2022 VC Team Sponsorships
The 2022 season is here! Here's a quick reference of the team-related sponsorship benefits available as part of the VC-Premier Ultimate League relationship.
PUL Team Sponsorships
VC is your team's exclusive uniforms and merchandise sponsor.
Here's a summary of what this means:
1) Exclusive rights on replica jerseys or official team uniforms/apparel aspects.Teams can create/offer their own gear [from non-competing (i.e. non-ultimate) brands or suppliers] as long as it's not part of the official team uniform.
2) Complimentary design services for team uniforms and merchandise.
VC's team of creative and technical designers are here to help! Please note that we require an "art review" for any supplied art to ensure it meets technical production standards, so keep us in the loop if your own designers are working on concepts.
3) Online store merchandise produced by VC at no initial cost/risk to teams.15% commission paid to teams on branded merchandise + merch/cash credit opportunities for marketing efforts.
4) Opportunity to exchange sponsorship/marketing efforts for credit, allowing all teams to receive their uniforms (and more!) completely free.
This PUL Backstage area will be updated throughout the year. Set yourself a reminder to check back on a monthly basis to see what new opportunities are being offered.
Most importantly - if your team has ideas about how to add value to your VC partnership, we want to hear about them! Please reach out and share so we can work together to further increase our support in ways that are mutually beneficial.
Team Discount for VC Purchases
VC is offering all teams a 35% discount* on any team uniform or apparel order; you can use existing and future credits on discounted orders.
Very important details for successful VC ordering:
1) Plan ahead. Design work takes time (often 2-3 weeks) so make sure to account for that in your order timeline.
This is such an important point for the success of your team's uniforms, merchandise and the Player Sponsorship Program. If all teams wait until the last minute to submit design requests, we will not be able to handle the volume at the same quality level given that the firm deadlines will take priority.
2) All communicated timelines are firm and set to allow the VC team to service all other community partners and customers with the same committed standards.
Rush orders are often possible but charges will apply as we incur increased costs from every aspect of the production cycle when scheduling priority orders on faster timelines.
3) Strict 5 unit/style minimum order. Smaller orders must be placed through the VC online store using team discount code.
4) Invoices must be paid before orders ship.
Each team will be invoiced and expected to pay for their uniforms a minimum of two weeks before our planned shipping date.
VC is providing ample opportunity for teams to earn the credit to cover the cost of their uniform invoice - and beyond.
Credit will be applied to the team's accounts/invoices immediately upon completion of promotional opportunities.
Earn Your Team Unlimited Credit!
VC will continue to offer a version of the PUL referral program, which raised several teams thousands of dollars in 2021. We cannot express enough how important this is to us as a part of our partnership; it's great to see so many Club teams featuring PUL players competing in VC!
Be sure to read the post 2022 Credit Opportunities to learn more, and don't forget to tag @vcultimate on all social media posts. Not only do we appreciate it, but it helps you too - we'll amplify to our following!
As always, we're here to help! Contact Jess at any time with questions, concerns and ideas.
Looking forward to the 2022 season with you all,
Jess, Adriana & the VC Team
*VC’s standard maximum discount on Simple Sub products is 15%. Due to the volume and capacity of producing all PUL team uniforms at once, we may choose to produce the actual white uniforms as Simple Sub vs Spot Sub. Replicas will be spot sublimated to allow for made-to-order fulfillment.
