How to organise outstanding sports events
Sports events involving the testing of sporting prowess through competition are one of the most enduring of human activities – as a nation, we love them! Sports events not only bring a variety of benefits to the host organisations but also to those who participate in them, such as players, coaches and officials. Not forgetting the tremendous amount of entertainment and enjoyment events bring to those who attend or watch them – the fans, the supporters and the parents.
Sports events are also an important and growing part of the events industry. They include the full spectrum of individual and multi-sport events. Their ability to attract tourist visitors, generate media coverage and raise income, has placed them not only at the forefront of most government event strategies and destination marketing programmes, but also high on the agenda of sports governing bodies, Sports centres, Sports Development Officers and clubs. Every week sports clubs, Sports Development Officers, Sports Centres and governing bodies up and down the country organise a mix of local, regional, national and international sports events. So how do you organise a sports event that delivers on all fronts?
