    2018 Bigfooty Lions Board Player Sponsorship

    Welcome to the 2018 Bigfooty Brisbane Lions board player sponsorship. Thought I would get the ball rolling for this year. For both newcomers and those who have participated before, I have outlined the relevant information below.

    If you can spare a little bit of cash and want to get involved in the lions board player sponsorship we'd be thrilled to have you on board, whether you've contributed in the past or are wanting to get involved for the first time. I've been apart of the lions boards player sponsorship for a few years now and its a great initiative where we can show our support to the boys and have a chance at winning some great prizes.


    Overview

    The Brisbane Lions enable supporters to sponsor individual players for a year, costing between $380 and $830, depending on the seniority of the player.


    In return, sponsors get an opportunity to meet their player and a signed guernsey or photo, among other goodies.


    Each year BigFooty organises group sponsorships, with minimum contributions starting from just $50. We collectively vote on which players to sponsor, with votes weighted by the amount you've contributed.


    Then once the sponsorships are finalised, we raffle out the individual prizes to participants. Again, the more you've contributed, the more "raffle tickets" you get.


    In essence, it is a cheap way of contributing to our Club, while having a decent chance of "winning a prize" in return.


    It has proved very popular, particularly over the last few years, raising more than $13,500 for the Club, with dozens of users sharing in the "prize-pool".


    This year we'd like to lift the bar yet again, so we're aiming to raise $3000.


    (See Post #4 to keep tabs on how we're tracking)


    If you're interested in taking part, then please read on:

    Bigfooty Group Sponsorship Details


    If you'd like to be a part of our group sponsorship, simply state the amount you'd like to contribute in this thread.


    1. The minimum contribution is $50.

    2. For each $25, a user gets 1 vote for the players they would like to see sponsored.

    3. We will organise a purchase of a sponsorship for whoever is the leading vote getter. If that player is sold out we will arrange for the player with the 2nd most votes to be sponsored.

    4. Any remaining funds will go towards the next sponsorship. Voting for the previous sponsorship will be wiped, and users will be invited to resubmit votes, so try to keep an eye on the thread title so you know when to vote again.

    5. Once all sponsorships are complete, the prizes will be allocated. This is done at the end to give everyone equal opportunity to win prizes. Users are given a raffle entry for each $25 they contribute, and with that raffle entry they choose which prize they would like to be in the pool for. The winners will then be drawn at random, and we will convey postage details to the club so that the winners can receive their prize.


    Bigfooty Contribution


    Each year Chief contributes $200 towards each club's player sponsorship(s)


    All contributors will get a sponsorship badge (aka BigFooty Bling), which can be seen under a poster's username (like my "Beams 12" tag). Posters will be able to choose which of the sponsored players they want on their badge.


    Users who contribute $50-99 will receive a free BigFooty Gold sponsorship for 12 months.Benefits.


    Users who contribute $100+ will receive a free BigFooty platinum sponsorship for 12 months. Benefits.


    Who can be sponsored?


    1. Any of the players on the senior list.

    2. Any of the players on the rookie list.

    3. Not the scholarship players.

    Voting

    There will only be one vote. When you make a pledge please vote for the 5 players you wish to sponsor. For instance:
    5. Rich (most preferred)
    4. Berry
    3. Beams
    2. Paparone
    1. Robinson (least preferred)

    Your votes will only be counted towards the tally once I have received your pledge $$$.
