Sponsor a beer

Last updated : 18 January 2009 By Dane Vincent

Good head: There will be plenty of beer and cider on offer at the event.
Notts County Supporters' Trust are searching for people to sponsor the Magpies' Beer Festival, which is set to take place in less than two weeks.

Running from January 29 until February 1, the popular annual event will see hundreds of thirsty visitors cram into Wheeler's Bar to sample a huge range of local ales and ciders.

Large proportions of the cash raised depend on advertising from local businesses, breweries and football fans, among other sources.

There are currently three sponsorship deals available, which can be purchased from just £50.

Package 1

Main Event sponsorship is available at £500. Sponsors will enjoy 25 free tickets, main branding in the programme and all media communications as part of their reward package.

Package 2

A main programme sponsorship is available at £150. Sponsors will also enjoy 5 free admission tickets as part of their reward package

Package 3

Each beer can be sponsored at £50 each. Sponsors will have their chosen name proudly displayed over their choice of beer, together with an insert in the programme and some free vouchers to sample their brew.

All profits made by the MBF will go straight into the club's coffers, meaning that there is a great incentive for County fans in particular to take part in some form.

Publicity Officer for the Supporters' Trust, Margaret Cobb enthused: "Many sponsors have enjoyed bringing friends, colleagues and clients to the event to sample their brew, plus others.

"Following the success of the two previous events, this year's promises to be even better.

"It will last four days to allow the rugby fans the chance to visit on the Sunday and it is fully endorsed by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale).

"There will be a greater range of food available following the refurbishments to Wheeler's and it will be a great way to celebrate the newly renamed Meadow Club."

Anybody who wishes to find out more about the event or taking up one of the packages, do not hesitate to email Margaret at: margaret.cobb@yahoo.com.
