Title: Player Sponsorship 16/17
Post by: Berniman on Saturday, July 16, 2016, 12:15:48
So I have been contacted by the club about this season:

Dear Paul

Hope you are well ?

Thankyou very much for sponsoring Yaser Kasim for last season.

The time has come round again where we are now advertising the Player Sponsorship for 2016/17 home and away.

We would like to offer you first refusal on Yaser Kasim for this coming season.

This season we are selling sponsorships for Home and Away - Cost for this would be £650 for the home and £350 for the away , both including vat.

I have attached all the information for you to take a look at the benefits that they will include.

For securing the above player please can you confirm and make payment by 20th July 2016.

Many Thanks


The attached information reads as follows:

2016/17 SEASON

Player Sponsorships

A popular sponsorship with supporters as well as with businesses, this is an ideal opportunity to show your support for the club and your favourite player.

HOME SHIRT PACKAGE

• Four complimentary tickets to the Annual Sponsors dinner.

• A signed home shirt presented to you by your sponsored player, at the Sponsors Dinner.

• A dedicated player appearance with your sponsored player (one per season).

• Four complimentary main stand tickets to a Sky Bet League One home fixture.

• Acknowledgement of your shirt sponsorship on the shirt sponsors page in every home Matchday Programme.

£650 INC VAT

The management and backroom staff are also available to sponsor, with packages available.


Away package:

2016/17 SEASON

Player Sponsorships

With demand always high for a player sponsorship, the club have introduced a new away kit sponsorship for the 2016/17 season. Although designed to be a secondary sponsorship to the home package, it is still a unique way to support Swindon Town.

AWAY SHIRT PACKAGE

• Two complimentary tickets to the Robins Suite for a Sky Bet League One Fixture. (Excluding all Premier Fixtures and subject to availability)

• A signed away shirt presented to you by your sponsored player in the Robins Suite post-match

• Two complimentary main stand tickets to a Sky Bet League One home game

• Acknowledgement of your shirt sponsorship on the shirt sponsors page in every home Matchday Programme.

£350 INC VAT

The management and backroom staff are also available to sponsor, with packages available.



I have run this for the past 2 years and am happy to pass this to somebody else if anyone wants it.  If there are no volunteers or if you want me to run it again I am happy to do so, let me know your thoughts.

Also, can you all give me an idea of what you want to do?
          • Sponsor Yaser again (Home kit)
          • Sponsor Yaser again (Away kit)
          • Sponsor somebody else (Home kit)
          • Sponsor somebody else (Away kit)
          • Not bother this year...

If we decide to go ahead then we will need to pull together £650 or £350 so make sure you are willing to take part and dig deep.

Cheers
Berni

Home shirt, maybe we can try and get one of the new players like Goddard as seems Yasser wants to bugger off.

I'm in for £20

Title: Re: Player Sponsorship 16/17
Post by: Berniman on Saturday, July 16, 2016, 16:25:05
Yeah I'll setup a poll,  I just wanted to gauge the feeling so that I can respond on the Yasser question.  Also whether we can manage to get the £650.

The deadline is if we want the first refusal on Yasser, they know they won't get £650 out of us by the 20th, more a case of me letting them know.  Last year I paid a deposit and then the rest once collections were in near the start of the season.



Title: Re: Player Sponsorship 16/17
Post by: Berniman on Saturday, July 16, 2016, 16:27:12
Can somebody make sure the contracted players thread is up to date and I will setup the poll over the next 24 hrs.

I will respond to the club that we are in but want someone different, if everyone is ok with that?

OK we have £250 so far, if all of those in for a tenner go to £20 we jump to £400 straight away, so effectively 7/8 new people away from achieving the £650.

What do we think people?

Title: Re: Player Sponsorship 16/17
Post by: Berniman on Sunday, July 17, 2016, 16:29:46
So we are at £440.00.

We need some of you tenner's to commit to £20 or some more contributors.  I would like to have confirmation of the £650 before I commit to the club that we are going for a home kit tomorrow.

Come on people, if all those that have punted a tenner go to twenty we have another £180 straight away..  Which will give us £620 and on the verge of target..

Yep, still want your £10.  Totally understand those that can't go to £20 for whatever reason, just trying to get to the magic mark :)

Currently at £590, one last push people, I will notify the club that we would like Goddard home kit as we are close enough now.  Let's see what the response is..

OK, so just heard back from the club, we have got John Goddard's home kit sponsorship.  We just need to get that final £20 now...


I am going to start PM'ing you all with payment details, please ensure that you put your forum name on the payments so that can keep track of those that have paid.  Those that are in a position to pay now please do, those that need a little time just let me know by responding to the PM.

We either need one new £20 contributor or 2 of the £10 contributors to get generous (as well as give themselves more chance of winning prizes, which will be the same as last year btw)

Come on people, lets get this over the line..

I understand there are a few that can't pay now, which is fine as long as I know.  I also know that some will wait for payday, again all good.  However, if you are able to pay soon, please do, so that we can get this done and dusted as soon as possible.

Considering I was only notified on Friday, and posted about this on Saturday I gotta say the response has been a tad impressive.

In 3 days we have drummed up £650 worth of contributions, run a poll and chosen our player, got our player confirmed by the club and collected over half of that money (currently £330).

Pretty impressive for a bunch of piss heads, smack heads and cunts on a 3rd division teams football forum.  You can all pat yourself on the back. :clap:

I will likely pay the majority of this to the club this week (maybe £400) and then look to pay the rest at the end of the month after payday for those that need the time.

Well done guys and girls..

We've got the £650, if anyone doesn't pay up i'll put you as first reserve, or if one of the £20 contributors want to split with you that is good.

tbh there is usually one straggler that doesn't pay up.

Paid £450 to the club yesterday and told them we would pay the rest first week of August before the first game, so those that haven't paid yet, that is your deadline.

I will shut up now asking for money until the week after next.  No excuses once pay day has passed :)

Title: Re: Player Sponsorship 16/17
Post by: Berniman on Sunday, July 24, 2016, 18:25:31
Yes you are correct with the £10 for one name and £20 for 2 names.  We have got the £650 we need at the moment, so I can put you on reserve if we have a non-payer, or you can split with someone that is already in for £20.

Ok no problem. If anyone who put in £20 to get the target but ideally wanted to pay £10 give me a reply. If not il be a reserve for a non payer

Just a gentle reminder before I start getting Agro next week.  £70 left to come in with 5 people left to pay, 3 of which have already told me that they will be paying next week.

I have 2 people on standby that want to be involved.  Cut off for paying will be end of day Wednesday and then I will offer to the standby list.

Well done people, this has by far been the easiest year since I have been doing it to get responses and payment organised.

Forgot about this before Xmas and they have just announced the date for the Players Sponsors Dinner:

A night  with Swindon Town Football Club !

 

Firstly, thank you for sponsoring John Goddard for the 2016/17 season and for your continued support of Swindon Town Football Club.

 

A date for this year’s Player and Management Shirt Sponsors’ Dinner has now been set and will take place on the evening of Tuesday 21st February 2017 between  7pm – 11pm.

 

The Legends Lounge at the County Ground will once again be the venue with BBC Wiltshire’s Shaun Hodgetts and Hall of Fame inductee Sam Parkin hosting the event. The evening will consist of a two-course meal followed by refreshments. There will also be a selection of great auction and raffle prizes up for grabs on the night as well.

 

Throughout the evening, players will be presenting their respective sponsors with a replica of this season’s home shirt. Photo opportunities with players will also be available.

 

As a 2016/17 player sponsor, you will receive four complementary tickets to the event for you to attend with three guests. Additional guests are also welcome at a price of £30pp (including VAT).

 

If you wish to attend this year’s Sponsors’ Dinner, please confirm places and for any additional guests by 16th February 2017. An itinerary  for the evening will follow in due course.

 

Thank you once again for your support.



I am in the US at the moment, but will arrange the draw next week when I am back..

1st Prize - Signed Shirt
2nd Prize - 2 tickets to the above
3rd Prize - 2 tickets to the above
4th Prize - A personal appearance from JG at a function (trophy presentation etc.)

OK, so I am going to do what I usually do.  I have you all in the hat randomly numbered 1-65.  Those that chucked in £20 are in there twice if you bunged in £10 you are in there once.

I am going to PM four regular posters that are not in the hat and ask them to pick a number 1-65.  The first response will be 4th place and so on...  about as random as you can get.  I will then announce the winners of the prizes over the next 24 hrs once I have all four responses.

No whinging, it is what it is..

Good luck.

Well done all, unlucky those that didn't win. 

Posh Red and Herthab you need to PM me the "real" names of the people attending the sponsors dinner so that I can notify the club.  If any additional tickets are needed by anyone they are £30pp while spaces exist, you will also need to let me know your names by PM and arrange payment.

Batch, we will need to arrange to get your shirt to you as one of the attendees will need to pick it up.  As both winners live out of town we might have to come up with a plan, either you pick it up from the club or I can get it for you.

That's it, I'm done..

I don't think so.

There are some rules around this prize though.  I think it has to be used before the end of the season, and they stipulate for certain days of the week, unless the player himself is flexible (which I guess means lives locally and has no problem with turning up at a time that you are after) so if you have an idea of what you want to use it for it might be worth starting to talk to the club about it.

Probably more likely Kay Wainwright, but Adam would probably be able to help also.  If you want me to make the initial contact let me know as they obviously know me as the sponsor contact, but if you can remember my name you can always reference me :)  If not I will remind you..

Here we go then.

In 4th place and the winner of a personal appearance by JG is:

Drawn out of the hat by GarethGillman:

 :clap:
I'm afraid after much prolonged discussion with the club, it looks like I'll be unable to use this, so throwing it back into the pot for Berniman to re-distribute as he sees fit. Restrictions are:
1) Has to be done before end of season
2) Can't be on player's day off (Wed)
3) Can't be on a match day or day after

All quite sensible restrictions and no complaints at all about that (and huge thanks to Adam for his help in trying to arrange it) but unfortunately meant I wasn't able to use it, so hopefully one of you lot will be able to.

I think the best thing to do is just to open it up to all that contributed..

If you want it, put your hand up..

I contributed (I think), and actually know a group of lads with Down's Syndrome who would potentially love a visit from JG to one of their football sessions or the like so if it's going...

I'd say get him to go into one of the local schools to help with a 'PE' session or to give a talk, I know NT has done it previously and my lad come home and told me so kids do like seeing stfc players, but the above sounds like a much better idea

On a side note does anyone know if stfc send players into schools like they used to do a few years ago ?

I was going to get him to turn up at my work and make me cups of tea but the other idea is much better so go with that

Nice one - I'll have a chat with the people there and see what we can work out and what they think, and then sort it our with you Berniman?

Agreed sounds like a great idea.

He's a really nice guy as well.

Apparently after being released by Reading did some coaching & was back there coaching some of their youngsters.
I think he currently coaches an under 13s team. no, not our first team ;)
