CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

The AUFC is considered to be the largest amateur football club in Australia...

The AUFC is easily the most successful amateur football club in the State, having won an unsurpassed 84 premiership's in its history...

That said, “If winning is all there is, we want no part of it”: a phrase famously coined by AUFC living legend, Chocka Bloch. Chocka once also described the footy club as “a social club loosely based around football”.

Such descriptions go a long way to explaining the fun that goes with being a part of the AUFC, even if they don’t quite explain the success the club has had.

Sponsor Levels

With a range of benefits available to sponsors, the AUFC will work with our sponsors to develop a tailored package to suit the specific needs, profile and promotional budgets of each corporate partner.

We would be delighted to consult with you to identify a package that is appropriate for your organisation.

Sponsorship opportunities have a range of benefits, outlined in detail in the appendix titled ‘Sponsor Packages’.

Sponsor Benefits

Advertising

One of the most significant benefits for sponsors involved with the AUFC is the opportunity to raise the profile and awareness of their brand across a vast audience, a wide age bracket and directly to University students and the large University Football Club Community.

Sales Activities

The AUFC will grant the sponsor exclusive rights within the product category for AUFC hosted events. This is only offered to sponsors who secure rights as an AUFC Platinum or Gold Sponsor.

Naming Rights

AUFC Platinum and Gold Sponsors are offered naming rights to one ‘special event’ as part of their overall investment.

Exclusivity

The AUFC will ensure that no other competing companies or products (as determined by the AUFC) will be permitted to promote via the AUFC. Exclusivity is only offered to Platinum or Gold Sponsors.

Experiential Marketing

AUFC Platinum and Gold sponsors have the opportunity to develop innovative and interactive activities, competitions and/or to host stalls at AUFC events (subject to approval from the AUFC).

Network

Being involved with the AUFC also provides ready access to a pool of talented, motivated, youthful, team-orientated undergraduates, graduates and professionals, both male and female.

More Information?

The AUFC recognises that sponsorship is a relationship between two parties in which there is an exchange of benefits (whether corporate or otherwise).

Accordingly, the AUFC is committed to forming partnerships with organisations and brands that embody similar values.

The AUFC is a proven vehicle through which our sponsors can achieve the following objectives ~

– Enhance brand awareness across a range of age brackets

– Engage in targeted branding, sampling and sales activities

– Encourage brand advocacy and influence buying decisions via positive exposure to the brand.
