Sponsors are key to the Regatta’s continuing success every year. There are many different ways you can support us – from sponsoring races to putting on entertainment.
Benefits for sponsors
Sponsoring Durham Regatta is a great opportunity for your business.

- Reach up to 10,000 spectators and 2,000 competitors during the event through programmes, banners and announcements.
- Appear in media coverage of the North East’s premier rowing event, in outlets like BBC North East & Tees, the Northern Echo, and our website.
- Enjoy a dedicated space in the Regatta enclosure for corporate hospitality or promotion.
