In the spring of 2024, Reading United A.C. will be 27 years old!! Our teams and players have achieved tremendous success on the field of play. RUAC hosts multiple teams: a USL League Two team (4th level of men’s soccer in USA), a reserve team that plays multiple friendly matches, a WPSL team (women's premiere league), and even an over 40-age men's team participating in the Eastern PA Amateur Soccer League.
Since 2008 we have nearly 100 former Reading United players, playing professional soccer worldwide. Forty-two (42) of our alumni have received callups to their national team. We currently have 15 alumni playing with one of the 28 MLS teams. We are able to bring the highest level of players into Reading for the summer solely due to the support of fantastic partners like you. We are proud that Reading businesses are helping us to provide cost effective, family friendly, soccer to the greater Reading area.
We did not have jersey sponsors in 2024. However, you can see our partners in 2023. RUAC has a loyal fan base, both in-person and online. For the 2023 season, attendance averaged 400 plus fans for each home game, and there were 12 of them - 7 men's games and 5 women's game. Each home game is also streamed online. There were 100 continuous streams per home game. Our home games were played at Alvernia’s Turf Field. Fans were treated by our beer garden partner, Willow Creek Brewing of West Reading. Team uniforms, coaching gear, and staff apparel were provided by Capelli Sports. Whether in-person or online, our sponsors were visible for all to see with company banners strategically placed around Alvernia’s Turf Field.
We are looking to build relationships with select sponsors for the 2024 season and we hope you will consider promoting your business through RUAC sponsorship opportunities.
We are seeking a 2024 title sponsor. This title sponsor will see their company name on all 4 of our team's uniforms, training gear, website, social media, live broadcasts, and more. We will tailor this sponsorship (number of tickets, special events at matches, etc.) to meet your company and employee needs.
There are also other 2024 kit sponsors opportunities. We offer back of the shirt above and below the number, the sleeves, and the shorts for your company's logo placement. Your company will also be seen on all of our 4 team's uniforms. These kits sponsors will also see their company logo's on website, social media, live broadcasts, and more. We will tailor this sponsorship (number of tickets, special events at matches, etc.) to meet your company and employee needs.
For 2024, we are also offering twelve (12) gameday sponsors. Ten of our regular season home games will be $5000 each with two home games (women’s team inaugural season opener on May 19 and Cancer Awareness Night on June 10) will be $7,500 each. These gameday sponsors (in addition to season long game signage, program ad, in-game reads, etc.) will include your company logo on our team gameday warmup jerseys (with jerseys provided to you or donated to charity of your choice), handouts at game, marketing tent/table in stadium concourse, and 100 tickets for your use for your employees, customers, family, or friends.
$5,000 Ball Runner Sponsor: At each of our 12 home games, we have ball runners. Ball runners wear a RUAC t-shirt with your company logo placed prominently on the back of the t-shirt. There are up to 6 ball runners around the field. These ball runners are typically volunteer youth players who get to keep the t-shirt!
$7,500 Referee Sponsor: This package is tailor-made for an eye care company. Beside signage on the field, this package will predominately be featured over the loudspeaker. For example, imagine that at the start of the game, we announce: “Tonight’s referees are John, Paul, George and Ringo, sponsored by the Acme Ophthalmology Group!” and when a referee calls a foul: “This referee call was made with the help of Acme Ophthalmology!"
