Businesses large and small are invited to be involved and support Tram Sunday through sponsorship, which enables the event to get better and bigger every year. Without a variety of funding streams, organising an event on such a scale would be completely impossible.

Fleetwood Tram Sunday brings an estimated 60,000 people into Fleetwood and is worth an estimated £1 million to the local economy.
