With the 2016-17 season rapidly approaching, the football club are on the lookout for sponsorship, and it is your opportunity to lend a hand to your local team and community.

Now could not be a better chance for a company to get involved with sponsoring the club, with the conversion to a Community Benefit Society in the offing.

The club will be setting up a whole host of links with the community, starting at base with the creation of the under 18s academy this summer.

This opens up a large number of sponsorship opportunities for local companies large and small.

Firstly, the club are on the lookout for shirt sponsors. The front of the away kit is still available to sponsor, and Avenue are looking for sponsors for the rear of both home and away shirts.

Around the ground, advertising boards are always available at a very affordable rate, as are programme adverts both full and half-page.

One exciting opportunity arising for the new season is the sponsorship of Avenue’s new matchday teamsheet. With approximately 1,500 distributed over the course of the season, the opportunity to have a logo or even a small advertisement on the teamsheet is a very promising and affordable one.

Other opportunities may also be available, such as website adverts or even sponsorship of the new stands in place at the Horsfall Stadium.
