Perfect for those companies wishing to have a presence at all matches throughout the season.
Associating yourself with a specific player can be a great way to immerse yourself in the goings on at the Club, following their progress and having the opportunity to support a development or senior player through what could be their most exciting season to come. Benefits vary, but you will be entitled to have your company logo on their page in the Yearbook and in the programmes.
With a minimum of two domestic matches televised live on Sky Sports, advertising boards not only grab the attention of the spectators at the ground but also thousands of potential viewers at home. International televised fixtures also provide local sponsors with a potential worldwide TV audience of over 8 million.
If you have a specific event or occasion you wish to promote, or if you want to promote general awareness of your company, match sponsorship is a cost effective way of doing so. Prices vary, depending on whether you sponsor a four day, one day or NatWest T20 BLAST match but the benefits remain the same – PA Accreditation, logo on menu’s and programmes (where applicable) and a memento of your sponsorship presented to a company representative on the pitch by a Durham player.
Match ball sponsorship is available at all home NatWest T20 BLAST Cup matches and Royal London One Day Cup fixtures. Benefits include your company logo on the programme and menu’s plus a photograph on the pitch at the start of the game with the Durham Captain.
The fast and furious NatWest T20 BLAST is hugely popular and with record breaking attendances it gives you the perfect opportunity to reach thousands of spectators over a two week period. Series sponsors are entitled to logo presence on menu’s and programmes plus a host of other extras which you can select when you speak with one of our sponsorship team.
The Durham Academy has produced an array of home grown talent since it’s inception just over 10 years ago, with the likes of fast bowlers Liam Plunkett and Stephen Harmison, as well as Paul Collingwood, Ben Stokes and Scott Borthwick all coming up through the junior ranks, the Academy is a worthwhile recipient of your corporate sponsorship. The Durham Academy is one of only two in the country that actually compete in local league cricket therefore your brand, which can be included on kit and bags, will also be visible throughout the region when the team take on their various opponents.
