Anthony Khan talked about why the organisation exists and how important the alliance is between clubs, fans and their community. Anthony shared further thoughts on the National Sports Pyramid framework and the Sports Alliance Global Big Data vision. In this Global Data Vision, an exciting partnership was announced between Sports Alliance in Europe and SSB in the United States.

How Clubs Use Personalisation to Connect Digitally

Mobile Apps for Clubs and rights holders have been around for years now. But personalising these Apps based on user interactions is still a challenge. Priya Narasimhan shows how YinzCam has created a platform that makes mobile apps personal enable by integrations with Sports Alliance.

Sports Alliance Community Initiative

The need for technical solutions in the Community sector is perhaps more dramatic than the requirement has been on the Commercial side of sport, and that need remains completely unaddressed. Anthony Khan and Jonny Pearson presented an integrated and easy to use solution for the Community sector with examples from the Bristol Sport Foundation.

Sustaining Sponsorship and Corporate Support

For the final presentation of the day, we looked at the key elements that make up a successful sponsor/Club relationship – usually a combination of excellent sponsorship management and innovative sponsor activation. Matt Swindells and Mike Banville show what is possible with some examples from Europe and the US, including an introduction to Sponsorship Central.
