Sponsorship agreement: sports person or other individual
This agreement provides a flexible framework for defining a sponsorship arrangement, regardless of the activity in which the sponsored person participates, their level of participation and the benefits to each party. The arrangement could be as simple as payment for advertising on clothing, or a more complex arrangement where the sponsored individual acts as a brand ambassador, product tester or content producer.
About this sponsorship agreement
Individuals are sponsored for a variety of reasons and in many different ways. This sponsorship agreement has been drawn to be flexible and to cover many sponsorship situations without being difficult to complete.
A large part of the agreement covers the substance of the deal: what the sponsor will provide in return for the agreed obligations of the person being sponsored. We provide a range of examples to which you can add, edit or delete as appropriate.
The agreement also includes further legal paragraphs not usually included in such documents that protect both sides in case of later disagreement or non-fulfilment. These can also be edited to your requirements.
The agreement is governed by the laws of India, but the location of either party could be elsewhere. The agreement could, for example, be used by an Indian company to sponsor a British cricketer.
