Football in Berkshire is a ‘not for profit’ endeavour aimed at promoting non league, women’s and grassroots football in the Royal County from Newbury to Slough and Bracknell to Maidenhead. You can read more about us here.
However, it still costs money to run the site with server, domain name and other costs which we estimate to total between £400 and £450 a season.
With that in mind, we have the option to allow local business to feature in highly prominent ad slots.
Last season we were sponsored by Courtney Buses, PlaySport, TradeMark Windows, Pulse Academy, David Cliff Estate Agents, Wills & Lewis and Lens Digital amongst others.
Football in Berkshire currently generates an average of 20,014 unique users visiting the site and 50,659 pages viewed a month according to Google Analytics (as of October 2019).
Ad price and duration
To advertise on the site for a whole season (or 12 month period), it is £100 for an MPU (300 pixels wide by 250 pixels high) and Leaderboard (728 pixels by 250 pixels) for the season – June 2020 to May 2019. The ad will run in rotation with the others for 12 months regardless of the start date.

Some notes on what we do:
- The Football in Berkshire editorial team pay their entry fees for any games they go to. This money goes directly to the clubs that need it and we do not use the money earned from the site to pay for this
- Any 'extra' money earned will be distributed to our local clubs in a way that is constructive for both FiB and the clubs in question
- The is only one payment required for a 12 month advert
