Sponsorship Opportunities

MABL are looking to offer local companies the opportunity to sponsor our league.

Benefits of Sponsorship

Basketball is one of the few sports in the UK where participation levels are increasing year in year out. Last year the number of people playing basketball rose by 21,800 to 152,900 each week (source Basketball England).

In Manchester and the North West in particular the sport is extremely popular, with several professional and semi-professional teams in the area and with the development of the new Basketball Performance Centre at Belle Vue all having a positive effect on the sport within the region.

By sponsoring MABL potential sponsors will become involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and gaining access to the potential that the popularity of the sport can provide.
