Sponsor a Club
Now in its fourth year, and with thousands involved across Sierra Leone, we are inviting you, your team, organisation or friends to get involved by sponsoring a club in our unique children’s football league.
Your support will enable them to go to (and stay in) school, play the game they love in a safe, fair and organised setting, whilst also taking responsibility for improving their communities.
By raising at least £1,000 ($1,500) you can help transform the lives of at least 40 lucky kids.
Where your money goes
Your money will go directly to your chosen club and be split between four vital areas:
- Education Fund – covers annual academic scholarships for the 40 children in your club.
- Community development – covers resources for your club’s community development projects.
- Football Fund – covers your club’s match day costs including water, first aid, transport and referees.
- Youth Employment Fund – contributes to a stipend for two trained local volunteers (coach and assistant coach).
What you get in return
- An introductory pack featuring a profile of your club with photographs and statistics as well as information on the League and its impact to date.
- A personalised welcome and thank you letter from your club’s players and coaches.
- Regular updates on your club’s community projects, school achievements and matches with photos and stats.
- Invitations to exclusive Craig Bellamy Foundation events and entry into regular prize draws with other sponsors to win VIP tickets to top UK and international matches.
