Sponsorship Opportunities


thumbnail of DRFC Brochure

Dorking Rugby Football Club 1st XV have capped a remarkable 10 years of success with promotion to National League 2 South for the first time in the club’s 93-year history.

Promotion now makes Dorking RFC a Level 4 club and among the top 70 clubs in the country – and you too could become part of our amazing story next season.

The club’s achievement is all the more extraordinary for the players, coaches, friends and sponsors because The Red & Whites are charity run and don’t pay their players.

Instead, the club has built from the ground up with a One-Club ethos that feeds a steady stream of home-grown players into the senior sides. In this championship-winning season we have fielded an average of 12 home-grown players in every match day squad of 18.

The club is very well set up to compete in National League 2 – both on and off the field – and expects to attract extra players who wish to play a high level of fast-paced and exciting rugby.

Dorking RFC is also now attracting great interest from businesses keen to support the club’s fantastic achievements.

Those companies now looking to sponsor the club will see a broad range of benefits as the club’s high-profile fixtures gain exposure across the whole of the south of the country from Southend in Essex across to Redruth in Cornwall – and up from Worthing in Sussex to Cambridge.

It is going to be a wonderful rollercoaster ride – and we will need increased levels of support  to meet the challenges and adventures that lie ahead.

In return, your company will be associated with a very successful sporting club that enjoys big match-day crowds at home and away.

Packages are tailor-made for advertisers and sponsors’ specific needs.

Benefits can include pitch-side banners, advertisements in home match programmes, on the club website and in the fixture card. There are opportunities to sponsor club kit,  players, coaches and an array of facilities within the club … as well as the opportunity to use our redeveloped clubhouse with its glorious backdrop of Box Hill for your own meetings, conferences and lunches served by the excellent Balsamic Fig firm of caterers.

The clubhouse is also where we hold pre-match lunches before every home game serving up – we are not afraid to boast – by far and away the best cuisine you will find at any rugby club. Here businesses are welcome to join us with their guests for a very agreeable and entertaining three-course meal before enjoying the match and the unique ambience of the Dorking RFC experience.

We wish to thank our current sponsors who have been by our side over the last few years and to extend the hand of rugby friendship to potential new supporters of the club on both the playing and commercial side.

Please feel free to find out what makes Dorking Rugby Club so special and how you could be part of its very exciting future.
