Rushden & Diamonds launch raffle-based initiative

Rushden and Diamonds FC is to launch a new sponsorship raffle which will see one lucky winner win first team shirt sponsorship for a punt of just £350.

The new initiative will open up shirt sponsorship to a greater number of people and means that

supporters and companies, who could only previously dream of becoming the official Rushden & Diamonds FC shirt sponsor, are now one step closer to securing the coup .

Businesses, individuals and groups are permitted to take part. A single payment of £360+VAT will gain

one entry into the draw for sponsorship rights on the First Team’s kit as well as all replica shirts sold during the 2010/11 campaign. The deal would normally be valued in the region of £50,000 so demand is expected to high, especially with a number of other prizes on offer such as a perimeter board, programme advert and player sponsorship for the whole of the remaining 2010/11 season.

With straightforward sponsorship becoming more and more difficult to secure each year in these harsh economic times, Diamonds are trying to be inventive, to involve the local community and local businesses, making things more affordable for all concerned. The club has opted to offer all local companies and individuals with the opportunity to have their logo on the front of the team’s shirts, which will also appear on the official website, the front cover of the matchday programme, and at the front of the team coach for all away fixtures.

The winner will also be allowed advertising in the programme and on permimeter boards within the stadium. Along with access to players for promotional appearances, to be arranged and agreed at times convenient with the club.

Further exposure extends to coverage in the local newspapers which detail all stories involving the Diamonds, TV coverage on Premier Sports TV, and, of course, the thousands of fans will also see Diamonds play both at Nene Park and on their travels across the UK to support the Club.

What’s more, everyone entering the draw will be acknowledged in the matchday programme for the whole season, together with the entitlement to a matchday meal for two to be announced during the 2010/11 season at the discretion of the Club and a pair of executive tickets at a Blue Square Bet Premier fixture of their choice.

The ticket price is £350+VAT each with no limit as to how many you can purchase in one go. All tickets must be paid for prior to the draw or they will not be entered. The draw will be held on the pitch at half time at our home fixture versus Crawley Town on Sunday 26th September 2010, kick-off 3.00pm where the winning ticket will then see their logo on the front of Rushden & Diamonds shirts commencing with our live televised home fixture on Premier Sports versus Mansfield Town FC on Saturday 9th October 2010, kick-off 5.15pm.
