Sponsor wanted for Saturday's game.
« on: September 08, 2021, 09:26:10 PM »
The Club have tweeted that they still have the sponsorship of Saturday's game (live on TV) available.

Contact the Club directly if you are interested.

It's the first live on TV game, played in front of supporters, for 15 years.

Top of the League visitors, live on BT and no Match Day Sponsor on the Wednesday before a Saturday game.

What are we doing as a Club ?   I take it we still haven’t appointed a CM yet.

I am interested to know how much SC is charging  for sponsorship for a game that will be live on TV?

You would think he might like to sponsor the game himself and maybe advertise his own business....just remind me again what he actually does for a living.

No match sponsor this close to the game!? Wow what a joke.
Then again who needs to make money through sponsors when you can just rinse the supporters instead... :banghead;

I thought the Yeovil game was live last year or am I misunderstanding
something. The gate will interesting first game with not as many suppoters#
from away team my guess is 700-900 I hope I'm proved wrong.

I think it is the 'played in front of supporters' bit that makes it the first one for the new club.  I am hopeful of breaking the 1000 mark but not much more but accept that may be optimistic.

Yes Tonym I was thinking about the Torquay where supporters were but
that was only on stream I believe, but I will stick my crowd numbers
700   900 but I say I hope I wrong, you did get big gates before untill
we were top of the league.

I HOPE that you are being on the pessimistic side with that "guestimate" otherwise SC is going to go bonkers with a crowd that small for just the second home game of the season against the league leaders!

I don't think he'll be far out with the higher figure.

900 ish.

Surely sponsors should be queuing up to get a piece of the televised action?

Maybe there is a credibility / trust issue with local businesses????

I think it will just creep over the 1000 figure, but still expect some negative reaction from Mr Cleave as to the “lack of support” shown!

I still don't understand what people think sponsors will get for their money at NL level.  Realistically it is a pretty niche TV audience and in truth many advertisers in the ground are more than likely fans who want to make a contribution to the club rather than looking at it as a purely commercial investment or what sort of return they will get from it.  Either way, pricing has to be seen as 'reasonable' and judging by the number of blank spaces around the ground a large number of previous sponsors didn't think it was this season. 

No match sponsor this close to the game!? Wow what a joke.

Perhaps there isn't the level of sponsorship sufficient to subsidise the club to the extent required, so if not sponsorship and not fans where do you suggest SC now looks to find the money to run the club?  The Sport England grant will only go so far.

One would hope that the owner has done his sums and knows what is needed to compete at this level and indeed where the funds would come from to support it.

Here’s a few ideas what he maybe looking toward.

FA Cup run
NL payment ( each season)
Outside ‘investment’
His own pocket.

At the outset SC declared his intention of bringing EFL Level to the Walks.  Surely as an experienced businessman he has done his homework on how this could be achieved.   Or maybe he is just flying it by the seat of his pants.

No CM in the building, admission prices that are seemingly not attractive to some would indicate our owner has other cards up his sleeve to make the thing work.
