If you’ve visited the social media profiles of Club Insure over the last couple of weeks, you’ll have seen that we’re currently running a competition.
We’re offering grassroots players of any sport, the chance to win sponsorship for the season worth £250. That can be spent however the player desires. It doesn’t matter to us how the player and club decide to spend the money; pay for new equipment, kit, a match day programme etc.
We only care that we’re offering support to clubs; believe us, if we could give it to every single one, we would.
Because we know how important even every bit of support is for clubs. In our 20 years as a brokerage, we’ve seen the all the pressures that come with running a club. We know how tight bottom lines are, and we appreciate the importance of a strong membership.
So for us, the player sponsorship prize isn’t just £250 (although that’s a good chunk of money for a club). If we can make it easier for one player to continue playing, or for a team to afford a scorekeeper on Saturday, or a new set of balls at the beginning of the season, we know just how important that is.
One single player playing for the season could mean hundreds of pounds for a club in match fees and post match drinks.
