This will be the second year we will be offering advertising on one of the most popular websites the Upper Peninsula has to offer . This site was launched as a way to organize all the information that can be gathered on the history of Upper Peninsula High School Football. UP-Football covers every Upper Peninsula team with schedules, scores, standings, rosters, and even predictions on the message board. Thanks to our Advertising Sponsors all of this coverage will always be free of charge and hassle.
The UP-Football community has grown rapidly. In 6 years of existence the traffic on this website has grown on an average of 50% a year. This football season UP-Football is expected to have near 10 million "hits" and reach almost 20,000 unique visitors each month. UP-Football has now turned into one of the top internet sites in all of the Upper Peninsula.
To help sponsors get the most out of their advertising dollar the advertising rates will be per year. With this being a "seasonal" website (more traffic during football season then off season), it makes more sense for us to sell ads by the year instead of the month. The only ad space available per month is the message board, which has only one large ad space available and has the highest traffic on the site. The one year advertising will always start on August 1st and expire on July 31st of the following year. Previous sponsors will have until the end of June to renew their advertising space from the previous year. We will do discounts for those who wish to purchase more then one of the choices.

That is not to say businesses can't take advantage of this area either. In fact we offer a discount for anyone who wants to purchase all 14 weeks (9 regular weeks games and 5 playoff weeks). The discounted price is $100 for all 14 weeks, which is a total savings of $40. The dimensions of this banner are 150x100 pixels. A link will be provided to your website if you have one.
