Tournament Sponsorships


Will Ellison, Brian Beebe, Tom Stack

Companies can sponsor a tournament, the entire NOHIO.GOLF Tournament Series, or act as sponsor for any golf association or series covered by Northern Ohio Golf!

Sponsorships are available for individual tournaments or a season-long series, with varying levels of recognition and presentation. Tournament and Series Sponsorships reach many more golfers than just the players competing in any particular event. These sponsor branding elements will be seen by hundreds of thousands of readers, multiple times over, and for years to come. And these readers are always just a click away from learning more details about your company or products!

TOURNAMENT SPONSORSHIPS

Title Sponsorships:

Have your company name built in to the name of one event! (Think ‘Honda’ in the PGA Tour’s “Honda Classic”.)

A Title Sponsor receives name + large logo references (all clickable!) in multiple locations in the content for one (1) event: on the Tournament Calendar event details page; on the Call-for-Entries story; on the Starting Times post; and on the final Tournament Results Game Story and Photo Gallery which stays embedded with those results forever.

But the biggest bonus: since the company name is embedded into the event title, that name will be listed in every story headline across the website and be a part of the Calendar event listing where ever it is shown. Plus, the company name will be heavily promoted across all social media channels and in the email newsletter multiple times, since the company name is always included in every reference to that event.

For the entire season, the Title Sponsor also receives one (1) 300px wide graphic ad displayed on the Category Page and on every Story Page for that event Series. Example: NOHIO.GOLF Series Page

Within a few days after finalizing of a sponsorship agreement, an announcement story will be written and posted featuring the company name, logo and a brief business overview.

At the golf course on event day, the Title Sponsor branding will be prominently presented at Player Registration before the event begins, and at the Tournament Scoreboard where everyone gathers after play is completed. If the Title Sponsor wishes to create an on-site display or promotion for the competitors and spectators at the course, that is welcomed!

Finally, to determine sponsorship ROI at year-end, page view and click-tracking analytics reports will be made available.

SEASON-LONG SERIES SPONSORSHIPS:

Promote your company or products all season long across many, many events! (Think ‘FedEx’ for the entire PGA TOUR season, the FedEx Cup Playoffs and the many Points List updates.)

Brand all of the events of one (1) series under the format ‘Sponsor Name Tournament Series’ for the entire golf season. Includes prominent, built-in name + logo recognition (always clickable!) for that event series across all related site pages, both for the series and for each event of that series.

That means the company name and logo is built in to every ad about that series, into the top of the Category Page, into Player of the Year points updates, etc.

Plus, that same branding is also built in to every single event’s Tournament Calendar listing page, every Call-for-Entries story, every Starting Times post, and every Tournament Results Game Story and Photo Gallery!

This Series Sponsor branding brings prime positioning to a single company across hundreds of highly-trafficked content pages throughout the course of a season — and beyond.

Series Sponsor branding works in conjunction with the branding for the Title Sponsor of each event. One does not overshadow the other; both are presented fairly together.

Within a few days after finalizing a Series Sponsorship agreement, an announcement story will be written and posted in the Featured Story position to the appropriate website(s), detailing the company name, logo and a brief business overview.

At each golf course on event days, the Series Sponsor branding will be prominently presented at Player Registration before the event begins, and at the Tournament Scoreboard where everyone gathers after play is completed. If the Series Sponsor wishes to create a display or promotion for the competitors and spectators on-site at those locations, that is welcomed!

Finally, to determine sponsorship ROI at year-end, page view and click-tracking analytics reports will be made available.
