Our FA Cup campaign so far mirrors our campaign from last season where we defeated league one opposition en route to a third round tie against our friends at Brighton.
These proved to be two highly entertaining matches with the Premiership chasing side just edging us out and this seasons campaign continues with a first round tie against Alfreton Town at the Racecourse on Saturday.
Match and matchball sponsorship opportunities
For this first round tie we have match and matchball sponsorships available at greatly reduced prices. Both packages benefit from a two course meal from our superb Bamfords restaurant.
This is a perfect opportunity to highlight your business as a commercial partner of a community football club whilst also entertaining your clients in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Your package also includes exclusive seating in the Executive Box, match programmes, team sheets, half time refreshments and you will also be the first people to find out todays team tactics with an insight from assistant manager Billy Barr.
Match ball sponsors have the opportunity to present the matchball to the match officials and team captains on the pitch prior to kick off whilst match sponsors have the honour to crown the man of the match.
Both packages have been reduced for this match and include PA, scoreboard and programme coverage with the matchball package costing only £195 + VAT for 4 people with our popular match sponsorship costing £595 + VAT for ten people.
