Lincoln City Offer Fans Chance to Rename Stadium
Thu 17th May 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities
Lincoln City will offer fans the chance to rename the club’s Sincil Bank Stadium in a unique competition aimed at raising finaces to boost the club’s playing squad.
The club’s Board of Directors have announced details of a special prize draw, with a package worth over £50,000 including the naming rights of Sincil Bank Stadium going to the lucky winner.
For an entry fee of just £50, companies and individuals will have the chance to win the following package for the 2012/13 season with all monies raised from the draw going directly into Manager David Holdsworth’s playing budget:
● Stadium Naming Rights (all internal and external media)
● Stadium Name on LCFC letterheads, invoices, compliment slips, etc
● Designated external stadium signage sites
● Designated internal stadium signage sites
● Logo/Name on the cover of all match day programmes
● Full page acknowledgment in all match day programmes
● Two seasonal memberships in the T&R Executive Lounge or an alternative stand of your choice
● Executive Box & in suite catering for 10 guests at four home league games
● Boardroom Hospitality for two at the first and last home games of the 2012/13 season
● Away Boardroom hospitality for two including return travel on the Team Coach for two games (fixtures tbc)
“If Lincoln City want to be a competitive outfit in the Blue Square Bet Premier next season, we need to support David Holdsworth in putting together the strongest possible squad,” said CEO Steve Prescott.
“We have therefore been exploring several innovative ways of raising significant additional funds to boost the manager’s budget. The first of these is Name Our Stadium, which is an extremely exciting initiative, which I believe will really capture the public’s imagination.
“Inspired by similar projects at other clubs, and with tickets only being £50, Name Our Stadium will appeal to local, national and international businesses alike.
“However, individual fans are also encouraged to take part, as they too can name the stadium for a season, which could be a very special way of commemorating a loved one or enjoying the season of a lifetime and creating some unforgettable memories along the way.
“With multiple entries allowed I am confident there is a real prospect of achieving in excess of 1,000 sales, and so boosting the manager’s budget by more than £50,000.
“With a special draw taking place at the Club’s Community Day on the weekend of 28/29 July the winner will be absolutely thrilled with the high-profile £50,000 package of benefits that is coming their way for the whole of the 2012/13 season.
“I do understand that not all fans like their stadium names being affected as a result of sponsorship so if there are any Imps fans that want to keep the Sincil Bank Stadium name as it is, they can buy a Name Our Stadium ticket and should they win they can leave the stadium name unchanged and enjoy the rest of the winners benefits!”
Manager David Holdsworth added: “This is a wonderful initiative that brings our supporters closer to the Club and is an opportunity for someone to have their name literally in lights.
“I’m sure all fans will be intrigued to see the outcome and as always I am hugely grateful for the support in income towards our squad. Good luck to everyone who enters!”
