The highlight of May and always one of the high points of the year was our trip to Wembley for the Vanarama National League Promotion Final, between Boreham Wood and Tranmere Rovers. As the Official Agency of The National League for the last eleven years, part of our remit is to brand Wembley for The Vanarama Big Day Out. The Sports 360 team ventured down separately in the hours before the game but by 8am on matchday, we were hard at work getting the stadium branded and ready for when the BT Sport cameras started rolling………………..
Between the blowing of the final whistle and the lifting of the trophy, we have a small window to erect the headers and banners for the on-pitch trophy presentation as well. It’s a hectic end to the season for us, but we pride ourselves on delivering season after season and as you can see from the photo, similarly to the last eleven years, we didn’t let ourselves or the league down.
No sooner had our heads hit the pillow, we were up and at ‘em on Sunday morning to do the same again at the National League North and South Finals. This year we had a team at Hampton & Richmond to crown Braintree Town South Play Off Final winners, as well as team at Harrogate Town to crown the home side winners in The North Final. Three trophy presentations delivered in three locations inside 24 hours is no mean feat, but we are Sports 360, we love what we do and “We’ve got every angle covered.”
We were delighted to attend the Josh Warrington fight courtesy of 32Red towards the end of the month and to see him crowned IBF Featherweight Champion of the World at Elland Road made it a truly special night. Boxing matches aren’t events we attend a lot due to our commitments in other sports, but we really appreciate the invite from 32Red and to witness one of the fights of the year just topped it off.
We had the pleasure of being a ‘Giant for the day’ courtesy of Huddersfield Giants, where partners of the club are fed, trained and generally treated like a Rugby League player for the day. To see the quality and humility of the players up close is a real eye opener and we thank them for giving up their time to offer their coaching expertise throughout the day. We attend numerous partner events throughout Super League and the day with Huddersfield Giants is undoubtedly one of the best.
We’ve mentioned an impending kit sponsorship deal in previous months and we are delighted to say that this will be announced in the middle part of June. We really are looking forward to the launch and are sure the fans and everyone connected to the club will be delighted with the new kit and front of shirt partner.
2018 has been a great year up to this point and continues to be a success for Sports 360 and it’s safe to say, so far, the force is with us!
