Just a couple more suggestions on the commercial front has anyone thought about having a newsletter that could carry company logo's etc that could be e-mailed out?
Also as regards player sponsorship would these not be more appealing for business's if we could continually expose them to our audience in terms of annoucing the company and who they sponsor over the tannoy for every game during the team line up, when a play scores etc
"Number 1, John Kennedy sponsored by Jack Richardson
Number 2, Cavell Coo sponsored by Thinkprint etc etc"
Or "Goal on 35 mins sponsored by Brunner Mond, number 9 Adam Warlow!!!!!"
We could then charge a bit more for this area of sponsorship and players like Adam Warlow, Mark Peers will be more expensive than say John Kennedy as they will score more goals thus meaning more exposure for that particular company.
It would also open up another area of sponsorship such as sponsored half time, sponsored subs etc for very little out put on our part.
