League since 2000/01 so are well established in playing at this competitive level. For the 2016/17 season we will continue to play in the Southern League, Division 1, South and West.

In recent years we won the Gloucestershire FA Senior Cup in 2012/13 and retained it in 2013/14. Eight teams compete for this local trophy, including Bristol City Reserves, Bristol Rovers Reserves and Cheltenham Town Reserves.

Our long term aim is to be promoted to the Southern League Premier Division and then push on for promotion to the Conference South league – where the majority of teams are full time professionals.

The four club Directors are therefore ambitious for the club to excel on the playing pitch. Would you like to be part of a winning team?

Match Day Sponsorship

We’ve flexible match day sponsorship deals involving anything from ball sponsorship to mascots to a good day out with your friends or work colleagues. This can involve no food, or a simple buffet or something more extravagant. So let us know what your requirements are and we can tailor make the event especially for you. We can even organise Taxis home for you!

Pitch Costs

To help us with our annual pitch maintenance costs we are offering an annual rental for each segment of the pitch. Prices start from £30 a square.

Sponsoring the Club’s Website

Are you keen to support a progressive semi-professional non-league football club, whilst also gaining great publicity? If so, then this an ideal opportunity!

We currently play in the Southern League Division One South & West. The club is ambitious and forward thinking with plans for progression in the coming years. This is a great opportunity to be associated with a successful football club.

An ideal way of attracting business is to sponsor an active website. In 2015/16 we had an impressive 82,822 unique visits. It is often one of the top ranked Pitchero websites.

COST £500 + VAT (This also includes two season tickets worth over £250).

Advertising Hoardings

Have your own business advertising hoarding at the ground. It’s a great way to get noticed, not only by the crowd, but as a back-drop in the many thousands of photos that are taken at the ground every season

Programme advertising

A full page advert in the programme is £100 for the season. Or a half page is £50. All adverts are in black and white and space is very limited.

3 Match Pool tickets

Have your business name printed on every match pool ticket we sell for the season. We usually sell about 400 tickets every week of the season. Cost £250 + VAT for the season.

We are also looking to substantially expand our match pool ticket sales. If you think you are able to sell more than 100 tickets a week we will pay a sales based commission.

Computer equipment

We are always on the lookout for a laptop or notebook and printer. These items help us with our match day responsibilities for things like team sheets, gate money analysis etc. Can you give us or loan us any unwanted equipment? In return, your business name will appear on all the team sheets we produce along with banner on website.

50:50 Club

The aim of '50 Club' is straightforward, to attract fifty supporters who will pay £10 monthly to enter a draw in a bid to win one of three cash prizes - £100, £50 and £25. A monthly draw will be held throughout the season from September through to April.

Players of '50 Club' can either pay £10 monthly or a one off payment of £90 to cover the entire season. Each player will be issued with a membership number for the monthly draw; if your membership number is drawn then you win one of the three cash prizes available!
