Here at AFC Bournemouth, we strive to give you the best possible return on your objectives through bespoke sponsorship packages with a range of inventory to suit your requirements.
Our club has a number of unique features which make partnership with us the most beneficial option for your business.
For those looking to increase brand awareness, the highly competitive Sky Bet Championship, the fourth most watched league in the world, has a global audience of 960 million people each season demonstrating a great opportunity to showcase your brand to potential customers.
As well as the league audience, our own supporters are highly engaged and hugely brand loyal; the benefits of which are often enjoyed by our club partners due to their association with the Cherries.
If you’re looking to be more specific in your targeting, we have a wealth of customer data which enables us to create campaigns and activations that speak directly to supporters who are likely to be interested in your business.
Our Community Sports Trust are the club’s registered charity who reach over 4,000 children and their families each week with a wide range of community engagement and outreach initiatives. The Trust is built upon four main themes – participation, health, education, and inclusion. Businesses that partner with our Community Sports Trust often do so to increase their corporate social responsibility portfolio as well as experiencing a boost in staff morale.
We recognise that one of the best ways to generate a return on objectives is through digital marketing and activations.

Combining this with more traditional partner content will give you a comprehensive promotional package throughout the season.
