GETTING A LOCAL SPONSOR CAN BE A HUGE BONUS FOR THE CLUB
... BUT IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHERE TO START
The team and volunteers will have contacts so make sure you use their local knowledge.

If you are looking for sponsorship, you’ll need to consider what you have to offer them. Is it increased customer traffic, website exposure or publicity on kit?
