Football in this Country is going through a huge change in culture. Whilst traditional methods of business such as governance and rules are still in existence, Hampshire FA is a leading provider of Football Development Initiatives, which are delivered through courses, workshops and taster sessions.
Since becoming Incorporated in April 2000, Hampshire FA is now far more commercially astute and recognises the need for marketing and strategic planning to secure the long term future of the game in our County. Hampshire FA is a Limited Company by Guarantee and a non-profit making organisation. Therefore, any year end surplus is ploughed back into the game through development activities such as safeguarding children, facility investment and youth football to name but a few.
There are many opportunities for partnerships to be formed with local organisations and outside agencies through marketing and sponsorship. We operate over 30 County Cup Competitions, with over 1500 teams competing, and a girl’s representative team, who compete in a regional competition. We offer advertising in our County Handbook, Networks Magazine (widely regarded as best County Magazine in the Country), Cup Final Programmes and on our new dynamic website, HampshireFA.com which attracts over 1,000 separate visitors a day and this figure is continuing to grow as we integrate online member services.
We offer County Cup Sponsors the opportunity to have a marketing presence at the venue of the Final to promote their business, products and services, in addition to any banners they wish to erect around the perimeter of the pitch and distribution of flyers.
Hampshire FA is committed to ensuring that all partners receive maximum exposure and recognition of being a supporter of grassroots football. Season 2011/12 saw The FA’s National Game Strategy extended from 2012 to 2015 and with it nearly all our commercial partner’s extended their agreements to 2015 and beyond which highlights the excellent level of service we provide.
Even though we have a really good number of partners at present, there are still further opportunities to become involved with Hampshire FA and support grassroots football in the county.
