-- Soccer Support has launched its new 2012/13 membership options with the aim of modernizing soccer clubs to cope and be aware of the demands and opportunities afforded to them in a post GFC economy.
By offering memberships and working directly with grassroots clubs across the country, Soccer Support helps create new revenue streams, an increased exposure to sponsors and players and most importantly future planning and sustainability measures, in what is a saturated and extremely competitive sporting market.
Soccer Support CEO, Ryan Ginard said that the new membership options have been created over the past quarter in consultation with clubs, fans and administrators across the country and on the back of a mood for change at the grassroots of the game.
“The majority of clubs are run on the back of volunteer hours and that the ‘heavy lifting’ of writing grants submissions and chasing sponsors are a luxury rather than a necessity for the overall health of a club. Soccer Support was created to fill this void and provide an affordable option that can reap huge rewards.
“We are proud to say that we have worked with the grassroots of the sport to design membership packages that deliver on the most important issues teams continuously face. By joining the Soccer Support community clubs will have access to our sponsorship brokerage, marketing, advocacy, lobbying, business planning and grant writing services.
“Soccer can realize its potential here in the U.S. but that will take time and must come from a strong grassroots platform. We are here to provide that catalyst to growth and hope that clubs will see the appeal of joining our community” Ginard said.
The first five memberships sold will receive a complimentary upgrade to the next membership level. For more information on becoming a member of Soccer Support email email@example.com
