Well mate, in the present climate, get what they are prepared to pay. Somethings better than nothing . Depending on what size board, we charge up to £250 per year. But not sure if they are all paying currently!
They have to supply the board .

I know no boundaries.

£250.00 as a one-off payment if we organise the supply of the board. (they supply the artwork) and £250.00 per board per year to display is what we charge.

I think in the present climate, £250 is a starting point for negotiation!

Smack my pitch up

Amazing the difference between football and cricket eh

My cricket ground I probably couldn't even give it away for the price of the boards, yet the football ground my wife runs 5k a year per company, and she has a few of them up and around the place.

Over the years I've found at both my rugby and cricket grounds that the best way of generating revenue is to sell a corporate package as opposed to just an advertising board. e.g. pre-match lunch, company advert etc in matchday programme, thanks over the tannoy system, company name on shirts etc etc. Theses packages can be designed to suit an individual or a companys requirements and can be far more lucrative than just a board.

Once heard at an old ground that permanent advertising boards needed planning permission and we were made to remove them.

Set a standard for the size and the installation, nothing looks worse than a mish mash of sizes, heights etc

Yes Steve, quite right. Our sizes are all the same depth to fit the picket fencing that surrounds the ground

Of course there's no bounce, bend your back and put some bloody effort in.

I think we charge £150 a year.

What goes around, comes around

We received £100 for the ones we did, but the Companies supplied the banners.

Off on a tangent ...

At an old club of mine there were a line of sponsor boards down one side of the ground.

In order next to each other ....

A wedding specialists

A solicitors

A funeral directors

Seemed to sum up all you'd need in life.

Thats right Vic. You do need planning permission if they are fixed. That is why you see a lot in farmers fields on the sides of trailers.
