Thank you for your interest in building a partnership with the Lancashire Spinners for the 2017-18 season.
The Spinners are looking forward to their third consecutive season in Basketball England’s National League Division One and the club has taken strides forward yearly because of the commitment from coaching staff and players alike.
Our core beliefs include a responsibility to community and fans, as well as to promote and give opportunities to young and British basketball players to compete at the highlest level of their sport possible.
We believe with your support that our partnership will not only flourish, and continue to build on that success, but also impact the Greater Manchester and Lancashire communities from the senior level down to the grassroots.
The Lancashire Spinners are looking for sponsors to feature prominently on the team’s home and away jerseys for the 2017-18 season.

Thousands of more hits and views are achievable across our social media coverage and in regional newspapers. The Spinners have been featured in the Bury Times, as well as the Manchester Evening News’ online site.

Team Northumbria, the defending regular season champions, will also pay visit whilst the Spinners continue their rivalry with London Lituanica.
The main jersey sponsor will also feature on the players’ warm up tops, promotional materials, Born & Red club magazine and merchandise.

The Lancashire Spinners introduced the GameDay sponsor ahead of the 2015-16 season to give a company the opportunity to be front and centre as we promote content across our social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
The organisation has researched effective ways to continue growing our audience by finding engaging ways to elevate presentation and professionalism. The sponsor will present all GameDay associated content such as previews, recaps, starting line-up, final result graphic, Player of the Game, game infographics and highlight packages.
Our graphics — made in-house and updated ahead of the upcoming season — enhance stories published on Facebook, which garner a reach of 1,500-plus per article alongside over 1,000 impressions per tweet on Twitter. At the tail end of 2016-17, the Spinners broadcast home games via Facebook Live to great success and the signature game in March against Essex drew 1,800 views and a further reach of 11,895.
The GameDay sponsor will also feature prominently on promotional materials for the 2017-18 season, including schedule cards, posters and courtside boards.

This collaboration will give your business exposure throughout the home schedule, as well as in the background of post-game interviews with the Lancashire coaching staff and players.

There are eight full-page opportunities for the 2017-18 season to promote your business alongside the Lancashire Spinners.
