CMAP is offering unique opportunities for local businesses to promote their organization and services through local High School Football. Becoming a CMAP sponsor means that our team of professionals will...
- Create a 15 second sponsor video featuring your organization or we can create a graphical slide highlighting your business
- Run the video before and after football games
- Mention your business throughout the game
We broadcast and live stream the games multiple times. The video will also be archived on our website and Youtube channel, and made available to be embedded on your company's website, as well. For sponsorship registration and details, please visit our Football Sponsorship Page.
Why become a CMAP Garlic Festival Sponsor?
CMAP is the only place to watch coverage of high school sports. Your community needs your help to provide this valuable service to local sports.
As a CMAP, you are supporting your local community media center and promoting your business. Also, as a sponsor, you are an "underwrtier" by default.
What is an underwriter?
Underwriting is when a business or individual donates a product, service or funding to assist an access show in return for a non comercial acknowledgement. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Underwriting Guidelines, an underwriting "spot" is (a) no longer than 15 seconds; (b) includes no calls to action (i.e.. "Come on down and BUY our products!); (c) includes no comarative language (i.e. "We're better than that other pizza place!").
Underwriting spots must be placed at the beginning or end of a show versus in the middle to avoid giving the video a "commercial" look.
