Match Sponsorship

Match Sponsorship

The Premiership Final marked the end of the 2021-22 season but at Blackheath we have been planning for next season for several weeks. We have assembled a new squad that will shortly start pre-season training in readiness for the start of the new league season in early September. Last week the fixtures for next season were announced by the RFU. Between September and the end of April next year, we will have 13 home league games and we hope every game will be attended by a bumper crowd to support the team.

We will also be hosting a members and friends lunch before every home game. These lunches have become increasingly popular in recent seasons and we have received very positive feedback from members and guests for the great quality of our lunches.

Fund-raising is an import aspect of the life of the Club and generating income is vital to running the Club and maintaining and improving our ground and facilities. With that in mind, we are seeking sponsors for our First XV home league games. Match sponsorship offers a great opportunity for local companies to promote their firm to our membership and the supporters who attend our matches. In return for sponsoring a match, the sponsor will receive several attractive benefits, including:

  • Pre-match announcement of sponsor across our web site and social media up to 2 weeks ahead of the sponsored match
  • A table for 10 guests at the pre-match lunch including lunch and wine
  • Matchday advertising in the digital match programme and promotional flyers on each lunch table
  • Sponsors award for Man of the Match
  • Match ball signed by the Man of the Match

Across our membership, many of our members own or work for local companies. We would love to hear from anyone who is able to introduce us to a potential match sponsor. Raising sponsorship income is a tough task – especially in this economic climate and a warm introduction to a potential sponsor is so much better than a cold call. Please help your club to ensure that every home game is sponsored next season. The more income we can raise the more we can continue to improve our facilities.

Please contact me with any possible introductions for match sponsors and help us to raise valuable income for the Club!
