2012 Olympics Inspired - Sports Club and Team Fundraising Ideas!
12th July 2012
The London Olympics Schedule 2012 kicks off on 27 July... and with the slogan 'Inspire a Generation' and Waltzing Matilda blasting out from Channel 9's promo for the Australian Team we certainly have big plans to paint London Aussie Gold & Green this british summer!!
The Olympic Rings are a striking symbol that is recognised everywhere in the world, with the five colours blue, black, red, green and gold representing the union of five continents and the meeting of athletes from across the globe at the Olympic Games.
There are giant sets of rings showing up across the UK, at the Mound in Edinburgh, Birmingham Airport, Newcastle and Gateshead, Cardiff City Hall, London Tower Bridge and the entrance of the Channel Tunnel in France to be seen by thousands of fans travelling to the UK... all of these truly show how the country is ready to welcome in the world this summer! And Team Australia will be greeted by the rings at Heathrow airport when they arrive!
The games are currently held every two years, with Summer and Winter alternating, although they occur every 4 years within their respective seasonal games. Recent games have been held or are
Pyeongchang 2018, Sochi 2014, Vanccouver 2010, Torino 2006, Salt Lake 2002
Rio 2016, London 2012, Beijing 2008, Athens 2004, Sydney 2000

Sports Club and Team Fundraising Ideas!
If you are a club or sporting team and you are looking to raise some much needed funds for your team then Coolaz have the solution. Our coolers are printed in full colour with a photo-quality finish; you can add your team logo and colours, a photograph of the team as well as team names, individual numbers and player names!
Coolaz coolers are ideal for local merchandising - with our low unit price and a proven easy retail of around $5 you will quickly be able to raise funds for your team, event or cause!
Our stubby holders are fantastic as club merchandise; they can be sold over the bar, at the ticket office or on the terraces. They can be tailored for specific events or milestones, as a record of a particular game or perhaps a series of players like collecting cards.
If you offer memberships to your club then our coolers are great as part of a gift pack, as a ticket or season pass - we can offer sequential numbering or barcoding so that each cooler (ticket) is individual. This neat tool of numbering your promotional products is also great for giveaways and lottery/raffle type draws.
If you are holding a corporate event or club function you can also add individual names to double up as place cards for seating arrangements or as name 'badges' for networking nights, a great way to get to know each other and to keep hold of your drink!
