Adding Sponsor Logos To Your Netball Uniform

Sponsorship fundraising is an important aspect of the annual operational budget for many netball clubs and netball associations. Sponsors are drawn to community sport because of the marketing and visibility offered. They expect real returns on their investment into your netball club, and it is your responsibility to deliver on that promise.

The majority of sponsorship models will offer signage perks, such as a logos on club uniforms. This includes pieces from the playing, training, officials and supporters uniform. Although Netball Dresses are not typically used to place sponsor logos, there are lots of other options to still obtain sponsor funding using club uniforms.

In this article we provide key information for successfully adding sponsor logos to your club uniform.

Playing Bibs

Including a sponsor name or logo on a Custom Velcro-Patch Netball Bib is an excellent way to provide local businesses a “spot” on your club dresses. Despite its small size, this area is highly visible on both the back and front of netball dresses. Use the funds raised to help fund uniform purchases or invest elsewhere in the club.

What is the process?

Agree on a design

  • Request a design and KPI Sports will create the base design that accommodates room for sponsors in visible positions, without detracting from your unique pattern and colours.

Secure sponsorship funding

  • Finding sponsors does not need to be difficult. Start planning early to give your club the best opportunity to obtain funding and support from local business.
  • Run a campaign to secure pledges. To learn more about Attracting and Retaining Sponsors read our Club Guide.

Collect the right logo files

  • Making your sponsors’ logo look clean on club uniforms is an important part of the value you are offering.
  • An acceptable logo file should be in one of the following formats: Vector (.eps), PDF or AI (Adobe Illustrator)
  • TIP: Enlarge the logo file to maximum view to see if it will stay clear. A logo that pixilates will not be appropriate for printing on your sublimated uniform.

Show value and appreciation!

  • When entering a sponsorship deal with a local business, ensure the sponsor is acknowledged on social media and in other club marketing materials.
  • If you want sponsors to return for the next season, you must give them exposure and demonstrate you value their contribution. To learn more about how to Attract and Retain Sponsors read our Club Guide.
