2022 Sponsorship & Donation Drive
Having just entered 36 junior teams into the various junior leagues from under 6 through to under 17, and with our league winning over 35 side defending their title in the senior’s division again, Virginia United Football Club is without question the biggest and fastest growing club in Durban!
For a community club, with very little funding besides our annual player subs, I’m sure you will all agree that the grounds and facilities are in superb condition. This doesn’t come without substantial cost; both financial, and the tireless work being done behind the scenes by a small, dedicated group of people, who make sure that Danville Park remains in tip top condition, not only for our kids, but for the Durban North community as a whole!
We are very proud of our continued partnership with Hirsch’s, who have been our primary sponsor for many years, and continue to support the club and supply us with our kits. VUFC is truly grateful for this ongoing support. We are now on a drive to look for additional support in the form of sponsorships or donations so we can take the club to the ‘next level’. From kit bags and equipment to the big things like a new boundary fence, a lawnmower, and funding for the new professional coaches, here are some of the ideas the club has put together where you can help!
Water Fountain Plaques
Sponsor a plaque on our new water fountain and cement your child or family’s name in our club’s history. What a wonderful way to always remain a part of our beloved club and a reminder of all the fun and happy times! Get in touch for further details.
Apparel – Branding Opportunity
Our community continues to grow and we constantly have requests for supporter’s gear which we are actioning this season. If your business would benefit from this great branding opportunity, please get in touch as we would love to partner with you. Some examples below:
Boundary Fence – Branding Opportunity
To ensure the safety and security of all our kids, you will have seen we started upgrading our boundary fence with new fencing and are making good progress with this project. We want to continue replacing the existing concrete walls with this new fencing but rely on our sign sponsors to fund this initiative.
We will handle the printing and installing of each sign, get in touch if you would like your company represented on the boundary fence, this is a great advertising opportunity, especially if you’re in the Durban North area. We have never had a bigger community at VUFC !
Kit Bags – Branding Opportunity
We have an even larger squad than last year with 37 teams spanning across all age groups and we are aiming to provide each team with a new kit bag as our current bags are looking tired and have seen too many seasons.
We are looking for a sponsor/s to fund these kit bags which will be branded with the sponsor’s name\logo. Here’s an example: (Not the actual bags)
In order to ensure we are developing our kids abilities and encouraging their continued love for the game, we have enlisted qualified coaches to assist a number of our teams in their growth and further success.
We plan to expand the presence of qualified coaches into all age groups and teams in the seasons to come, ensuring the continued development of our rising stars. We are looking for a partner to come on board and sponsor our professional coaches.
I’m sure you will agree the fields are looking amazing! But this doesn’t happen by fluke, or overnight. A lot of effort from a very small team of dedicated committee members goes into the upkeep of our beautiful home ground, Danville Park.
In reality the club does not have a wealth of world class equipment and get by by either working with the local municipality, borrowing from neighbouring clubs or using privately owned equipment. The club is always on the lookout for sponsors for equipment, however big or small – If you are in a position to assist with things like tree cutters, mowers, fertilizer spreaders please get in touch to discuss options.
If you aren’t in a position to get involved with sponsorships and branding, but would like to make a donation please use this Zapper code, or link: https://zapper.com/url/ux7yQDxGAK to donate directly to the club and leave a message if you’d like to.
If you have any other ideas to get involved with club fund raising, please do not hesitate to give any of the club committee a shout.
