Why Sponsor?

By investing in the Empire Throwing Club, you support something much greater than a group of hooligans throwing rocks in a field. We are a growing community of athletes and organizers dedicated to preserving our heritage. Each of us is drawn to the highland games for different reasons. Whether to celebrate the ancient traditions of strength and competitive spirit, build community, or spread knowledge and love for our heritage. 

Participation in the highland games is growing globally, and so are we. As our membership and following grow, our events and activities expand with them. Through our competitions and training workshops we have seen dozens of new athletes take the field to discover the highland games for themselves in just a couple short years. We have also seen crowds of hundreds turn out to watch, cheer, and celebrate these ancient games with us. 

We must continue to feed and water our events to see them grow. Hosting highland games competitions incurs costs, and through our early successes we have realized a need to partner with local commercial and industry partners to ensure a strong future. By supporting us, you become part of the Capital District's highland strength community!

How to Sponsor

See your logo proudly displayed on competitor's shirts, as well as our website main page and social media posts. Your business will be thanked and acknowledge at our competitions over the loudspeaker.

In addition to the benefits of the Bronze package, Silver level sponsors may have their logo or business name displayed on a competition caber or the standards (see below). They will have special signage displayed on the field, and dedicated social media posts for thanks and acknowledgement. 

You get the Bronze package. You get the Silver package. But you also get your business logo added to the Empire Throwing Club banner, which is displayed at up to a dozen different highland games competitions throughout the Northeast each year. You will also be able to set up your own promotional tent alongside ours at competitions, where you can cross-promote your business and get a front-row seat for the action.
