Sponsorship packages available for 2018/2019

Sponsorship packages are now available for the upcomimg season. These are always very popular (especially age group sponsorship), so register your interest early.


If you or your company are considering a sporting sponsorship which benefits the whole community, especially young people, it would be difficult to find a better opportunity locally than to work with the KicKStart Youth Football League.


We have developed a range of sponsorship opportunities at all levels of affordability for individuals, organisations and businesses which allow them to get involved with the football league and to feel a part of what is going on.

Prices start from as little as £50...

All of our sponsorship packages develop the theme that KicKStart Youth Football League is an FA Charter Standard League. We are committed to integrating our sporting activities with local individuals, organisations and businesses, making it our business to ensure that they enjoy the experience and that the sponsorship package they choose achieves its aims.
