Who Can Crowdfund On PledgeSports?

We often receive emails asking, “Who Can Crowdfund”, “Can I be on PledgeSports?”, “What age do I have to be?”, “Can I set up a campaign for someone else?”, and “What country must I be from?”

Screenshot-2015-07-29-11.13.48The answer to all of the above questions is that any athlete or team, of any age, from any country, professional or otherwise, can set up a campaign for themselves or on behalf of someone they know.

Crowdfunding Is For Everyone

We have now had campaigns successfully fundraise in 48 countries and four continents around the world.  Our success stories travel far and we are getting inquiries from different countries and sports on a weekly basis.

The sports include anything from main stream ones like football, rugby etc to tennis, running, hockey and horse-riding to the likes of ultra-running, Deaflympics, finswimming and tchoukball (learn more about that and many other crazy niche sports here!)

Karen-DarkeWe have also helped to fund events, books and films one of which shows the 2016 Paralympics in Rio from an athlete’s perspective – check out their fantastic fundraiser!

We have worked with people from aged anywhere between seven and the mid-fifties. We’re too polite to disclose more accurate ages, but the fact is that you’re never too young or too old to get started on achieving your ambitions and we are on hand to help you do exactly that.

We have even helped crowdfund a snow factory for a ski resort, raising over £60k and counting!

Here is a list of what kind of stuff we cover:

  • Any athlete or team
  • Sports clubs
  • University teams
  • Organisations
  • Charities
  • Films & books
  • Sports companies
  • Events

Crowdfunding Caters For All Levels

Sas1Another question we get asked a lot is “What standard do I have to be?”.

When it comes to competitive standard the answer is simple – you can be of any level.

We have people who have recently taken up a particular sport and love it, so they want to progress to competition level.

We have talented kids whose parents need to fundraise to progress their future. We have people competing at a national level who want to progress to competing internationally. We have local sport clubs in teams from children’s teams to national, international and even Olympic teams.

We have even helped institutions and government sporting bodies raise money.

pledge-44Everyone is looking for commercial sponsorship but let’s be realistic here – commercial sponsors want the very well-known and popular names at the top of their game.

Here are a few examples of success and the reasons why they nailed it!
