Own a Team or Own the Whole Club! - 2014 Sponsorship Opportunities

If you are interested in becoming a Sponsor, please click here to enroll.
You can pay online with a credit card, or pay in-person by check.
If you have any questions please contact Greg DiPalo, Sponsorship Director. 

Our league has grown by leaps and bounds in the past couple of years, and that's due to the countless hours our board of directors and volunteers put in. This year we added 6 new teams, and were recognized for having the largest representation of football players in the Suffolk County PAL football league. Compared to other sports though, we're still in our infancy. Our goal is to increase the popularity of football in the community and we don't believe you have to be in Texas, Alabama, or Florida for that to happen. We have all the ingredients right here in our own backyard, and many of you have already stepped up to be part of the football movement.  This year will be another exciting year for the league and there are many opportunities for sponsors, and families to get involved on a grassroots level.  We are excited to announce the following 2014 sponsorship opportunities:

OWN THE LEAGUE or OWN YOUR OWN TEAM (kind of):
Ever dreamed of owning your own football team or the whole organization? Well this year you can (kind of). In an effort generate additional donations for the growth of our league we are looking for sponsorship on a team and league level. This is a great opportunity to get your business in front of the community on a weekly basis and is better than traditional forms of advertising where you typically place an ad and then cross your fingers hoping for results. With this opportunity you'll get weekly exposure from a number of channels described in more detail below. We think you'll agree the best customers come by word of mouth. Our social marketing, and email network that we've built is "word of mouth on steroids". See the opportunities below and contact us immediately if you want to own a team,  or better yet the whole league!

$100 Shareholder (for families):
Like a Green Bay Packer shareholder! We'll list your family name on our website and periodically announce your support at various league events throughout the season. You're basically a VIP of the league and will be officially recognized as such. You can be interviewed for a 30 second spot and featured on the NPYFC internet TV channel.

$250 Institutional Shareholder (for businesses):
Nope, it's not Miller Time, it's (insert your own business name) Time! As an institutional shareholder you'll get a full listing on our website and face book page. We'll also Tweet about you periodically throughout the season, and we'll mention your support at various league events throughout the season. You can be interviewed for a 1 minute commercial and featured on the NPYFC channel. 

$1000 "Own a Team for the Season"(for businesses):
Move over Jimmy Johnson! As a prestigious team owner, you'll get all the benefits of an Institutional Shareholder, AND we'll match you up with a team for the season and you can imagine you're up in the booth at MetLife Stadium! As a team owner you'll get an "owner's sweatshirt", and we may designate you to be a chain holder or play counter at games.  We'll headline the team name with your business name throughout the season in all print and online references including the weekly recaps that are posted in the Observer, Patch, Website, YouTube channel, and all of our social networks. For example, all references to the team will be “Joe's Pizza 5/6 Tigers".  We'll create and hang an owner’s banner at every home game at VETS field, and you'll get a commemorative "owner’s plaque" with your team picture. The 2014 banners will be significantly larger than last year. You'll also get first right of refusal on owning the team in future seasons. This is a fun way to be a part of our league, and there are limited numbers of teams so contact us immediately if you want to own one!

$3,500 "Own the Whole Club for a Season" (for businesses):
This is the big time; you're a “1 percenter”. You own a football club? Well, kind of. As the clu owner you get ALL of the benefits described above, plus; every player will wear a patch on their jersey with your business logo on it, and we'll request your presence to stand alongside the league publicity rep at all events and speaking engagements that the league has.  We may also designate you to be a chain holder or play counter at games. You'll be mentioned in countless advertising opportunities online, in our social network, with the press, in print, and in person. Your business name will be part of the main header on our website and social network, and our marketing team will make your face and/or business logo a household name by the end of the season if it isn't already. The value of the Internet and social marketing alone that you'll be part of is greater than $10,000. So if you're ready to have a lot of fun this season and become a local celebrity and brand, contact us immediately. There is only one slot for this.  

 (*although some of the terms above may convey ownership or an actual stake in the organization;  the terms are for entertainment purposes only and limited to the perks described. There are no official or legal rights associated with the sponsorships.)
