In 2019 we were inspired by the 3rd kit of Mexican side Tigres UANL to base our own men's training tops on their tiger pattern shirts, little did we know that it would build a link between ourselves, UK based International Surrey Football and the fans of the most successful club in Monterrey, Mexico. We enjoyed an outpouring on supporting and well-wishing from supporters of the Liga MX side and we've wondered how we could continue to grow this bond.
News of our training tops proved popular with Tigres fans in Monterrey, with our shirts appearing in local news.
We, therefore, devised this crowdfunder to hopefully gather the support of Tigres fans in aiding our 2020/21 season plans while promoting their club in Surrey. We're aiming to raise £1,200 (~MEX$35,000) to give Tigres fans our Gold Tier sponsorship of our Southern Frontier Cup tournament which will see the Tigres name and image spread across the 2-day tournament, but also cover a pitchside banner (like the one below) that will be present at a Surrey football ground all season including during several upcoming Surrey games.
As part of our Gold Tier Sponsorship of our main event in 2021, for this we will incorporate the Tigres image onto our new 2021 kit that will go on sale later this year. (As shown below)
We'll also incorporate Tigres into our website, our tournament programmes, banners around the football stadium. The games will also be live-streamed for free and available internationally with English commentary provided by our partners at CW Sport Radio.
While we're aiming for just £1,200, if we go beyond this, we'll come up with more ways of celebrating the Tigres fans for helping up this season.
