SEE YOUR NAME ON OUR HOME SHIRT

3 April 2013

The 1883 Sponsors Club returns

Local businesses have less than one week left to get their name emblazoned across the Bristol Rovers home shirt for as little as just £1,000.

The Shirt Sponsorship Draw is now in it's fifth year, and the club are again offering companies the chance to get their logo on the famous blue and white quarters.

The closing deadline for joining the Sponsor Club is this Saturday, so companies are being encouraged to act now to take advantage of this great opportunity.

All companies that take out one of the 1883 Sponsors Club memberships will receive free entry into the shirt sponsorship draw, where there are five great prizes to be won.

Each member of the 1883 Sponsors Club receives a corporate hospitality package which includes a three course meal, seats in the DriBuild Stand and a signed ball.

The package will offer potential sponsors exposure on both local and national levels, as well as additional advertising at the Memorial Stadium, and many other perks.

Membership entitles you to free entry into the draw where you could win one of the following fabulous sponsorship prizes;
1) Your company name on the Bristol Rovers home strip for 2013/14.
2) Your company name on the Bristol Rovers away strip for 2013/14.
3) Your logo on a stadium elevated board for 2013/14.
4) Your logo on a stadium perimeter board for 2013/14.
5) A full colour, full page programme advert for 2013/14.

So your company's logo could feature in photographs in newspapers and reports on TV and the internet. And, of course, there will be thousands of Rovers' fans wearing replica shirts as well.

Bristol Rovers Stadium General Manager Ian Holtby will once again be in charge of the draw.

He said: "The draw has been very successful over the last four years, but we were thinking of returning to more conventional methods this time around.

“However, after listening to supporters, everyone wanted us to carry on with the sponsors club, as it gives small companies a fantastic opportunity to get their names associated with the club.

“I would like to thank all the companies who have joined the club over the last four years, it has been a pleasure working with you all.”

Entry to the 1883 Sponsors Club costs from £1,000, with three different levels of membership.

This season's draw took place at the Memorial Stadium in January and local company Opus Recruitment Solutions were the first name out of the hat.

Opus are a young, vibrant specialist IT recruitment solutions consultancy based in Bristol.

One of last year’s winners was Goldring Yates Chartered Surveyors. Richard Goldring said: “We have been members of the sponsors draw club since its inception, and this was the first year we have won anything.

“However, we won the elevated advertising board which Ian told us would be picked out by the SKY cameras.

“Low and behold, one of our competitors watched SKY Sports and was amazed that we had obtained such prestigious advertising.

“We continue with the view that the package is excellent value for a small business like ours that wishes to support the club but cannot justify major sponsorship.”

Membership of the 1883 Sponsors Club will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis. The winners will be drawn by manager John Ward on Friday April 19th.
