Sponsorship, Advertising & Networking in 2021
Speedway is a fantastic, adrenaline fuelled, team sport watched by a local; national and international audience covering a range of demographic profiles.
Brand engagement with The Eastbourne Eagles provides local, regional and national broadcast exposure. We feature weekly across local publications including The Argus, The Eastbourne Herald & the Sussex Express, with regular features on ITV Meridian and BBC Sussex radio and fantastic coverage on our own channel Eagles TV.
We provide comprehensive social media coverage each week, whilst our website received in excess of 500,000 page views during the 2020 season.
After a successful 2019 Championship season, like the vast majority of Sports we have been severely impacted in 2020 by the Covid 19 pandemic, eventually losing our complete Home season of Fixtures.
We are delighted though to announce that we have agreed with all 2020 Sponsors and Advertisers that we will honour our commitment to them for 2021 and carry them forward to the 2021 season, which we hope can start on time in March 2021. We have a Covid 19 compliant and authorised Stadium and would like to show our thanks for our 2020 Sponsors and Advertisers for their loyalty to us, by being loyal to them in 2021.
We are acutely aware of the impact of Covid 19 on ALL Businesses, however large or small and our 2021 Sponsorship/Advertising and new Networking Packages for 2021 will reflect this fully.
If you want to advertise and showcase your Business in 2021 both locally in and around Eastbourne and Hailsham, further afield in East and West Sussex, Kent and Hampshire, Nationally or Globally, please read on and feel free to Contact Us if you want to discuss any form of bespoke package.
We will have a number of FREE packages exclusively designed to support and assist Local Business and to introduce them to our rapidly expanding Supporter and Networking base.
