Our social media platforms have a combined reach of almost 3,000 followers, mostly from the Ballynahinch area. Our website also receives around 300 views per week which features our match reports. These also appear in the Down Recorder (average weekly readership 68,000) and occasionally in the Mourne Observer (average weekly readership 25,000).
Sponsor our Player of the Match award to promote your company and align it with the best performance’s during our matches.
Player of the Match awards will be chosen by a random spectator picked out by our management team.
You will get…
- Announcement of the winner with your company’s branding across all Ballynahinch United’s social media accounts. Your social media will be tagged if possible.
- Your company name and the POTM will be featured in our match reports online and, when possible, in the local papers.
- Press release on our website and, if possible, the local papers announcing the sponsorship agreement.
Ideally, we would like this commitment to be for every game of the season rather than a one-off sponsorship. This would entail at least 14 home and 14 away league games, plus any cup games (for the First team), but we are open to discussing options to meet your needs, e.g. home games only.
We offer a simple opportunity to promote yourself through our two advertising signage options.
Roadside Signage* is a great way to display a clear message about your business. This signage is viewable to over 15,000 daily travellers along the Drumaness Road (A24).
Pitchside Signage* is a fantastic way to get your business close to the action as well as in front of local audiences, including local papers like Down Recorder, Mourne Observer and the Daily Mirror’s Match on Tuesday pullout, or online.
* Sizes may vary.
Get your business name or brand logo on an item of our kit, tracksuit or accessories.

All our sponsorship and advertising packages include Web and Social Media coverage.
Where possible, any partnership will also include an announcement in local newspapers.
You can also get involved by volunteering. We always need volunteers to help out with multiple tasks from cleaning, maintenance, customer service, ground maintenance and football related, of course.
