We’re sports-mad at Catapult PR, with this counting as one of our major interests, but also being an area in which we have tons of expertise.
Our managing director has handled major Premiership and Championship football sponsorships, maximising these so the sponsor gets much more than just their name on a shirt. She has also generated mass media coverage for one of the more quirky of English sporting occasions – the All England Open Stone Skimming Championships – for many years, generating features in the likes of the ‘Guardian’ and ‘Independent’, TV and radio coverage and much more besides.
Our ‘Send Shirts to Skopje’ campaign for Yorkshire Building Society was one of our favourites to date and a campaign whose results demonstrate just what we can achieve when we combine our renowned creativity with our passion for sport.
We have a qualified NCTJ sports journalist in our ranks (should we mention he won a national prize for being one of the top three students?), who still writes match reports for the Football League paper, as well as for cricket websites, not to mention regularly being interviewed about sporting matters on a London-based radio station and having his own radio programme on Preston Hospital Radio!
And we’ve even worked around the fringes of sport, writing a guide to safety on the ski slopes and handling PR for a knee surgeon who deals with many sports injuries.
If you are a sporting association, or member-based organisation, which is looking to raise its profile and attract and retain members, look no further. We have already proved how successful PR can be for member-based organisations and we are sure your campaign could be just as successful.
