We hit the ground running at the start of October with all eyes and effort on the Betfred Super League Grand Final…… Our 19th season in Super League was looking like a fairytale season for the Salford Red Devils whom we have sponsored through thick and thin since 2005. A trip to Old Trafford could have only been a pipe dream in February yet it became reality after a great performance in an electric atmosphere at the DW stadium for the semi final v Wigan, which resulted in a convincing Red Devils victory…. Saints however deservedly won the Grand Final where we entertained many clients who enjoyed a wonderful evening. We firmly believe the Grand Final is one of the Best Events in the Sporting Calendar.
Rugby League was again dominant for us as we announced our first ever Transatlantic deal!! A Proud new Partner of the Toronto Wolfpack and we cant wait to get started with them in 2020 – exciting times ahead.
A number of Betfred Super League clubs have very kindly invited us along to partner events this month and we just cannot wait now for the new season of The Betfred Super League to get under way. It is a deal that we are immensely proud to have brokered and the extension of the deal is testament to its success.
Having listened intently to how recruitment drives and pre-season plans have gone at different clubs, it will be interesting to see who finishes where this time around. We a have our thoughts and are intrigued to see how this season plays out. Our own planning for the season is full steam ahead as we look to finalise our LED and static perimeter advertising packages for the coming season. Many of our boards have already been sold but we do still have availability on Perimeter Advertising and can tailor packages to suit clients and brands of all shapes and sizes.
We started October at Blackburn Rovers for a Local Business event that was well put together by the commercial team and Forest were the visitors to Ewood Park the same evening. We continued our involvement with the National League helping Vanarama brand their Manarama National League campaign across the several TV Games on BT Sport. As ever we attend as many games possible – its always better when its LIVE! The PNE kit deal is looking an inspired piece of business with PNE flying – we attended The 32Red derby that was PNE V Leeds ended in a 1-1 draw and the comeback win v Blackburn in a proper Lancashire derby. The KCom for Hull v PNE, we will hope, was just a blip!! Rangers V Porto was a night to behold and a few days later we were at Hampden Park for the Betfred Cup semis- 2 good games have meant an Old Firm Final- the first for 10 years and Scottish Football is definitely back on the Map!!
FA Cup action at Salford City & AFC Fylde proved the Cup is well and truly alive.
We were delighted to agree an extension to our Official LED Perimeter Advertising Agency deal wIth England Netball after what was a vibrant NWC2019 – 30 Games + LIVE on Sky Sports in 2020 , in which England Roses are playing in the Nations Cup – The feel good factor surrounding the sport and amongst the clients that were visible on the perimeter boards, will undoubtedly continue on into the Vitality Netball Super League season, commencing on Saturday, 22nd February. There are a handful of Advertising packages still available as well.
We ventured in to racing territory for Bangor And Cheltenham Races and this will continue into 2020 as we look to enter new markets.
