The European Grand Old Rugby Executive Committees are all Volunteers and as yet, there is no specific Sponsorship for our Oldies Rugby, or Festivals, although we are always looking for a generous Rugby benefactor ….or two!
All aspects of Sponsorship are available, from major Corporate Sponsorship, smaller amounts of Sponsorship – with a Financial contribution, Product or Services in kind, Festival Brochure and Pitchside Advertising, being amongst the options.
Contact us by E–mail – gro.ybgurdlodnargnaeporuenull@ofni
If EGOR arrange a deal for Festival Balls, Playing Kit etc….then that Company shall be an Official Festival Supplier.
We issue a Newsletter on a regular basis and Advertising or Sponsorship can also be agreed. Sponsor Oldies Rugby……and you will definitely get a Game – if you so wish !! Over the years, Rugby Oldies have supported many Charities, both Local and National, usually with the emphasis on Youth / Children’s Rugbyand Rugby Charities We endeavour, where possible to make our Festivals eco – friendly.
Each Festival, whether European or Local, must strive to generate enough in Sponsorship and Fund Raising to keep the costs to the Oldies Participants as low as possible. A Host Rugby Club should not find itself running a Festival at a loss !
Regular Club Sponsors may also wish to be involved in your G O Event….give them the option. Seek new Sponsors…….check with your Local City / Town Council for appropriate Grants and meet up with their Events Manager who can advise. The Local Sports Council may also be able to offer a Grant. Services “ In Kind ” may also be available from your local Municipal Authority. Other Fund Raisers can be
- Bar – B – Q’s and Discos
- Car Boot Sales
- Car Wash at local Games
- G O Player Sponsorship
- Festival Brochure Sell Advertising to cover Printing Costs
- Sell Franchises at the Festival to local Businesses to take a Stall
Make sure your Players pay their Subs to the Club and set up Standing Orders etc to enable them to pay in a little amount monthly, to offset Tour Funds.
Participate in other Festivals and enjoy your Oldies Rugby !!
