We need your help! The Lansing Derby Vixens are a not-for-profit LLC, which means that no one affiliated with the league in any way makes a single penny from their involvement. In fact, skaters actually pay dues to participate!
An enterprise like this simply can’t exist without the generous support of partners within the community! Your financial and in-kind support will help keep this league viable and ensure that Lansing roller derby is around for years to come!
So what YOU get out of the deal? Well, consider the following:
- Roller derby is the fastest-growing sport in the nation. There are currently more than 1,200 leagues, up from just 150 in 2005.*
- There are now nearly 30 teams in Michigan alone.
- Modern roller derby has little in common with the professional wrestling-style spectacle of the 1970s and 80s. Today’s roller derby is a real, full-contact sport overseen by a governing body with strict rules for competition and skater safety.
- That said, women’s flat-track roller derby remains a unique sport with its own personality. The Vixens promote a family-friendly, fun atmosphere.
- The Lansing Derby Vixens have been featured in many of Lansing’s most prominent media outlets, including the Lansing State Journal, WLNS, Fox-47, Lansing NOISE, the Lansing City Pulse, Lansing Capital Gains, Greater Lansing Women’s Lifestyle Magazine, The State News, WILS, TalkLansing.net and more.
- The Lansing Derby Vixens have more than 5,500 fans on Facebook — that’s more than some nationally-ranked teams!
- Vixens home bouts — held at the Lansing Center — routinely sell out, hosting an average of nearly 1,000 fans.
- Derby fans have spending power. Nearly a third of fans have a household income of at least $75,000 per year.*
- Two thirds of all fans know the businesses that support their local derby league, and nearly 90 percent hold a favorable opinion of these businesses. Over 60 percent patronize businesses that sponsor their local league.*
- “Die-hard” derby fans make even more of an effort to support sponsoring businesses — 84 percent know who the sponsors are and almost 80 percent have patronized those businesses.*
So, you see, becoming a sponsor or advertising partner can go a long way in getting your business’s name in front of people who are ready to support you!
