Our Club was established in 1935 so it has a long history in the local area. We are still going strong today with great success including the Men’s and Women’s State League premiership in 2013, unprecedented in Victoria Lacrosse for ONE club to win BOTH the Men’s and Women’s titles. And to top that season off we had Junior Boy’s and Girl’s teams also taking out premiership titles. Our on field success has continued since then with numerous junior premiership titles and our senior men’s and women’s teams coming agonizingly close by making the premiership game but falling short in 2014, 2015 and 2016.We have capitalized on these recent on field successes and confidently grown our membership from 248 registered players to over 300 in the current 2017 season. Our email database is over 500 past and present players that are actively involved in our local community.
With continued hard work and success as a club, the Maribyrnong Council recognized our long history and important contribution as a sporting club in the local area by committing major funding to improve the ground and refurbish our existing clubrooms. In late 2016 the works completed and our facilities are now state of the art with improved clubroom facilities, men’s and women’s change rooms, new bar and canteen areas and improved drainage to our playing fields. The Members are very grateful for and excited about our new clubrooms and look forward to moving into them in March of this year. We are looking forward to being able to present our club at future home games, proudly.
Whilst the infrastructure will be more than adequate for our future growth, we still require the assistance of our local business leaders to insure we grow our game and promote our sport to the youth of our community.
Your support as a sponsor is crucial, and we feel that together we can write a new chapter in the clubs history.
By becoming a sponsor of Footscray Lacrosse Club, you would be enabling us to; purchase equipment, run recruitment programs via the local primary and secondary schools, the general every day running for not only our current members but for future members and the community. You will also be supporting our Members who are selected to represent Victoria and Australia. We currently have 6 senior women representing Australia in the 2017 Women’s World Cup in Manchester, England.
Alongside a number of home and away matches, we regularly host state association finals series and annual International events where teams from America and Japan are represented. The local, national and international exposure that these events provide, would enable your company to reach national and international audience which also includes the broader metropolitan Melbourne.
With our newly launched website, large contact database, and by being active in electronic media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) we are able to reach a wider audience who receive our weekly newsletters, utilise our website for club information, game information, upcoming event details, player statistics and are actively engaged on all of our social media platforms.
There are four levels of sponsorship offered which are detailed below. All levels offer each sponsor the ability to showcase their service as well as reap the rewards of being involved in a community based program. We like to involve our sponsors in our club and not only get to know the brand but also the faces behind it.
