YOUR INVITATION TO PARTNER WITH US
Nothing is more important to us than the invaluable support of our generous sponsors
An invitation to partner with one of Hong Kong’s most passionate and dynamic sporting clubs.
The Discovery Bay Pirates were founded initially as a Rugby club in 2003. Since then it has grown into a large, multi-sport club, incorporating Netball, Hockey and Dragon Boating sections.
The Discovery Bay Pirates now has over 1200 active members including players and coaches as well as passionate supporters, local families and generous sponsors all cheering us on from the sidelines.
A UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY
We believe that any relationship we develop with our sponsors must be truly Win:Win. We want you to get to know us, work with us in a partnership and be part of developing a sports club to rival the best in Hong Kong. Sponsorship of the DB Pirates creates a unique opportunity to access a passionate network of people who believe in community, healthy living, family values and shared experiences.
What does it mean to be
a DB Pirates sponsor?
Let’s just cut to the chase.
Sponsorship creates an opportunity for:
• Calling the DB Pirates your own.
• Having your brand on playing shirts across our sporting sections.
• Unrivalled promotion of your brand to the club’s membership and to the wider sporting community during club activities, both in DB and when competing elsewhere in Hong Kong and internationally.
• Branding across all club social media, newsletters & press releases.
• Acknowledgement and signage at key events.
• ‘Point of Play’ profile at numerous leagues and tournaments.
• Opportunities to mix socially with our membership at events across the year, offering direct channels to promote your brand and services.
At every training day, game day and tour, our coaches, members and players become ambassadors for your brand, seen by thousands of individuals attending sporting events and training sessions throughout Hong Kong and overseas.
Relationships. It’s all about trust.
Our sponsorship programme is managed by the DB Pirates Board –
a passionate and dedicated team of volunteers, all DB residents, representing each of our sporting sections. They bring to the board eexperience in a broad range of sports and business management.
The DB Pirates board ensures that your business can fully leverage your brand within our community, that your sponsorship funds are used wisely, and our personal approach enables you to have a reliable and immediate point of contact for all club-related matters.

A beneficial partnership for everyone
As a key strategic alliance, our relationship with the DB Pirates has been long and supremely enjoyable. The Pirates' community fits the demographic of our clients, and we work with the Club to add value to their membership through relevant webinars and product offers.
St. James' Place
As our local sporting club right here in Discovery Bay, we enjoy working closely with the DB Pirates, and value their work with young people and adults who live in and around Discovery Bay.
Good relationships start with a discussion, a meeting of shared goals and objectives and beneficial outcomes. Our sponsorship with the DB Pirates has benefited both sides of the equation, with many unexpected and pleasant opportunities to work with the membership, while supporting a great club.
