Paintball team sponsorships may be obtained through conducting research into paintball friendly companies and paintball equipment manufacturers. These businesses are the prime candidates for paintball sponsorship. Paintball sponsoring proves funding, equipment and at times areas to have paintball competition. Paintball sponsorship buys marketing of the paintball sponsor's product in the form of banners, use of paintball gear, or advertisement with logo or sign included with the paintball team in publications or calendars or the logo and name of company of the team's website.
Paintball sponsors usually have websites where forms may be filled out to the sponsor's specifications. These sponsors also want to know about team performance. If possible, documented proof of a team's performance is helpful so that the potential sponsor may see the dedication of a particular team. A list of the paintball team's tournaments, team participants, any special information about team members or accomplishments of the team or any donations or charity work the team has taken part in. Paintball team sponsors donate clothing, paintball equipment such as masks, paint, air tanks, and other essential equipment for paintball play. Paintball sponsorships are given to the teams that would be most lucrative to sponsor, meaning the team that has the most positive exposure and who actually perform well.
The type of sponsorship the donating paintball sponsor receives depends on how much is donated to the team. Many times paintball team sponsors have only one or two contributing sponsors to help support their effort, and so the advertisement ambitious teams contribute is substantial.
