Coventry Bears Sponsorship Opportunities

Coventry Bears have been in existence for over 20 years and the club has substantial roots in the city of Coventry and a high profile within the sport of rugby league. In 2015 the Bears moved into the professional Betfred League One, from being an amateur club since 1998.

Regional and national media attention increased rapidly which added to the already strong presence the Bears had in the media and the local community of Coventry & Warwickshire.

There has never been a better time to sponsor the club and take advantage of some fantastic exposure for your business.

We are looking for businesses with a strong presence in the Midlands to take advantage of our range of flexible sponsorship options.
