Adopt an Eagle
Did you know that over 50% of our players, at one time or another, access Funding options to help support the cost of registration fees? Our Adopt an Eagle Program provides you with an opportunity to help out with the costs of participating in tackle football.
Our Registrar works with families who could use a helping hand. While we may not be permitted to share the player’s name with you, we’ll ensure your donation makes its way to support a current player with the Etobicoke Eagles Family.
Your sponsorship will be used to offset the registration of a player who cannot afford the registration costs. This sponsorship opportunity is for those who want to make a difference in the lives of aspiring elite football players from behind the scenes.

Club Level Sponsorship
The Etobicoke Eagles Football Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving youth in Etobicoke and surrounding areas since 1998. The organization's objectives are to demonstrate and inspire integrity, character, fair play and sportsmanship to boys and girls aged 14-19 years old. Our league is run 100% by committed volunteers, passionate about football and the positive effects it provides all players.
The Etobicoke Eagles take pride in being able to provide most of the high quality gear a player needs for a season, to all our members. This is a huge advantage that youth football provides over other sports, making it extremely cost-effective, especially considering kids grow so fast. Our equipment replacement budget exceeds $30,000 annually.
Why Sponsorship is Needed
Through football, youth learn the importance of hard work, dedication and sacrifice. Players are continually discovering the life lessons of trust and accountability to oneself and each member of the team. The same qualities that can be found in all successful businesses are equally important on the football field.
Today in Canada 1 in 3 families cannot afford to play youth sports, sadly this statistic exists within our own community. Currently we have athletes with a great passion for football, a burning desire to play, yet unable to suit up and take the field as cost is a barrier. With your support we can eliminate barriers and continue to make football the accessible game it is.
Sponsorship Support enables us to:
Join us a 2023 Corporate Sponsor
Various levels of sponsorship to suit your budget
Acknowledgment of support through all Social Media, home game public announcements, on our website and banners at home field.
With your generous support, you have the opportunity to make a real difference in our community. We will be able to continue to offer an excellent and affordable football program to the youth of Etobicoke and surrounding areas, instilling the values that football provides and are so important in today’s society.
