2021 Event Sponsorship Opportunities
 

In September 2019, we honoured nine amazing Nepean athletes, teams, media persons, coaches, and builders, with close to 300 people in attendance at the Nepean Sportsplex, the home of the Sports Wall of Fame.

However, our ceremony scheduled for October 28, 2021, will be different due to Covid-19 restrictions.  We are unable to hold an in-person inductee dinner this year, but our Board made the decision to continue to celebrate deserving individuals by way of an online ceremony. We have eight truly remarkable individuals to honour this year.

Without event revenue from dinner ticket sales as in the past, sponsorships are needed to cover costs of the online broadcast ceremony. These include video production, necessary website upgrades, and plaques for the wall and inductees.

While we expect to return to our traditional in-person dinner ceremony in 2023, we are seeking for this year to obtain 15 corporate sponsorships of $200 or more each from businesses such as yours.  Event sponsorship includes:

  • Multiple mentions on our social media platforms - Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn

  • Mention on our website under our Sponsors page

  • Mention during the virtual event scheduled on October 28, 2021

Ongoing Sponsorship Opportunities

The purpose of the Nepean Sports Wall of Fame is to identify and honour a select number of Nepean athletes, teams, coaches, sport builders and media people, past and present residents, which have excelled in their respective fields of endeavour, either professionally or as non-professionals, at the national or international level.

The idea of a Nepean Sports Wall of Fame began with a group of committed volunteers, along with support from the City of Nepean, in 1984 and the initial inductees had their photos and brief write-ups mounted on plaques and placed on a wall in the entrance to the Nepean Sportsplex on Woodroffe Avenue. The sports wall of inductees continues to be located there.

Due to various circumstances, the process was stopped about 10 years ago and over time several plaques have begun to deteriorate.

In the spring of 2018, a new NSWF Board of Directors was established with some past members and several new individuals. The Board has been moving forward on several fronts including:

  • Restoration of previous plaques - photos and narratives;
     
  • Planning of annual induction ceremonies;
     
  • Having established criteria and a formal nomination process to consider nominees such as sports individuals and teams, coaches, builders and media personalities;
     
  • Securing funding to offset the costs of the restoration of plaques and procurement of the newest inductee plaques for 2019-2023;
     
  • Re-affirming relations with the City of Ottawa with which the former City of Nepean was amalgamated;
     
  • Establishing a robust social media presence;
     
  • Archiving past and current records;
     
  • Co-ordinating efforts with others such as the Ottawa Sport Hall of Fame; and
     
  • Incorporation of NSWF in 2020 and creating a revised governance structure and community engagement model.

The NSWF initiative is operated by volunteers but there are certain modest costs that will need to be incurred, mainly the cost of restoration of existing plaques and the purchase and mounting of plaques for approximately 10 new inductees annually .

The NSWF Board of Directors is seeking individuals or corporate supporters who would be willing to support this endeavour with a one-time total pledge for a three-year period (2021, 2023, 2025) at one of three levels:

 

  • Presenting Sponsor with industry exclusivity, larger logo and company name display in all social media and programs;
     
  • Gold pledge of $1500 large logo and company name display in all social media and programs;
     
  • Silver pledge of $1000 with intermediate size name and logo displays;
     
  • Bronze pledge of $500 with name and logo displays.
     
  • Friends of NSWF individual donations of $25, $50 or $100

Your support will be recognized on our website and in other social media as well as in the NSWF ceremony programs for the period of your pledge.

Contact our Director, David Rattray, for further information at davidrattray@rogers.com or (613) 797-2959.
 

The Nepean Sports Wall of Fame wishes to thank the City of Ottawa and the Nepean Sportsplex
for their co-operation and support in bringing this project forward.
