Developing strategic partnerships and signing sponsorship deals are key to growing our league and offering the fans, players, coaches and staff the experience they deserve. The ever-increasing audience for, and participation in, Ultimate presents the opportunity for mutually beneficial relationships with companies interested in reaching the growing Ultimate community. The sport itself has the benefit of being exciting enough to carry beyond the boundaries of its traditional audience and accessible enough to be used as an outreach tool, particularly for youth. This makes it a great investment for the right company.
The MLU has numerous partnership possibilities ranging from simple local sponsorship to national, video-production placement. We offer jersey sponsorships similar to most soccer teams and league-wide partnerships tied into all our events and initiatives. Partners can be involved in our games, our clinics, our youth tournaments, or all of the above. We are also open to creative new approaches and exclusive “official ____ of the MLU” style arrangements. Anything that helps to grow the sport and improve the fan experience is worthy of consideration.
Developing partnerships is a continuous effort, and we have some great people devoted to it. That doesn’t mean we wouldn’t love to have your help as well. If you are as passionate about Ultimate as we are, there is a good chance you are constantly talking about it. Why not turn all that talk into a chance to help the sport and make a little extra cash for yourself? Why not take advantage of our Sponsorship Introduction Program?
The program is a relatively simple one. It doesn’t require a hard sell or any pushiness. As the name suggests, all you need to do is make an introduction. If you know someone in a company that might be interested in working with the MLU, you just fill out the SIP form on our website and include the following info:
- Full Name of Your Contact and Their Position
- Name of the Company
- Company Address
- Contact Phone Number
- Contact Email
- Brief Description of Your Relationship
- Assurance that the Contact is Expecting Our Call
That’s it. The rest is up to us. We will contact the person you referred and discuss the partnership possibilities between our organizations. If we reach a deal, you get the pleasure of knowing you helped grow the sport and the additional joy of a healthy check.
Participants who introduce the MLU to a new partner will receive a reward of 10% of the total cash value of the signed sponsorship deal. Not bad for growing the sport you love.
