You are free to seek the sponsorship of any appropriately themed sponsor in the blood bowl universe. It can be a traditional sponsor such as Nurgle King, or one you've come up with on your own that has some thematic tie-in. The previous three sponsors are still theoretically available as a sponsor, but the benefits they provided are now available to all through the spending of Iron Deathmarks. Our sponsorship gallery should help you find an appropriate one or facilitate you inventing one of your own sponsors.
Corporate sponsors like their teams getting lots of press as it increases the corporations exposure. The more exposure your team gets for their sponsor the more funds the sponsor will provide your team to use at their discretion.
The basics to earn sponsorship funds require you do the following:
Create an initial entry in the "Sponsorship Forum" titled " seeking sponsorship from . The post should include a short background on why your team is such a good match for the sponsor and any other random stuff you want to include. You will most likely be approved unless for some reason we feel the sponsor needs to be reserved or we feel a need to limit how many teams seek the same sponsor.
For (approximately) every three fluff pieces / match reports you write during the course of the season your team will be awarded 5K DM's at the end of the season. You are not limited to writing about your teams matches feel free to create your own approach to enriching the league experience. Each team is limited to 12 pieces per season and about one per week (you can put out multiple pieces in a week, but they should not be artificially broken up to make more and this should not resemble the way in junior high I turned in all of my papers in the final week each quarter and still got full credit).
All fluff pieces/match reports must mention the sponsor in some way and should include some sponsor imagery** in the majority of them (i.e. corporate logo).
Match Reports should be posted in the match reports/current season forum; miscellaneous fluff pieces should go under the miscellaneous fluff forum.
If your opponent posts a match report before you get a chance, feel free to respond to it in a creative "fluff" way to earn credit for your team as well. This is an attempt to be fair with the fact that both teams may want sponsorship credit and it may seem silly to recap a match that someone else already recapped, just find a way to give your team's undoubtedly very different view of the same events.
At the overlords' collective discretion if anyone goes above and beyond we reserve the right to reward more than the posted amounts or limits would allow.
**I say the majority of them to give you time to track down or create the imagery, but feel free to steal straight from the gallery if one is available already. If you need help let me know and I'll see what can be done.
