High Wycombe-based company Ignite made a visit to Adams Park on Thursday after becoming the first business to enter the club’s exclusive raffle to win sponsorship of the shirt sleeve for all FA Cup matches this season.
The raffle was launched last month, giving companies the opportunity to gain local, national and potentially international exposure if selected at random to win the right to have their logo displayed on the sleeve of the Chairboys’ shirts for every round of this season’s FA Cup competition.
Ignite, a sales and marketing agency in the consumer technology sector, were quick to take advantage, purchasing their £1,000 entry which also comes with a VIP hospitality package on a home matchday and a player’s signed shirt.
Ramon Santos, Managing Director of Ignite, said: “We’ve been excited by the club’s progress over the past few years and once this opportunity came up to get involved and potentially win a fantastic sponsorship opportunity, we didn’t hesitate to get involved and show our support.”
“It’s a great initiative and of course we hope we’ll be the lucky ones drawn out of the hat to have our company brand displayed on the club’s shirts during their FA Cup adventure, which – as everyone knows – could lead to fixtures of the highest possible prestige against the country’s biggest clubs.”
Stacey Santos, Marketing Director of Ignite said: “They are a fantastic football club with a great Wycombe local bond and heritage, including my own family. My granddad, Tommy Andrews, was a long-time servant of The Chairboys, playing for WWFC from 1934 to 1949, making our support that more special.”
Wanderers’ general manager Michael Davies said: “The purpose of the raffle for us was to give existing and potential new sponsors the chance to engage with us at an affordable level and hopefully act as the first step on the ladder of developing a longer-term partnership with the club.
“We were thrilled to hear from Ramon and the team at Ignite, and thank them for becoming the first company to purchase their raffle ticket. A number of other businesses have followed suit but there’s still time to buy the final few remaining entries before we make the big draw on September 29th.”
The raffle is available to up to 18 businesses at a price of £1,000 + VAT per entry, with the first prize winning the position of the FA Cup shirt sleeve sponsor, plus match sponsorship of the first FA Cup match to be played at home (or an alternative league match), the choice of any match-worn shirt presented to you by that player, and the use of an executive box to every FA Cup match at Adams Park this season.
All entrants will receive a VIP experience for 10 people in hospitality in a chosen selected league match, pre-match tour of the stadium, and a player’s FA Cup shirt via a secondary prize draw. In addition, everybody who buys a raffle ticket will be provided with two invites for hospitality for Saturday 29th September at the home league match against Southend United where the big draw will happen.
