ESS SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION:
Why Sponsor the Long Island Roller Rebels and the Empire Skate Showdown?

Fundamentally, we are a grassroots athletic league that has come very far with very little and are ready to raise our sport's profile. Since 2005, our league has built a following, both locally and regionally, that brings an average of 1000 fans to each of our bouts. Every year, we find that number growing, keeping pace with the growth of roller derby (the world's fastest growing sport for women) across the country and internationally. Our demographic is broad and the exposure is priceless. Older, nostalgic roller derby lovers sit shoulder-to-shoulder with excited new fans and cheering children at Old Bethpage, NY's Skate Safe America, LIRR's official game venue, who also sponsor us. On average our website has over 5,000 hits from unique visitors each month, and that doesn't include the social networking sites we are on as well, such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter, which each have several thousand followers.

The Empire Skate Showdown is bringing together 10 competitive teams, all from New York State, plus their fans and derby supporters, together under one roof for a full day of roller derby action. We expect to attract more than 2000 spectators throughout the daylong event, as well as over 200 skaters and support staff in attendance.

In addition, this year, we have been presented with the opportunity to broadcast The Empire Skate Showdown on ABC's Live Well Network, one of their digital channels that reaches 8.3 million homes in the Tri-State area! The tournament will be shot in full High Definition with multiple cameras, edited into 8, 1-hour long episodes and aired a few months later on Saturdays from 12-1PM. This is the biggest chance for our sport and our sponsors to reach massive amounts of people since both our league's formation and the sport's most recent resurgence in 2001.

Where does the money go?

Putting on a tournament of this size requires the support and dedication of dozens of individuals, skaters and non-skaters alike, who volunteer their time and energy to plan and execute a successful event. However, there are significant costs to run a tournament such as venue rental costs, food, advertising and promotion, liability and extreme sports insurance fees, merchandising items and security just to name a few. Your generous sponsorship contribution will help to offset some of these expenses, and in turn you receive invaluable exposure as our sponsor. The money will also help pay for ABC's airtime and production costs while we expose your brand/business on air. It is a win/win situation!

So what do you get out of it?

There are many different options for sponsors of the LIRR and the Empire Skate Showdown. We have tiers of sponsorship dependent on the size of the donation, but nothing with us is set in stone. We have so many different ways to promote your business and we want to find the one that's most beneficial to you. However, for rinkside banners featuring your business's logo and guaranteed on-air mentions on ABC's Live Well Network, we are starting at a very reasonable $500 per banner, with opportunities to buy commercial space and sponsor everything from the penalty boxes to instant replays, the scoreboard, etc.

We cannot bring this exciting, fast-paced sport to Long Island without your generous sponsorship donation. Contact our Sponsorship Coordinator, who will be glad to customize a package just for you!
