Do you know of anyone interested in sponsoring a Mens soccer team?(SAUSL) San Antonio United Soccer Leaugue. I have been paying money for uniforms and referee fees most of the time out of my own pocket because team members dont always have the money. I have been doing this for several years now but it is getting too expensive to run. I also welcome new members but those who are serious since players take off during the season and don't return the uniform I purchased. If there is a place I could find out this information I would appreciate the advice.

You need to do a better job of selling it. Is there an advantage to sponsoring the team? What venues are you seen at? Do your players spend money (I think you already answered that)? Etc.

Basically this note says "someone please pay for my soccer team because we can't". Not trying to be rude, but if you're going to find a sponsor, you need to extol the value that sponsoring the team would bring.

Find some local bars and restaurants around the venue. Frequent them after the games with your team for a while, then ask them to sponsor. It's easier to get a sponsor if you show you have some sort of value, instead of just asking for money because it's too expensive for you.

Sell it to businesses in the area or business around where you work. If you would like to put a letter together to ask for sponsorship I will be happy to proof it for you.
