Dear Prospective Sponsor and Partner,
Hello and welcome to Villager Schools Sevens, the oldest 7’s tournament in the country. Firstly, I would like to thank you personally for allowing us the opportunity to present you with our sponsorship proposal. Schools Rugby in the Western Cape has continued its upward trajectory over the last ten years or so and continues to attract large audiences each weekend as the popularity of the game continues to grip the attention of local and national news outlets.
The Villager Sevens has been a highlight on many a local rugby fans calendar for over 45 years and has enjoyed hosting large crowds at Brookside to see future stars of the game such as Dillyn Leyds, Matthew Turner (Eng), Nick Koster, Rob Herring (Ireland), Paul Delport and Kyle Brown to name a few who have all gone on to either play on the International 7’s circuit or in Super and International Rugby.
With the addition of young and passionate organizers, combined with the help of TEEM, a marketing and events company, I believe that the Schools Sevens has the foundations to attract the right like-minded sponsors to ensure that the tournament can become one of the biggest and not to mention most loved events on the school calendar.
To achieve our aims we have designed a number of tiered packages which will give businesses the opportunity to support the Tournament at all levels. Our sponsorship packages have been developed to provide businesses with an excellent return on investment. Our packages offer our sponsors brand exposure through a variety of mediums including, media, print, signage, membership database, competition naming rights and much more. In return for your investment, the Villager Schools Sevens can help your business increase your brand awareness and image, to gain new customers and to develop relationships with existing customers. In doing this, you showcase your devoted involvement in supporting the local community and Schoolboy Rugby in the Western Cape.
I am confident our dedicated staff, backed by the support of TEEM, and with our desire to see the Villager Schools Sevens grow into the top sevens tournament in the country, will ensure your business will enjoy enhanced brand and customer awareness. With a potential support base of over 15,000 Old Boys, parents, local school boys and girls, we would relish the opportunity to work with your business to reach this potential audience.
If you have any queries regarding any of our sponsorship packages please don’t hesitate to contact Ross Williams or Matthew Rockhill. Ross and Matthew are part of the Villager FC Committee and are owners of TEEM which is currently involved with marketing the main club and improving the bar and restaurant area to ensure the longevity of the Club as an amateur organization.
In finishing, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for taking the time to read our sponsorship proposal. We believe our proposal will provide an exciting marketing opportunity for your business and we would relish the opportunity of working in partnership with your business. The Villager Schools Sevens looks forward to welcoming you to our family.
Villager School Sevens Chairman
