Opportunities

APPAREL/GEAR SPONSORSHIPS | $1,500 to $5,000

The Chicago Mudcats Sport & Social Club offers businesses the opportunity to be apparel/gear sponsors. Sponsors have the opportunity to select from season apparel items (varying price-points depending on the gear - see table below) and receive exclusive logo placement on that item. Logos are printed on a minimum of 200 of each of the items which are worn/utilized by our players and their families throughout the season at tournaments, during practices and in everyday life. Our Apparel Sponsors also receive a number of additional benefits/visibility opportunities which are outlined below. Apparel sponsorship opportunities are limited, and thus offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Deadline for Apparel Sponsorship is November 1 each year.

IN-KIND DONATIONS

Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a type of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.

In addition to accepting dollars from our constituents, the Chicago Mudcats welcome in-kind donations in the form of equipment, gear, professional services, etc. All donations are greatly appreciated!
