About us | what we do

We create new and innovative events. These can be either bespoke events, over which the brand has complete ownership and control, or events specifically tailored to a brand.

We provide a consultancy service to any brands or rights holders looking to utilise sport as a platform from which to market their brand or products.

We assist brands to validate sport as an appropriate option for their target market.

We provide sports market research, identifying the potential opportunities within various sports. Then we create integrated sports marketing programmes to achieve brand and business objectives in the selected sport(s).

We identify new business opportunities associated with sport and design programmes to address them.

A little about the team

We have a proven track record of delivering highly successful events based upon our extensive skill and experience.
