For many fans or players, a company’s presence in the hallowed realm of sport is often seen as a marketing ploy, a tick in the ‘social responsibility box’, or an attempt to make them look good via sport.
But what if you could develop an authentic project that uses the power of sport to create genuine social, environmental or sporting impact while still delivering on commercial KPIs?
And what if you could team up with other like-minded thinkers in government, sporting bodies, and academe to scale up your project for greater positive change and higher profit margins?
The Sports Diplomacy Alliance has decades of experience in linking sport to commercial projects. Everyone has extended business performance while delivering social transformation. The Alliance is a master at navigating the opaque, complex space where sport, politics, and business overlap.
Whether thinking of developing technologies, expanding into new markets, or fulfilling corporate social responsibility obligations, sport can increase your brand, networks, and bottom line.
The role, power, and meaning of sport are in a zeitgeist moment. In the modern world sport drives conversations around social or climate justice, fan engagement, athlete wellbeing, gender equality, and sustainable development. The lines between sport, politics and activism are blurrier than ever, while fans, players, and communities have higher expectations of brands to be authentic, trustworthy, and progressive.
But how do commercial firms profitably enter this new playing field while creating a meaningful ‘sport for business’ strategy that delivers both financial and sporting gains?
Strategically investing in Sport Diplomacy generates universal goodwill, new partnerships, and bigger profits.
