It seems a bit strange to be writing to you about soccer, when there is snow on the ground and the temperatures are so chilly but before you know it the kids of west Toronto will be playing soccer in their bright coloured jerseys hopefully displaying the logo of your business or organization.
The bond between Toronto High Park FC and our sponsors has been strong over our clubs 32 year history, with some original sponsors still supporting our teams! The bond shows itself with the players as they identify themselves closely as "Team Grillway", or "Team Cecil Ward". Without the generous support of our sponsors, our club would need to significantly raise the fees each player pays and now more than ever - with further field fee increases from the City of Toronto and the Toronto District School Board - we need our sponsor community to continue their support.
As a result of the substantial field rental costs, our sponsorship rates have been adjusted to reflect this new reality. The cost of sponsoring a house league team is $600 for the 2014 season, and with this generous contribution, each sponsor will receive:
Wide exposure of your business or organization throughout the catchment of our club, including the neighbourhoods of: The Junction, Roncesvalles Village, Bloor West Village, High Park and west Toronto. Should you wish to offer a special promotion to our approximately 4,000 registrants, we would provide you with various venues to reach our membership in a mutually-beneficial manner.
Your business ororganization's corporate logo would be displayed on a team jersey of your choice for our Outdoor Season, as well as for our fast growing Indoor House League program (please note, that logos will typically be printed in white or black on a single coloured jersey)
Your business or organization's corporate logo, along with hyperlink to your website displayed on the Club website.
At the end of the season, a plaque with your Outdoor season's team picture to display publicly in your business or office.
Further opportunities to participate at prominant local weekend tournaments throughout the season.
Toronto High Park FC is now the second largest youth soccer league in the Toronto Soccer Association, with over 4,000 registrants playing on over 200 teams. It offers an excellent opportunity to promote your business and raise your profile within the community - and support youth fitness and fun at the same time! It is what we would call a "Win-Win-Win" opportunity for our Sponsors, our Club and our Kids.
