In the build up to 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons, AFC Unity’s search for sponsors was simplified: it was decided that instead of seeking a single sponsor who would have to meet the target we had set, we would instead open up the opportunity to be chosen as a key sponsor via a raffle: local businesses began buying tickets at £25 each in order to contribute to AFC Unity, in addition to being in with a chance of being drawn as a major sponsor in the draw on July 4th, 2018!
Listed below are the parties who entered the sponsorship raffle draw and as a result automatically became a sponsor of AFC Unity between 2018 and 2020. We would like to thank them for their support and ask you to go and support them in return!
