What is Pledge-a-Ball:
Local businesses helping local children. Pledge-a-Ball provides grassroots football teams and schools a free set of footballs, whilst creating a stronger link between the business community and the local community. In doing so we help inspire a generation of young children to feel valued and empowered in their future development, both in sport and future career paths.
The aims of Pledge-a-Ball
To inspire children playing football to feel valued. To increase the standards of equipment teams and schools use. Enable local businesses to enhance their reputation in their local community
How Pledge-a-Ball works
A local business pays for the set of personalised match footballs for the local grassroots team to train and play with throughout the season. At the end of the season all of the players are asked to autograph the set of footballs, making players feel like superstars. One of the signed footballs is presented back to the local business as a keep sake, as perhaps one of those autographs will end up being our World Cup hero. One of the footballs the club keeps. The remaining autographed footballs are returned to us at 1v1, where we will then distribute them to our chosen charity partners who will delveiver them to kids either living in care in teh this country or living a life of poverty elsewhere.
What to do now
Design your personalised football using our 3D football designer, and fully customise them to suit your team. Choose a design template, select the team colours then add teh team or club logo. We have now created a share function, that you can copy the link of your desing and share it with local businesses. There is room for you to add the business logo onto the football design if you choose, which gives the football that extra wow factor when the locla business see the football design for the first time.
