Hi All,

Its come to that time of the year again where we look forward to season 2020 and part of that is our commitment to player sponsorships.

Firstly thanks Wacky Tiger for sorting it out last year.

Last year we raised enough funds to sponsor Bachar Houli, Kamydn McIntosh & Luke English (late half price offer from the club). We have the opportunity again this year to continue with those sponsorship's, possibly change the players that we wish to sponsor or even add or subtract players.

At the moment I will work off 2 players being the number and see how we go.


2020 price: $1,250 per player. This is a reduced rate as a thank you for our continued support.



Included in the packages are the following


PLAYER SPONSOR BENEFITS

*below subject to change as it is the 2019 info until i get the 2020 info
  • Be one of ten personal sponsors of a member of the 2020 Richmond playing group
  • One invitation to a pre-season meet and greet event with the 2020 Richmond playing group
  • One invitation to the annual Player Sponsor Dinner
  • NEW One invitation to an exclusive football analysis presenation at Richmond Football Club
  • Signed guernsey by your sponsored player
  • A digital copy of your photo with your sponsored player
  • Your personal or business name displayed in the players facilities at Punt Rd Oval
  • NEW Personalised Player Sponsor membership card
  • Player Sponsor medallion

As with previous seasons with multiple people pledging their support there will be raffles to win tickets to events and merchandise and what not.

At this stage, we're just looking for pledges and expressions of interest from anyone who wants to participate again for 2018. Last year each share price was set at $50 so unless there's any major objections, we'll keep that the same.

If making a pledge, please be sure to mention how much you'd like to contribute.


For sponsoring, you will receive the following (refer to under my name for examples of badges):

  • A 2019 Player Sponsor Badge
  • 1x Player Badge (of your choice from our sponsored players) per $50 share
  • 2x Raffle Tickets per $50 share that can be allocated in any combination towards the following prizes (I'll explain this further below):
-One Invitation to a meet and greet event with the 2020 Richmond AFL Playing group
-One invitation to the annual Player Sponsorship dining experience
-One invitation to an exclusive football analysis presentation at the Richmond Football Club
-Signed merchandise piece by your player


Note: I'm waiting to hear back from the club on the function dates and will advise in due course.

In addition, BigFooty provides the following to anyone that contributes towards their boards player sponsorships (refer here for details on these memberships):

  • $50 contributions - BigFooty Gold
  • $100+ contributes - BigFooty Platinum

Prize Raffle Explanation
In previous years we've just put everyone against every prize unless they've said otherwise. This hasn't really turned out to be practical as many people found it hard to attend the functions. By having raffle tickets this allows people to put their name into the prizes they want. Basically we want to ensure a fair and even distribution of prizes.

To nominate your options you'll need to tell myself once you make your bank transfer for the player sponsorship. The options can be in any combination. For example if you had three sponsorships shares ($150) then you would have 6 tickets. You could allocate 2 to the Dinner, 1 to the BBQ & Tour and 3 to the Guernsey. If you don't care about the guernsey, or figure more people will go for the guernsey, then you might put 2 tickets in each of the functions. The intention of providing the dates is so you can confirm in advance if you can attend.

Payment (IMPORTANT: Don't send any yet - need to determine if we have enough interest across the board first. If/Once we have enough interest/pledges, we will then start the collection).

There will be new bank account details this year.

More to follow.

.Please make sure you enter your BigFooty account name as the deposit description so we know it's from you.

If you have any questions or part of the above needs further explanation, just ask. Feel free to share your own experiences to help others make up their mind as well.

For anyone new wishing to join in heres a bit a testamonial from a poster whos had an enjoyable experience through winning a raffle


Fortunate enough to get a guernsey at the sponsors dinner held at the Albert Park Pavilion. A great evening for all in attendance with Jack and Alex MC' ing. Hilarity aplenty when several of the players played the "Guess what I'm saying with a mouth retractor in place game?". I don't think there was a dry eye in the room for this.
Seated at our table was Ivan Soldo, who was extremely generous with his time in chatting with everyone. Dinner was very enjoyable and the drinks flowed as the night continued. We each had our photo taken with our allocated player. Then following dessert and more stage antics everyone was free to roam the room and mingle with the players who were all very accommodating. I had a great night and would highly recommend going along if the opportunity arises



If anyone else has some nice stories from players sponsorship's feel free to share.

So if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks on behalf of the Richmond Mod team

I have asked about the possibility of sponsoring 1 AFL player and 1 AFLW player, once i know what options we have i will let everyone know.


With the current pledges and left over money from previous years we have enough to sponsor 1 player at the moment.


The club are wanting to know how many we can sponsor by the 11th of November, so if you're keen please express your interest to pledge ASAP so we can factor everyone in.


note: $$ isn't needed right this second.

Put me in for $100. I'll decide on the AFLW when you get details.
Put me in for $100. I have sponsored Bachar and Kamdyn from the start, so I'd prefer to keep it that way. and yes I am superstitious.

And once again a huge thank you to Michaels for organising!!
Bump me up to $100 please
I'd love to contribute two shares to player sponsorship.
I'll take $100 again.

Got the Play Sponsor dinner and Luke English. great kid. Hope we keep him and he stays fit. Like to sponsor him if possible.

thanks everyone for your support!

with these added pledges it takes our total to $1,863

we have enough to cover 1 player at the moment, need another $613 to reach the two player mark.

I'm yet to hear about AFLW yet, hopefully hear back tomorrow after having the public holiday yesterday.

UPDATE:

The club are in the middle of finalizing the details but there definitely will be an AFLW Player Sponsorship option, as soon as exact details are known they will pass them through to me.

However they did say that if we can get enough together for 2 x AFL and 1 x AFLW that we can look at a better deal to fit all 3 in.

So if you have interest in donating on the AFLW front, make your pledge and advise if you want it to be part of the AFLW or AFL.

That way if you stipulate you only want to donate if it is for an AFLW player and it doesn't go ahead for whatever reason, you aren't going to be out of pocket.

Roachy8 Phar Ace are you happy for me to put you down for the extra $50 for an AFLW player based on the above, that if it doesn't go ahead you wont be locked into it?

UPDATE:

We currently have $2,413 in pledges which includes $$ left over from last year, the yearly $200 contribution from BigFooty and any specific AFLW Pledges* as we are pushing to get an overall total to cover 2 x AFL and 1 x AFLW.

So we have 1 player definitely locked in and are $87 off having the 2nd player locked in.

Off to a great start!


Would love to see a few more new people jump on board, it is a great time to be involved in these kind of things. The club is in a great spot and it's also a chance to make some history by Sponsoring our first AFLW player!

I'm one share at this stage, I would like more and probably can but I don't know yet - so assume less for now

Just a quick tag to firstly say thanks heaps for your player sponsorship support in 2019. Because of our continued support the club has again offered us a reduced rate for 2020 which is fantastic!

Is there any interest in going around again in 2020 for the Player Sponsorship which we are hoping to also secure an AFLW Player as well!
