Team and club sponsorships

We are privileged to have the support of several sponsors. But there is always room for more – either for the club or for any of the teams. Depending on the level of sponsorship, sponsors can get various levels of recognition including team naming rights. We will be delighted to discuss sponsorship options for next season with you, just email us at
