Sponsorship & Partnership Opportunities with Blackburn United Community Football Club

Spnsorship Opportunities

Thanks to a partnership with SportScotland and West Lothian Council, the Club will soon move into a new facility in the centre of Blackburn and hope that this is an ideal time to further engage with both the localcommunity and with local businesses to forge relationships that can hopefully be of mutual advantage.

Blackburn United FC has represented the community of Blackburn for over thirty years and, in that time, has been fortunate enough to produce several players who have gone on to forge worthy careers in the game, including ex-Liverpool and St. Mirren striker Alan Irvine and current Dunfermline Ath player and ex-Gretna Scottish Cup Final captain Chris Innes. Many other youngsters have come through the affiliated under-age sides in the village to play with United and perform at a good, competitive level of football. As part of the Blackburn United Community Football Club we also run a soccer sevens school for children at ages 10 and under and field sides from under 11's to under 19’s as well as a girls side. Players and management from the adult side supplement the coaching of various age group sides. The Club is also fully SFA and WLC accredited.

A successful Blackburn United brings interest not only to the Club but to the town of Blackburn itself and it is our intention to continue to try and place football at the heart of the community. However, it is only with the enthusiastic support, backing and involvement of local people and local businesses that this can continue to be the case. To progress the work of providing sporting opportunities we, like every football club, need the support of the entire town and we hope to engage further with the community while forging closer links with its business community.

To that end, shirt sponsorship is the principal form of sponsorship available to businesses. Association with the team through this type of kit branding ensures that your brand is exposed to active people and sports and fans throughout the local area and provides coverage in the sports pages of the local newspaper. There are various shirt sponsorship packages available and the benefits of each are outlined under the Shirt Sponsorship Package Choices panel opposite.

To discuss what package may suit you best please contact Club President Ian McGinty on 0776 4681679 or at blackburn.united@googlemail.com

Alternatively, if you would like to arrange to get together to chat about the Club's aims and objectives on moving into the new ground, the coming together of the Club with the village's youth football set up and how you might like to become involved in the raising of the overall profile of football in Blackburn then I can also be contacted at home on 01506 418209 as well as on 07764681679. If you would like to come along and simply support the team then season ticket packages similar to those offered last season will soon be available.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this page and I hope that I might hear from you at your convenience to discuss matters further.

Yours faithfully, Ian McGinty, President, Blackburn United FC.
