About this agreement
People are sponsored for a variety of reasons and in many different ways. This contract has been drawn to be flexible and to cover many situations without being difficult to edit.
Sponsorship is common within sport, but this agreement could also be used where the arrangement is one of product endorsement, most likely by a well known person (for example, an actor agreeing to wear a manufacturer's products at public events).
A large part of the agreement covers the substance of the deal. We provide a multitude of examples which you can either delete if not applicable, edit or add your own.
We include further legal paragraphs not usually included in such agreements that protect both sides in case of later disagreement or non-fulfilment. These can also be edited to your requirements.
The agreement is governed by the laws of England and Wales, but the location of either party could be elsewhere. The agreement could, for example, be used by a British company to sponsor a Russian musician.
