The support of the local community, including local businesses, will be instrumental in the continued success of our venture. We therefore very much hope that we can count on support of local businesses.
What are the benefits?
The main business benefit of becoming a KHIST Corporate Member is the opportunity of having your business shown as supporting KHIST to Kidderminster Harriers fans, by way of your company having it’s own advertising banner appear here on the KHIST website as well as on our KHIST newsletters which are published each month and displayed at pertinent locations around Aggborough stadium!
There are 2 banners shown on the right hand side and 2 at the bottom of every webpage here on the KHIST website, all of which are picked entirely at random by a computer script. The banners can either be produced by yourself or we can design one for you.
Some other benefits a business will receive for becoming a Corporate Member of KHIST include:
- Evidence of showing your business supporting its community – an excellent PR and marketing vehicle.
- An opportunity to feature in regular articles posted on the KHIST website.
- An opportunity to have a featured article in one of the KHIST newsletters distributed to approximately 1000 local people at several home matches each season.
- A shareholding in KHIST.
- Opportunity for exclusive sponsorship at any fundraising events organised by KHIST.
How much does it cost?
All of these benefits of becoming a Corporate Member of KHIST come at the low cost of just £50 per year.
For ease of administration, KHIST Membership commences on 1st September each year, however you can join at anytime at a pro-rata rate (e.g. join in March for £25).

How many people visit the KHIST website?
Our website has a free counter provided by StatCounter.com, which tracks how many people look at our website, what pages they view, etc.
As can be seen in the graph of our website visitors below, we typically average around 2,500 unique visitors to this website each month – all these visitors looking at our Corporate Member’s banners! We’ve had many examples of our Corporate Members telling us that they have discovered that customers have first got in contact with them from seeing their banner on the KHIST website.
Note: during February, KHIST launched a heavy media and Internet campaign to help save KHFC from going out of existence, which resulted in more than 16,000 unique visitors!
