Sponsoring Barden Ridgebacks Football Club

Barden Ridgebacks Football Club (“Ridgebacks”) would not operate as successfully without the wonderful financial and in-kind support from our loyal sponsors.

Why sponsor Ridgebacks?

Sponsoring a large and vibrant amateur football (soccer) club like Ridgebacks can help you to promote your business to a wide customer audience in the greater Menai area and more broadly within the Sutherland Shire and beyond.

The Club is centrally located in The Ridge Sporting Complex at Barden Ridge. The Club’s activities alone attract in the vicinity of 250,000 vehicular trips per season to our home grounds. The eleven other sports operating in close proximity to the Club’s fields deliver fantastic captive exposure each week.

Barden Ridgebacks actively promotes its sponsors  and regularly urges Club Members to reciprocate this valuable support with their custom.

What sponsorship packages are available?

Four (4) sponsorship packages are available covering the extended winter season from February to September each year:

All packages include promotional opportunities for sponsors including print (newsletter, flyer, yearbook), internet, social media and outdoor advertising.

Sponsorship packages start from as little as $500 per annum (plus GST).

Details of all sponsorship packages can be provided to prospective sponsors upon request.

Can sponsorship be customized?

Yes. Barden Ridgebacks will consider bundling or unbundling any sponsorship package components.

We are also happy to discuss specific and unique sponsorship proposals including financial, non-financial and in-kind arrangements such as:

  • specific teams – e.g. the 21As
  • specific age divisions – all players in U18 women’s competitions
  • specific team segments – e.g. all Small Sided Football teams
  • uniforms – including merchandise clothing, branding of jerseys shirts, shorts or socks etc.
  • equipment – e.g. balls, training aids
  • awards and rewards – player, team, annual
  • infrastructure – barbecue, shelter, seating, machinery, fencing
  • consumables – canteen, competition, field marking

Notwithstanding, in considering each proposal, it will be important for sponsors to demonstrate that benefits will accrue to the entire Club.

Are there discounts for multi-year sponsorships?

Yes.  The Club will discount sponsorship packages if at least 50% is paid in advance.

Are there any minimum sponsorship periods?
