It's only a full time job if you're good enough to make it one.

And from a riders perspective it's the transition period from being a hobby / sport to a job / business.

They have one of the better club websites. They are also only behind Leicester and Belle Vue in terms of how competitive the local market is for sports sponsorship, so I would imagine its a tough sell.  The key to any sponsorship is that it has to be beneficial to both parties. In the case of clubs this means that unless a Director is a fan they would be better off targeting local SME's and focusing on the services that an aging audiance would be interested in. It is no good going after national brands as the audiance is to small, to poor, to old and in to heavily one gender. And I write this as a speedway fan.

Leicester?

What about Glasgow, Wolves/Birmingham?

And yet another Poole sponsor renews for 2022 - Trethowan Solicitors. Great supporters of the club and the Fords.

Always good to be in a partnership with a strong legal firm - you never know when you might need one!:t:;)

Although it seems that one of the newer companies may have had a change of heart.

The rugby, basketball & netball clubs are weaker in those locations.

Yes, but four football clubs including Celtic and Rangers.

I don't know how much sponsorship those clubs will take in but imagine the Old Firm won't be calling on small traders, so not a competition to Glasgow Tigers.

In the same way, those involved in sponsoring Leicester City or the Leicester Tigers are unlikely to be potential sponsors of Leicester Lions. 
There is competition for sponsorship in all markets but that doesn’t mean that every sport competes for every sponsor

Why do you feel the need to post every time a sponsor renews:shock: if everyone did this for their club the forum would go into meltdown  only Poole fans seem to feel the need to blow their own trumpet. :nono:

You can always put me on 'ignore'!  Although you seem more interested in Poole than your own team Plymouth.

Club fans should blow their own trumpet whenever there is an announcement by their club. As Poole are one of the clubs that don't go with a 'main sponsor' then this forum and others can create extra exposure for those organisations that give their financial support.

Definitely not more interested in Poole, just don't feel the need to announce every single thing that goes on at Plymouth, but we are fine thanks.

sponsors come into it for some exposure, surely giving them all that exposure here is a start

Next PiratecastLive broadcast is scheduled for Thursday 24th March at 7pm - with another special guest from the 2022 squad.

Should be another good show with extra fan interest from a Premiership club!!!!.............:t:
