Firstly, massive congratulations to Steven Helps (of S Helps Consulting Ltd) on winning the prestigious “Seat on the Bench” raffle prize as, announced at the recent Meet the Players event. Steve (who is the proud sponsor of Dallas Ehrhardt’s Away Match Jersey) was the lucky winner whose name was randomly selected by our online random generation tool. He will now select a game over the coming weeks to join Ryan and the team on the bench.
On behalf of everyone at the Storm we would like to say a massive “Thank You” to the many sponsors who have already signed up for the 2019/20 Own and Loan scheme. As previously mentioned, ALL proceeds from the Own and Loan scheme goes directly back into the team helping make their relocation as smooth as possible.
However, we still have plenty of jersey’s seeking sponsorship. Maybe like Steven you wish to sponsor a shirt in a company name, or like many other sponsors simply wish to have your names shown on the reverse of the jersey. Jersey sponsorship is not only open to fans who live in or around the Manchester area, but can be secured from anywhere across the UK, Europe or the world. Just like our special friend Jay (in Chicago) who never fails to support club initiatives. To view which jerseys are still for sponsorship please click here: Own and Loan Sponsorship
This week we saw the launch of our annual Kit Club, Locker Room Nameplates and Stick sponsorships. As per previous seasons you will receive a certificate of sponsorship, plus a signed player photograph of your choice. This year based on your feedback, we have consolidated the number of Kit Club items and are running two competitions where you can win two great prizes in recognition of your sponsorship. In addition, we are also offering you the chance to sponsor something of your own choice, for example: #1 Matt Ginn’s Leg Pads or #10 Dallas Ehrhardt Bow Tie. This is a great opportunity for you to use your imagination and sponsor those novelty items.
