Roller derby is grassroots and DIY. But this exciting new sport doesn’t come free – we have to cover substantial costs for our training space, insurance, uniforms, travel and coaching to name but a few. In addition to these day-to-day running costs, each bout costs over £1,000 to put on.
Sponsorship by local and national businesses is vital for ensuring roller derby continues to feature in Bristol’s sports and entertainment landscape. The interest in roller derby within the Bristol community has been overwhelming. Bristol Roller Derby regularly attracts 400-500-strong audiences at its public bouts. Our audience is broad and diverse. It draws from those who enjoy full-contact and competitive sports as well as those who seek out exciting and unique entertainment, something that’s just a bit different.
If your business would like to support Bristol Roller Derby and be associated with a sport that is fast, fun and furious, there are a number of ways in which you can get involved:
1. If your business is interested in becoming a formal sponsor of Bristol Roller Derby, please get in touch and we’ll get right back to you. We have a range of sponsorship packages to offer which might suit you. But we’re always open to new ideas too and would be very happy to discuss a tailored approach with you in detail over the phone. Or, better still, over a cup of tea and a cake.
2. Advertise in our bout programme: we offer reasonable rates with a ¼ pg starting at just £25! Options are available for ¼ page, ½ page and full page ads in our A5 bout programmes. View examples of previous programmes.
3. If you are a local craft seller, have roller derby related merchandise for sale, or want to sell anything that may interest us and our audience at our bouts, contact us for a stall in our Derby Mall.
