2016 Business Partnership Packages

On behalf of the committee and players of the Bentleigh Football Netball Club and the Dragon Club we would like to thank you for providing the opportunity for our Club representative to present a partnership/advertising proposal to your organization.  We never take our  business partners for granted and understand that without developing mutually beneficial relationships with our business partners that local community clubs like ours would struggle to survive.

Our aim is to achieve long term relationships that are mutually beneficial for both parties, giving our business partners both value for money and promotion of their business.  We are aware that  business partners seek return on investment and believe we have the network and promotional capacity to ensure this in season 2016 and beyond.

The challenges for the Bentleigh Football Netball Club lie not only on the field, but off the field.  Whilst the club provides a great opportunity for those living in our community to both play and support Australian Rules Football there are significant costs associated with fielding 3 football teams (Seniors, Reserves and Under 19’s.) and 3 Netball teams. Business partnership plays a significant part in allowing the club to meet its costs. We are a not for profit organisation, run by volunteers.  This means that your sponsorship would go directly towards the running of the club and support of our community partners.

We currently have a registered playing list totalling 140, including netballers.

These numbers are supported by off field personnel and social members totalling approx. 40.

We have 410 past players registered on our official mailing list and our junior affiliate club, the Bentleigh Juniors, have a list totalling 250 players plus parents and club officials and the Bentleigh Auskick Program has over 170 children enrolled.

All of these members added together allows us to provide significant community exposure for your business.

Season 2013 saw the introduction of a strategic business plan implemented by the Coterie group.  This plan was proven to be successful again in 2014, 2015 and it is the intention of all of the coterie group to be 100% committed to continuing this plan in 2016 and beyond.

We have a football club committee comprising experienced members, the Executive of which is as follows:

President: Paul D Dimattina

Vice Presidents: Netball: Brett Cooper

Vice Presidents: Financial Control: Chris Sharp

General Manager: Allan Riddle

Treasurer: Paul Daly

Manager of Football Operations: Tony Allamby

Social and Communications Manager: Ben Zylbersztajn

Social and Communications Manager: Luke Holmesby

It is our belief that the business expertise and experience of our Coterie Group and our Football Committee sees us well placed to successfully provide and maintain a strong business/working relationship with your company.

The Dragon Club provided a range of standard President’s Club Sponsorship packages:

Silver – $750

Gold – $1,200

Advertising and sponsorship packages can be tailored specifically to suit the needs and requirements of our business partners.
