    I really wonder that when you read threads on P8ntballer.com and see sposored by; does this mean that that teams are given FREE product.

    to me sponsored is when you are given FREE product, not cheaper product.
    Beckham isnt given cheap Brylcream, he is p[aid to use it.

    i my opinion sponsership is anything that a company gives to a team which helps in some way,

    There are differing levels of sponsorship, from fully sponsored (everything Free, or even costs paid) to Discounts on products,


    I see both as sponsorship, as even discounts can make the difference between being able to play, and not.

    but???

    I can see any help as a form of sponsorship, obviously if someone wants to sponsor RDX, with free paint markers etc... we'd rip their arms off... BUT that unlikely at the moment, so we are happy with any help given, by the industry, and try to acknowledge it..

    Heres how I see it,
    Sponsored = Support be it a lot or a little.
    Fully sponsored = Free everything.
