Sponsorship & Advertising


Running and maintaining a successful sports team at the highest level of UK competition, is a very expensive process for an amateur club.

 The 1st XI’s current principal sponsor is Sidlow, who also have the shirt sponsorship rights for the 2005/06 season. The team is also indebted to the sponsorship it receives from The Hire Centre. This year we are pleased to have secured a third major sponsor Yazoo.

East Grinstead has previously enjoyed significant sponsorship from both local and national companies. We are delighted the majority of these businesses, including Sidlow, chose to extend their involvement beyond the initial contractual periods, and we thank them for their funding, personal support and friendship.

The club recognises that sponsorship is a two-way involvement and works hard to maximise all possible exposure for a company as a direct result of its financial support.
