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

Announcement:

Our first AFLW player that we will be sponsoring for 2020 is Tayla Stahl.

I didn't want to take the easy option with this and sponsor one of our key players, I wanted to look a bit deeper and really get behind a player who could be the next big thing.

2019 VFLW was her first season with us and she topped our goal kicking for the season. She has some serious X factor and has huge upside, could make a huge impact in AFLW.

Her story isn't too different to Marlion Picketts story, bit of a troubled past from her younger years but has worked really hard to get herself into this position, and her form just simply couldn't be ignored.



Welcome to the Richmond BigFooty Player Sponsor family Tayla!


Our 2nd AFLW player is TBC.

UPDATE:

I'll start to send out PM's with bank details hopefully this afternoon.

We are $377 short of being able to achieve 2 x AFL Mens and 2 x AFLW players, which would be a bloody huge effort.


Was anyone from the below list keen to go around again after your previous years of support to this program?

We have hit the total required to secure a 2nd AFLW player which I'll announce tomorrow.

However posters can still jump on board and sponsor.

We are building up extra $$ which may be used on another player if a special offer arises or it helps kick start us next year.
Exellent, at the moment only keen on AFLW players as I'm a AFLW member this year only(and the coming years)
Fantastic work by you Michaels and all involved with player sponsorship

Yeah you can definitely direct your sponsorship towards AFLW specifically if you would like, a few other posters have also done this :)

If you wish to jump on board let me know how many shares and I'll add you to the list.

The support for our AFLW team is fantastic!

UPDATE:

I am happy to announce that the 2nd AFLW player we will be sponsoring for 2020 is Hannah Burchell.

Hannah is a lifelong Richmond supporter who is known for her speed and two way running. She brings a lot of energy to the playing group and is very 'Richmondy' which we all love.

She has a lot of upside and will be wearing the number 9 this year in the AFLW!
