The Great Game has a range of sponsorship packages on offer for any company or individual who wishes to support the week-end, associate their brand with The Great Game: Waterloo Replayed, or help the Waterloo Uncovered charity and their work. It might be a regimental association of a regiment represented at Waterloo; it might be an individual who has a friend playing in the battle or it might be a corporate with a brand to promote.
The Great Game will attract considerable media attention and will be an attractive vehicle for any company that wants to associate itself with this innovative attempt on a gaming world record, military history, archaeology and support for serving service personnel and veterans, as epitomised by the values of Waterloo Uncovered.
Firstly, there will be a JustGiving page which we hope will allow individuals to sponsor their friends and relatives playing in the game. Those who support the aims of Waterloo Uncovered, and Regimental Associations who are proud of their Waterloo associations.
Secondly, we are looking for a Naming Lead Sponsor (£10k), who will lend their name to the game, and for whom we will build a bespoke sponsorship package around.
This will include:
* Exclusive press release announcing sponsorship of the game
* Sponsor’s name and logo prominently displayed
* Extensive publicity via traditional and social media platforms
* A guided tour of the game as it unfolds for up to 10 people
* Opportunity to meet participants, and experts in both archaeology and military history
* VIP package for social event on Saturday evening at the University of Glasgow
* Tickets for the year-end Waterloo Uncovered event in London
Thirdly, we are looking for Supporting Sponsors who will enjoy an association with The Great Game. This includes sponsorship in kind from those in the military history, wargaming and modelling fields.
This will entail:
* Name to appear on all press and media statements, event literature, database blasts, promotional activity and to be displayed at The Great Game.
* Publicity via traditional and social media platforms pre and post event.
* Free admittance to the event for four people.
* Promotion of any goods or items used in The Great Game.
