Unacceptable Sponsorship

ANYTHING associated with poor health e.g. smoking and alcohol

It would be unacceptable for a youth team to be sponsored by Carling as it would promote unhealthy habiats and underage drinking, which is against the law. Instead the youth team could be sponsored by Nike which would be more beneficial to them as Nike may be able to provide equipment that will help them advance their skills.
