SPONSORSHIP

Back the Blacks in 2018!

All sponsors naturally join in the joythe priceless gift – of enabling young men and women to become the best they can be, both in football and in life.

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

Our ‘reach’ is unparalleled – literally global.
We can tailor a corporate package to suit any potential sponsor.

You don’t have to have played for the Blacks to sponsor us – the benefits of sponsorship apply to all.

PLAYER SPONSORSHIP

This is a highly valued sponsorship category, as it covers the fees for the players and allows each player to take the field each week. 

As a truly amateur club that does not pay players, we rely heavily on the support of our player sponsors!

What We Do Best

The AUFC has a long and proud history, with over 100 years on the field..

We are highly Successful

The Blacks have an unsurpassed record in Australian amateur football history. 84 flags (including 28 in Division 1) are a testament to that.

We promote Diversity

We are a proud part of the Adelaide University sporting community, however, membership is not confined to those studying at the UOA. All are eligible and all are welcome!

We are a Community

We find that those who come to the club inevitably stay: the world’s greatest football club does tend to provide a rather compelling environment. It is a place where you make friends for life.

h
We are committed to the fine principles of University Sport

In particular our Constitution demands that we play for no remuneration other than the joy that comes with playing for the love of the game. Everybody at the Blacks is treated equally.’

We like the Social Life

“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”.

With these ideologies in mind, sponsorship is being sought for the AUFC…

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

As such, 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:

Targeted Branding

Engage in targeted branding, sampling and sales activities.

Brand Awareness
