As you may be aware, East Kilbride Thistle FC is the town's highest-ranking football club. The club has been actively working to build a club youth structure that will support the development of young talent within the town in the coming years. This has come to fruition with the launch of our Summer Coaching programme and boys and girls youth teams.
In order to support the development of this structure, East Kilbride Thistle needs to be playing at the highest possible level and with the best possible facilities. This ambition has led to us investing previous sponsorship in building a squad which has gained promotion to the Super First Division of the West Region of the SJFA, improving the match day facilities at the Showpark, and building a new self-contained training facility. It is with this in mind that we are approaching local businesses in order to secure the financial support that is required to build upon the work already carried out. The main opportunities available are:
Your company logo or name featuring prominently on the back of the tracksuits worn by all first team squad members.
Team Warm-up Kit
Your company logo or name featuring prominently on the back of the warm-up tops worn by all first team squad members.
Pitchside Advertising Board
An 8' x4' company banner featuring your company's artwork/design placed in a prominent position within the Showpark.
Match Programme Advert
An advert in the match programme, featuring your company's artwork/design.
Match Ball Sponsorship
Sponsorship of the match ball, for a match of your company's choice, with details of your company's support in the match programme and a tannoy announcement prior to matches. Your company can also display its own banner advertisement within the Showpark for the duration of the match.
Sponsorship of a home match of your choice, with details of your sponsorship in the form of a half page advert in the match programme. Tannoy announcements during the fixture will publicise your company's sponsorship of the match. Your company can also display its own banner advertisement within the Showpark for the duration of the match.
All options are available for all of East Kilbride Thistle's mens' and ladies first team home matches (average 30 matches). In addition, pitchside banner sponsorship will benefit from being visible for all other matches played at the Showpark during the term of the sponsorship period (average 50 matches). We would be delighted if your company was able to support us in this venture, as we promote the club and the town of East Kilbride to a wider audience. Anyone interested in sponsorship of East Kilbride Thistle, should contactDarren Waugh in the first instance.
