If you upload an image, only the image will be displayed on the tournament page. Your sponsor name will not be displayed separately.
## Sponsorship Pledge & Handling Fees
The sponsorship pledge tiers are set by the tournament's organizer.
You may be able to choose from a number of fixed sponsorship tiers, input your own pledge amount, or select either option.
15% will be deducted from your total pledge as a handling fee before the subsequent amount is transferred to the organizer.
## Sponsorship Approval
Organizers are notified whenever someone applies to become a sponsor.
An organizer will then have seven days to process the application.
If your application is approved, your sponsor name or image will be displayed on the tournament page.
If your application is rejected, or not approved within seven days, your payment of the pledged amount will be canceled.
