Colerne RFC is a local community focused club that needs to raise continual investment to improve its rugby facilities in line with its programme of planed improvements for the benefit of present and future generations within its catchment area. The current phased improvement plan includes the demolition of the existing dilapidated modular construction changing rooms with replacement by a purpose built blockwork replacement which will include for the first time a separate area for the Colerne Panthers. Since January 2017 we have raised £93,000 of the £115,000 required to carry out this new build and with the construction scheduled to commence in February 2018 we need to secure the remaining funds. Other phases of our improvement plan include the renovation of the existing club house to make it more conducive for use by other village organisations, the upgrade of the floodlighting system and the purchase of additional land to provide extra training space for the ever growing Colerne Panthers. With this in mind we are interested in hearing from any potential sponsors who would like to be a critically important part of our journey.

Why provide sponsorship?

Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support the development of grassroots sport and contribute to the local community.

​With eight out of 10 consumers preferring to believe in what a company does rather than what it says, it’s easy to see why many recession-hit businesses are choosing sponsorship and sports development as ways of maximising the return they make on their marketing.

Where will people see your sponsorship?

In return for your generous support we will aim to act as a ‘shop window’ for you and your brand by sponsor placement on the club shirts and equipment, pitch side banners and the Rugby Club website. Additional exposure will be achieved for our sponsors through mentions in the local press, clubhouse notices and our extensive social media presence. The club offers a variety of sponsorship packages starting at £100 to suit every kind of sponsor. Present opportunities include kit sponsorship for the Colerne Panthers, your name and brand on our teardrop banners, sponsorship of the 1st XV warm up kit and our Buy a Brick Campaign for the building improvements.
