Clubs gather for Sponsorship Evening

Clubs gather for Sponsorship Evening

Club volunteers from across the Province came together at Banbridge RFC on Thursday evening to learn from industry experts about attracting and retaining sponsors at Ulster Rugby’s Club Officer Training.

The annual event has become a primary focus in the club volunteer calendar and has been growing from strength to strength.

This year, clubs heard from CEO Jonny Petrie and Business Development Manager Neil Hanna on how clubs can maximise their sponsorship opportunities.

The evening concluded with a case study from Sponsorship & Media Convenor at Banbridge RFC, John Ewart, who shared some of the club’s key achievements and practical steps in this area.

Event participants also received a newly developed Club Sponsorship Resource which will hopefully be of support when structuring, pursuing and delivering your sponsorship goals.
