Why sponsor roller derby in Syracuse, NY?
ACRD is a grassroots, all volunteer, women’s sports organization with a focus on community and the empowerment of women. By supporting ACRD, you support the women who do it for themselves.
Sponsorship aligns your business or product with a highly visible fast-growing and entertaining sport. Promotion is the major benefit your organization will receive, in addition to patronage by the derby skaters, along with their friends, families, colleagues, and social networks. ACRD supports those who support us. Fans who attend our bouts range from sports fanatics to those who do not consider themselves sports fans at all. Imagine reaching punk rockers, soccer moms, and hardcore sports fans all at once. Once first-timers get a taste of the action, they cannot wait for our next bout.
We support the community in which we live by partnering with non-profit groups and participating in community-building activities. A portion of event proceeds goes directly to these organizations. Past partners include the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc., Golisano’s Children Hospital, and Aids Community Resources.
We offer sponsorship levels and packages, which are flexible and can be customized to fit your needs. While we have created a variety of packages, we recognize there is no “one size fits all” approach. If you feel some other form of promotion or sponsorship would be more beneficial to you, please ask us about it! We are willing to work with you.
