2016 Player Sponsorship

Mazenod Old Collegians Football Club (MOCFC) is reigniting a rewarding initiative to our players and supporters via the Player Sponsorship Program. The aim is to provide supporters / businesses with exposure to an extensive audience and at the same time subsidise the costs of football for young men many of who are studying and/or unemployed. The main cost of playing football arises from subscription fees which are collected by the club to offset the expenses of league affiliation, equipment, insurance, medical, umpires and coaching. We realise subscription costs are an impost for young men and their families therefore in the interests of keeping players in the game to enjoy all the benefits the game brings, we believe this opportunity offers significant community benefits.
Benefit to the player sponsor

  • Membership of MOCFC and the ability to vote at meetings
  • Free entrance to one standard luncheon held in the clubrooms during the year
  • Details added to a business directory on the MOCFC web site
  • Recognition in clubrooms and website
  • Linkage to a player within the club
  • Tax deductible expense for businesses
Benefits to the player
  • Coverage of all playing subscriptions.
  • Keeping the costs of playing as low as possible
  • Encouragement to remain in the game for as long as possible
  • Connection with a club supporter.
