There has never been a better time to get behind Bolton County FC than now – and we are looking for companies big and not-so big to get themselves associated with our great club so that we can all thrive and prosper together. And why would you want to do that we hear you asking yourselves? Well – let us explain exactly that…

Bolton County FC are a well-established local football club who in fact celebrate our 75th anniversary next summer – and with various squads differing in age from our Academies for boys and girls under 7 all the way through to a superb Men’s team who finished runners-up in the Premier Division of the Manchester Football League and an excellent Open Age Women’s team who play in the Lancashire FA Women’s Championship. In between those we have a plethora of squads for boys, girls, mixed and all ages with over 175+ players representing us all over the North-West every weekend. The coverage is far and wide and if you became associated with us, you too could see your company logo in the papers and all over our social media platforms. Sound interesting so far? Oh – we have more…

Being run entirely by volunteers who devote hours and hours to keep this great Club as successful as it is, we are always on the look-out for the support of local businesses as it is invaluable to our cause. We can maintain the fantastic opportunities we provide to the children and young people of Bolton. By sponsoring us in any way, you and your business will gain an enormous amount of exposure both in the local community and further afield – our Women’s squad travel as far as Penrith and Workington! – and with our ever-growing community within our social media platforms and our great website, we will ensure that your company is promoted and ‘out there’ for all to see. Not only that but we also have our very own facilities – namely The County Ground – and the sponsorship opportunities here are tremendous. With some home games atracting over 100 supporters, there are always cameras and newspapers about the place so with that in mind, read on a little bit more…

The packages below are just a guide as to the various things we are looking for:
