Planning, marketing, and hosting a sports event can be quite overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time doing it. However, with these tips and considerations we can help you get the ball rolling and organise an amazing event.
Preparing Your Sport Event
When you plan for a sports event it’s just about the budget ad timeline, you also need to think about the sports talent and sponsors involved. You need to be able to see the bigger picture.
What is your goal? Is it realistic for that type of sporting event? You need to think about how much time you have to execute it and the time it’ll take to hire sports talent and sponsors.
Sport and Motion have an event sporting team that have years of experience. They can engage audiences through creativity and style, encouraging them to participate within the sporting event whilst pushing the core messages across.
Look at some of the sports talent we have to help you get the most out of your event.
Once you figured out what the overall goal is, you should think about location and date. When is the right time to hold this event? Can you find a venue that’ll have everything need? You need to set some deadlines for yourself to remain organised.
The moment a plan is in place is when you look at financing and sponsorship. You also need to consider supplies for the venue and the health and safety aspect of the event and location.
Promoting A Sporting Event
There’s a lot of competition within the sporting market. Which is why your event must be promotable.
The name of the event needs to be catchy and easy to remember. Posters are great for promoting events at gyms and sport halls. Social media is a great platform for getting influencers to promote your event. Asking all sporting talent and sponsors to help promote the event on their social platforms could gain the right kind of attention.
Hosting A Sports Event
This is probably the most stressful part, which is the day of the event and hosting it. Always check the weather before the day and have preparations in place for if you were planning to do the event outdoors.
Make sure everyone working at the event have been briefed and know exactly what they’re doing. Along with a schedule everyone can see.
Check equipment and that all resources are there. If sporting equipment is being used, you need to make sure any machines are working properly as an accident could be life threatening.
Follow Up After Sports Event
This is your chance to post any coverage and content you can. Along side this you would thank everyone who attended and the workers.
You can use this time to collect feedback to ensure your next event is better.
