2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

York City Knights have a number of sponsorship opportunities available for their landmark 2020 Betfred Championship season – the first in the brand new York Community Stadium.

With the 2020 playing kit sponsorship already successfully agreed, there are still a range of opportunities to take advantage of that will suit all budgets.

After winning the League 1 title in 2018 and an incredible third place finish in the 2019 Betfred Championship, there has never been a better time to associate your company with the Knights brand.

York’s average home attendance grew by an astonishing 42% year-on-year in 2019, and that number is set to grow further as we prepare to move into our brand new 8,500 capacity community stadium facility in Huntington at the beginning of 2020.

Our online and social media presence continues to grow exponentially, with over 3,600 followers on Instagram, over 4,000 followers on Facebook and over 13,300 followers on Twitter, regularly culminating in monthly engagement figures of 2 MILLION impressions, views and interactions, as well as an increasing number of fans opted in to the mailing list for our weekly newsletter and a wide-reaching audience at yorkcityknights.com.

Preparation for the 2020 first team playing squad is already well underway ahead of a return to pre-season training in November, with a number of high profile new signings and player retentions already secured thanks to an increase in playing budget by an impressive 35%.

Player sponsorship is an opportunity to take a personal interest in the performance and development of a chosen player, whilst gaining significant PR and advertising benefits.

For just £850 (+VAT) you or your company will enjoy a sponsorship package that includes:

  • A match-worn shirt of the player of your choice
  • 2 complimentary season tickets
  • Multiple announcements on match day tannoy/PA pre post and during the game
  • Your (company) name featured in the match day program
  • 2 Boardroom passes for the game of your choice (subject to capacity)
  • 2 Challenge Cup Final tickets for Wembley 2020
  • Regular mentions across our social media platforms

And for just £350 (+VAT) you or your company can be one of the first ever to showcase a 3m x 1m pitch-side advertising board in the brand new Community Stadium for the 2020 Betfred Championship season. (Price includes production)

This is an opportunity not to be missed to promote your company to a wider audience, both in the stadium and at home on TV, the #OurLeague app and regular social media highlights!
