Hello, and thanks for reading as we now enter the month of May. Traditionally the end of the football season and the time that commercial activity for the next season really ramps up at Clubs.
Of course, as I type this we still have no idea as to when the new season may be, or indeed if we are going to complete the current season. Add this to a large number of commercial staff currently being on furlough and it is a very complicated time for all parties.
As far as is possible it is business as usual at 2811, obviously we are a lot quieter than we would ordinarily expect to be at this time of year. We can help support commercial departments at all clubs by working to supplement your current staff and to help find those sponsors for next season, especially on anything time sensitive.
We have a number of clients who are looking for sponsors, this includes two Team GB athletes who will be heading to the Tokyo Olympics next year and are looking for personal sponsors to help on their journey. We also work with a very talented boxer, who, but for the current situation, would have been taking on his first title fight.
We are partnered with several organisations who are still working on new deals with Clubs of all sports and at all levels who can help with sponsorship. They are; Kit Suppliers, Merchant Services, Energy Suppliers and a fundraising app for clubs who may want a new revenue stream.
For businesses we offer a free of charge service. Once things return to whatever normal looks like there will be an increased pressure to ensure that all sponsorship spend offers a level of Return on Investment and we would like to help. We will work with your marketing team in order to understand your aims for any sponsorship and your budget. We will then offer you a range of options based on your stated aims and budget and broker and implement the deals for you. This is a free service to businesses, we can add sponsorship expertise to your marketing team and ensure you get the best return for your spend.
