    Tweet I’m always on the lookout for new, out-of-the-box ticket promotions, so when I got this email campaign from Rutgers, it definitely peaked my interest. Essentially, if you purchase a ticket at the “UWin” price for the first non-conference men’s basketball game, you get a free ticket to the next home game, and you can continue to get free tickets to each subsequent non-conference game as long as Rutgers wins. Historically, Rutgers men’s basketball has not been a very competitive program, so this is an interesting way to drive interest in these early…

    As the NBA season gets going, here are three of the many best practices teams have put forth this past week, with many more to come.   Sixers, Media, Mix It up: The relationship between teams and media members is probably as cautious and contentious in some cases as it has ever been, but some teams and officials still do “get it,” and understand that there needs to be a co-existence as both professionals, and more importantly, as people. Case in point this past week was the Sixers hosting a pickup game for all their media with team staff. CEO Scott O’Neil loves to ball, and mixed…

    For all the talk about baseball needing to catch up with the times, the traditions of how the game is played remain hallowed ground, and one of those traditional points of execution is the sacrifice; literally giving your chance at glory up to move a runner along. Sometimes as we focus on the glory of the big hit or the big strikeout, those little nuances get lost. During the World Series, sacrifice is not only something that is part of the game on their field. As Commissioner Bud Selig puts a ribbon on his time as commissioner, he has helped lead the charge to do something few sports…

    The West Virginia University has some of the longest treks of any school in the country because of its far off affiliations with the largely Midwest and Southwest schools of the Big 12. It is a lot harder to build rivalries when you are no longer playing Pitt or Syracuse or even Maryland regularly. The level of competition is certainly steep, but so is the travel.   However the school took on a newer initiative on October 25, one which transcends every border thorough the digital space, and pulled together anyone with even a slight affinity to the Mountaineers from around the world.

One year without hockey….I really don’t know how Canadians survived! After the lockout was over, MLSE hired 100+ people within a few months, many of whom were new to the Sports Industry.

  • College Football Playoff Preview?

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:28 am
    The Egg Bowl should be called the no respect bowl. Mississippi State and Ole Miss went completely unnoticed by anyone heading into the season and now they are two of the top teams in the country. Normally this rivalry doesn’t get out of the state as it goes for popularity, but this year it could determine who goes to the College Football Playoff. While both teams could still get in regardless of who loses this game, it is safer for the team to just win and insert themselves into the final four. This season has been a huge surprise for everyone in college football. I am shocked at how these…

  • Tips for Hosting Successful Sporting Events

    Jennifer Smith
    7 Oct 2014 | 12:57 pm
    Sporting events can be extremely profitable for the right company or entrepreneur. Additionally, sporting events offer a worthwhile sponsorship opportunity to marketers who want to reap the benefits of being seen by attendees. Unfortunately, getting started won’t be easy – nor will it be cheap. After initial costs and plans are laid out, there’s even more to think about in terms of hosting, promotion, permits, zonings; and the list continues on. If you think you can handle all the dilemmas that may (and probably will) arise, you’re ready to host your own sporting event. Sporting…
  • When Covering Sports is Not Just About Sports

    12 Sep 2014 | 10:51 am
    It’s rather interesting; when championships are spoken of, a great deal of people are actually speaking of surrounding social affairs.  The commentary centers upon commercials, foods, drinks, and places for getting our groove on. Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience. In today’s society, we don’t like others to encroach upon whom we support. The choice, bluntly stated, is individually ours to make. Bestow all the accolades you desire on your team, just…
  • Where Are The Ryder Cup Headlines This Year?

    Jennifer Smith
    8 Sep 2014 | 10:36 am
    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

    Next week the NBA season will tip off, with LeBron’s return to Cleveland, Phil Jackson reshaping New York, Miami revamping itself, Kobe coming back to action in LA and the Spurs looking to defend. However shortly after the NBA gets rolling, the NBA D-League will kick off its season, with perhaps the best strategic positioning the league has ever had. D-League as a viable business platform? A few years ago the thought of a D-League franchise sent marketers and owners running for cover. The League was a business loss leader, with no real hope of marketing or business success. However under…

With their signature bearded brothers and shiny box, the cherry-flavored drops were not only around when you had a cough or a sore throat, but often times were used as candy when other items weren’t around. However in the uber competitive, high spend marketing world of cold products, Smith Brothers disappeared from the marketplace in favor of brands like Hall’s, and Cold-eeze, and Ricolah, many of whom spent big time in the sports space.   However as a story by Danny Ecker in Crains Chicago pointed out this week,…

Since I attended the conference last year, I had the benefit of having some frame of reference and a comparison.  Overall, I enjoyed this year’s conference more than last year.  The variety of companies presenting were closer to my interests and I could understand the concepts a lot better.  Let’s just…

  • Typhoons and Travel: Hong Kong Edition

    Geographically, it quickly became apparent why the British had colonized Hong Kong. The land was full of deep natural ports surrounded by large mountains, offering ships protection from typhoons or whatever else Mother Nature might offer-up. I guess we should have taken a ship. In the days leading up to our travel from Beijing to Hong Kong there was a lot of talk about a typhoon that was hitting HK precisely when we where scheduled to arrive. Sure enough, it did. Flights were delayed and we spent a few extra hours in the airport but the storm cleared out just as fast as it came in and the…
