In nearly all sectors of all markets there is intense competition among companies and brands. Often there is little differential between products in terms of quality, content or price. To make a brand stand out from the crowd a sponsor can use sport to create a unique position in the mind of the consumer.
Media & Exposure
Typically sponsors wish to support activities that are enjoyable and memorable for audiences and participants, and provide occasions to build brand value.
