Football, baseball, and basketball are America’s most popular sports, so
football player you have a lot to offer potential sponsors. Long
hours of dedication spent on and off the field are necessary if you want
to become a professional. Persistence will pay off, but having someone
to help you out along the way will make things easier for you. Sponsors
can help make all of this possible. Since football players are some of
the most popular sports players in the US, you will have many ways to
find sponsors. Here are three tips to help you find sponsors below.
Your schools, both high school and college, are the best place to look
for sponsorship. If you played football in high school or college ball,
you have a good chance of getting your alma mater to sponsor you. If
you’re still in high school, look for colleges that will offer you a
scholarship. Often scouts will come to games and this is your
chance to shine. If you’re in college now, talk to your coaches and
see if they offer scholarships for star players.
Restaurants often sponsor high school team and proudly display the team
photo on their walls. Go to some of your local restaurants with a
sponsorship proposal. Whether in the form of money,
equipment, or even
catering, restaurants are great sports sponsors. There’s a way to
give back to your sponsors. On the football flyers that are given out
at games, you can public print their information and by doing so allow
to give back to your sponsors.
Sports sponsors aren’t just limited to those that live in your area.
Larger companies are often eager to help out promising sport stars. If
you’ve got what it takes, take a sponsorship proposal to sport equipment
manufacturers to see if they can offer you some of the
football equipment that you need. From football shoes to uniforms,
there are plenty of football goods manufacturers out there. Remember
that persistence pays off, so if one place turns you down, go to another
with your sponsorship proposal letter.
