Why become a sponsor?

Dear Prospective Sponsor,

Thank you for taking some time to consider being part of the Royals community in 2014. Our club has been involved with the Canberra community for over 60 years. Not only do we strive for on-field success, we have also been driven to provide a great sporting community for amateur players in the Canberra region by passionate volunteers.

Any given year our Club has over 200 players, coaches & volunteers who give up their time to make sure we can field 4 grade teams, a Women’s team and also an Under 20’s team. Canberra Royals Rugby Union Football Club is a not for profit incorporated Club primarily administered and run by volunteers. Sponsorship is a vital component to ensure we can continue to be a part of the local community.

Our sponsorship packages offer great value and include Gold, Silver and Bronze levels. These packages provide many opportunities for you to get involved with Royals as much as you wish and also include many sponsor-only benefits.

Royals also offer specialised ‘Platinum Packages’ if you would like to extend your support to a team sponsorship or raise your support for our club. These can be negotiated directly by contacting Bill Swain via email at royalsrugby@bigpond.com or by mobile on 0437 223 360.

Royals enjoy having our Sponsors involved as much as possible and will be extending an invitation to all our sponsors as VIP guests to the Royals Presentation Night to be held at the Canberra Southern Cross Club. Each sponsor will receive a Royals Supporters Pack and will also be contributing to the registration fees of the player who has introduced these packages to you.

For Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsors, we have tickets to the Brumbies v Sharks Super 15 match on Saturday 10th May. The day will begin from the Royals at Phillip Clubhouse. Platinum & Gold Sponsors will also have access to the Clubs highly sought-after Wallabies –v- France Test match to be held in Melbourne on Saturday 14th June. Royals will be able to purchase tickets on behalf of Platinum and Gold Sponsors to all Wallabies games in Australia. These tickets can be added to your tax deductible Sponsorship Invoice.

After a great season in 2013 with all teams making the semi-finals and 1st Grade making the Grand Final, we are feeling confident about even greater success and exposure for the proud Royals brand in 2014. The club is also embarking on a pre-season tour to the UK & Ireland which is the first tour of its kind for Royals in over 20 years. This has been driven, funded and supported by the players themselves and is a testament to those who have organised this amazing and once in a lifetime opportunity.

Royals will again be providing each Sponsor a pass and season draw indicating when Royals are playing at home with Gold level Sponsors and above enjoying complimentary canteen facilities at our home games. All sponsors are invited to attend our after match function held in our on-ground clubhouse after the game where your logo will be displayed on our Sponsors Board behind the bar whilst you enjoy a drink and some pizza.

I look forward to being able to meet with you and expand on our Sponsorship Packages on offer in 2014

Yours in Rugby

Bill Swain,

Club Manager/Sponsorship Coordinator, Canberra Royals RUFC Inc
