Do you think you have what it takes to be a Rhinos Business Ambassador? We are looking for some our most loyal fans to help spread the word about the club and get their work colleagues excited about the new season.
One such super fan is Clair Hufton, our Rhinos Business Ambassador at the Asda head office in Leeds. The Business Ambassador Scheme is a way to show your support for the club, help us grow our fanbase and introduce the people you work with on a daily basis to the club.
Stephen Costello from the Rhinos Marketing team will support you and help tailor promotions for Business Ambassadors with special offers for memberships, match tickets, hospitality packages etc. Leeds Rhinos will provide the marketing material for these special offers.
By becoming an ambassador you are entitled to a massively reduced season ticket plus you can offer your colleagues a Business Group Season Ticket Discount Offer and you will have access to signed balls, shirts and tickets to run competitions and promotions in your business. Plus once a season we will come to your place of work with the one and only Ronnie the Rhino.
All we require from you is to promote Leeds Rhinos memberships, matches and offers, which we are sure most of you are doing anyway! You must attend and bring a group (minimum 15 people) to at least one match per season.
Clair has been able to sell over 100 season tickets as part of the Business Ambassadors Scheme and says it is a great way to get to know your work colleagues and share your love of all things Rhinos. She commented, "I do it for the club really, as long as the process is simple and easy, and doesn't take your time up then it's fine. More and more people from work are going to games as team activities but interest certainly increases when staff or players from the Rhinos come in to do promotions.
"We have a social news and weekly bulletin that we can put details of the offer in, staff members put their name on a link along with how many tickets they require, I order them and they collect & pay from me once I've received the tickets, it couldn't be easier. I would definitely recommend the Rhinos Business Ambassador Scheme to any work place," added Clair.
If you're interested in becoming a Rhinos Ambassador please attend our inaugural Rhinos Ambassador Conference in the Headingley Pavilion on Sunday 9th February from 9.30 to 11.30am. Bacon sandwiches and coffee served on arrival.
