the proper funds and resources, no organization would be able to
survive. For that reason, the WFJF has created a sponsorship system
which benefits the global governing body over the sport of finger
jousting and its patrons. This sponsorship system is divided into
two categories: federation partnership and event sponsorship.
partnerships are annual sponsorships on the top organizational level.
They are directly involved with the WFJF and indirectly involved
with tournaments and other events. Partners provide funds and resources
to the WFJF in exchange for vast promotional opportunities and other
services and goods. As well as funds and resources, federation partners
often offer discount products or services for hierarchs and/or official
members and employ cross-promotions.
partners would be able to market their good or service as the "official
___ of the WFJF." They would also be ensured that a competitor
in the market of their good or service would not be able to be a
partner of the WFJF; they would basically have a monopoly in professional
finger jousting. Our partners would be featured on all event and
tournament publications as well as on the website. There would also
be an option for one premier partner who would have special benefits.
The federation partners would have an initial commitment of at least
a year, but it could be extended.
sponsorships are individual sponsorships on the event level. They
are directly involved with events such as tournaments but not with
the federation. Sponsors provide funds and sometimes resources for
individual events in exchange for promotional opportunities and
other services and goods. As well as funds and sometimes resources,
event sponsors often set up booths with their good or service at
events and employ cross-promotions.
As with the federation partners, event sponsors are guaranteed a
monopolistic hold in their market for that individual event; however,
that does not hold if a federation partner is in the same market.
Sponsors would be featured on all publications for that individual
event and would have a spot on the event page of the website.
are three different types of event sponsors for most tournaments:
title, arena, and program. The title sponsor has their name in the
tournament name as well as many other benefits. The arena sponsor
has their logo in the center of an arena mat as well as almost as
many benefits as the title sponsor. The program sponsor does not
have as many benefits as the others but does get in tournament publications.
There are also miscellaneous roles similar to sponsors such as caterers.
If you think that you or your organization/business/entity would
like to sponsor an event or the WFJF itself, please contact
us and check out the sponsorship
& partnership webpage. Note that the WFJF will not
be the sponsee or partner of programs, companies, organizations,
or events that support political or religious organizations or denigrate,
exclude, or offend minority community groups. We hope to be hearing
from potential sponsors and partners soon.
