Staten Island Vipers
Dear Business Owner:
Let me take this opportunity to introduce you to the Staten Island Vipers. The Staten Island Vipers Franchise is an affiliate of the American Basketball Association. The American Basketball Association often abbreviated as ABA was a professional basketball league founded in 1967 which originally merged with the NBA in 1976 and was revamped in 1999 as a semi-professional men's basketball league. The Staten Island Vipers were established in 2011 and this is the beginning of our third season. We provide family fun and entertainment at affordable prices. As we look forward to building our brand within the Staten Island community, we are offering local businesses like yours, an opportunity to become a Team Sponsor.
Our mission is to provide the community with a positive sense of leadership, positive role models and to enable our players to fulfill their hoop dreams. Our program will exhibit true leadership and character at all times. We have assembled a great group of guys and an outstanding coaching staff. Our diversity allows us to target every demographic in a professional and unique manner. Our players consist of former high school standouts, Division 1 college players and overseas professionals, many of whom were born and raised on Staten Island.
Our ownership and management team has extensive basketball knowledge and experience and our strength lies in our business focus and attention to detail. No stone will be left unturned in our pursuit of creating a winning franchise. While continuing to utilize our national and international networking capabilities, we believe that we have and will continue to make the necessary connections and strategic partnerships vital to solidifying us as a successful organization poised for explosive growth.
Your sponsorship will enable our organization to fully train and compete at a pro level and support the growth of competitive professionals in our community. Our primary revenue source is registration fees paid by prospective players and ticket sales from our games. Since these funds do not cover all of the operating expenses, we must obtain funds to pay for equipment, training fees, gym rentals, travel and league fees. The benefits of sponsoring the Vipers include signage at games and other events, promotional opportunities before and after games, the ability to reach any target market and the opportunity to entertain clients and prospective customers by inviting them as VIPs to games and sponsored events.

Any sponsorship level you select will be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact us at (347) 524-8554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
