Getting Paintball Sponsorship Requests

Posted in paintball events, paintball field, paintball sponsor with tags , on January 12, 2009 by calebtheredwood

Working at the field here, we get TONS of requests from individuals and half organized teams for sponsorship requests. We love that people are interested in playing more and being dedicated to our field. However, people are asking for new paintball guns and everything that goes with it. Jungle Falls offers a paintball sponsorship program that an organized active team can apply for. When people read it and find out they aren’t getting a new DM9 with all the ups, they get discouraged and don’t pursue the sponsorship. This sponsorship agreement clearly lays out a long term relationship with Jungle Falls and is better than most sponsorships out there in addition to being available to entry level teams in both tournament and scenario play.

A great example of an article is: Getting Paintball Sponsorships for your Team by Wolfpack Paintball Team. They have several articles about getting sponsored including links to active sponsorship applications and resumes. We know and play with this team. They don’t have a lot of sponsors, but they do have some very long term relationships with the sponsors they do have. Their philosophy is, few is better.

We always hope to be able to help out teams. There are a number of team sponsored by Jungle Falls, some that have been there for 5+ years. They participate and help out around the field regularly. These are the type of teams that we are looking to build relationships with. Please don’t let this post be discouraging, just a little bit of an education. The sponsorship¬† programs has the following benefits that increase over years:

  • Pro Shop Discounts
  • Field Paint Purchase Discounts
  • Field Fee Discounts
  • Help Building a Team Resume
  • Uniform Discounts(Free Uniforms after 3 years)
  • Exposure and Personal time with Major Vendors

Please take the time to start a team resume and have a good attitude toward the field. There are a lot of rules that go along with the sponsorship. It’s reasonable though and we want both parties to benefit.

In other news, this weekends odd man out ~ 4 man cash dash tournament went off with a bag. 17 teams played their hearts out. We are trying to come up with some way to host a reball tournament. There is currently no way to do this yet without about 50 billion refs and video cameras on every player, lol. Someday we will figure it out =)

2009 equipment is starting to fill up the proshop. We appreciate everyone taking advantage of the 2008 price blow outs. We were able to clear most of the ’08 merchandise out in time to restock with new model year guns and gear. Happy New Year!!
