Part of Cambridge’s return to football’s Northern League is the challenge of playing away matches, and managing the travel that involves.
As well as facing a number of trips to Auckland, the Reds’ furthest away match will be played at Whangarei on Saturday August 11, 2018.
Our first team and reserves will play Northland in matches that may become a significant factor in our final league standings for the Lotto NRFL competitions.
Rather than make the drive of more than four hours on the day of the match, our coaches would prefer the teams to travel north on Friday and stay overnight so the players are fresh for matches at 12.30pm (reserves) and 3pm (first teams).
This involves expense of about $1,100 for backpacker accommodation, and additional hireage of mini-buses as they would be required for two days, instead of the usual one.
The club has begun looking for ways to fundraise this additional expense but seeks a sponsor who wants to help the teams and, at the same time, benefit from becoming a commercial partner.
In return for making a contribution to the trip expenses, the sponsor will receive:
- Acknowledgement and promotion through our website, social media and other media, including our club magazine RED.
- Naming rights for the rest of the season for our first team Player of the Day.
Our club is proud of the value it helps create for its commercial partners and sees this as an opportunity for a sponsor to benefit from an introductory project.
Please note: we can not accept sponsorship proposals from companies that compete with our premium group of sponsors whose business categories include image reproduction/printing, point-of-sale payment solutions, plumbing, home building, insurance, physiotherapy, cafe/bar/restaurant and sports apparel.
