Your chance to back an amazing community project and one of Manchester’s most successful sports clubs.

Founded by Joe and Maggie Forber, who were named Unsung Heroes at the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony, Greater Manchester Community Basketball is a charity that positively impacts the lives of hundreds of children and young adults through basketball, by equipping them with skills that will serve them well in life, not just in the sports arena.

Based in Whalley Range, we are also the home to the Manchester Magic and Manchester Mystics, the most successful junior basketball club in England. We win national titles on a regular basis, produce players who represent their country and even give some the chance to pursue their education alongside exciting playing careers in the United States. We also focus on developing the next generation of coaches and referees.

Sponsoring us is easy to do. And you can pick the amount you want to spend.

For example, you can sponsor…

  • One of our title-chasing junior teams
  • Our flourishing community programme
  • Our hugely successful senior team
  • Individual games and match balls

There are plenty of other packages available, to suit all budgets.

Whatever you decide to do, your money will be well spent, helping us to positively impact the lives of hundreds of children and to inspire and nurture the next generation of basketball stars.

And you’ll get a lot in return…

We believe we can help companies extend their reach and profile, in Manchester and beyond.

Approximately 1000 people visit the centre each week, we travel the length and breadth of the country playing games, we produce a weekly newsletter that reaches hundreds of households, we enjoy good local media coverage and we have a growing impact on social media. For example, our Manchester Magic Twitter account has more than 8,500 followers, while our Manchester Mystics account has more than 4,700.

And if that wasn’t enough to convince you to back us, you will also get free tickets to watch the Manchester Magic’s senior team in action.
