win............pretty simple they will be looking for teams that practice and show that they put effort into the sport......getting a paint sponsor honestly is not likely to happen for a YG team but if you win and practice and then start looking for sponsors youll have a easier time, thats how we got Exalt and ANSgear and JT sponorships, good luck to all

goto your local field/store and ask (this may be crazy but..) ask them what you can do for them, not what they can do for you, remember your looking to get sponsored not them. ask if they need you to do anything, ie help clean up, help at what ever they need. that is a start for you to show them your serious, remember these guys are out to make a living also so you cant ask what can you give me with out giving something first

go to tourneys play hard, aggressive, fast, and leave no mercy, shoot people up.

this will leave a message on who you are. People will talk about your team, saying watch out for that young team etc..

Then write a really long boring message to a local shop or field, asking whether they will sponsor you. Include, who you are, plans for the next season, how you will support them etc. and contact details..and offer to meet the owner in person.



Good luck to all young teams Mine in UK is going well atm due to what i have just said.

Well dont be dicks and overshoot. Win some stuff before you ask people to sponsor you my team came in 6th at dssp8ntball tourney and first in a ton of locals we still didnt get anything decent and we placed 6th at a regional.

1- Practice alot, the better you get, the better Sponsers you'll get.
2- Try to win tournaments ( not local, Like me were i live every year theres a big tounament in Halifax N.S, its called HCO. try going in those kind of events ( were theres alot of people watching, playing and talking about it )
3- as stafford93 stated write some boring, long email to a company ( start with youre local shop ) and let them give you a chance.
4- once you get you're sponsership always try to get better placements in the league, tournaments etc. that you play in for the company to give you better deal on stuff.
Thats just my .02$

It is very hard to get a sponsorship period.
Especially in these economic times.

First, worry about winning podium spots at events (local).
And, don't expect much from your sponsors.
In paintball, nothing is a free-ride.
VICIOUS isn't a free-ride, their players still pay money to pay.

Sponsors help, but don't let it be your everything.
Once you play at a competitive level, everyone and their aunt has a sponsorship of some type. And, don't expect them to throw free things at your feet.

You have to earn it, and even then, most of the time it's not free.
I love all my sponsors a lot, and we worked hard to get them.

Worry about winning first though, I mean...that's all that matters in reality.
