Jets Sponsorship
Are you interested in becoming a Metro Jets Team sponsor?  Sponsorship is now available for all winter teams as well as a number of Premier League Player Sponsorship packages.
Metro Jets relies on sponsorship to help cover the substantial costs of running the Club, eg: court hire, umpire payments, equipment, development opportunities and participating in the Premier League. Without adequate sponsorship support, the Club is at risk of increasing fees or limiting the participation for our Club players.
We currently have some great opportunities for you to advertise your business, whilst also helping to support our club. To discuss further options, contact our Sponsorship Coordinator Simon Adam.
