South Asian Olympics

The South Asian Games are a biennial multinational multi-sport event held amongst the athletes from South Asia. The governing body of these games is South Asia Olympic Council (SAOC), formed in 1983. At present, OC-SAG is joined by eight members: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan & Sri Lanka.

The Pepsi Porch Will No Longer Call Citi Field Home

Citi Pepsi

One mega brand on its own generates enough fizz to drive sales and brand loyalty. But a strategic alliance of two brands usually creates a force to be reckoned with. This was the original idea behind Pepsi’s sponsoring the Mets via Citi Field in 2009. Yet, the Mets failed to play their part in creating that force. In fact, the team lost six seasons in a row. Even though the Mets got their act together for 2015, Pepsi recently announced the decision to reinvest in other ways. Citi Field and the Mets brands lost one of their greatest sponsors with...

The boys from Red Land Little League won the 2015 Little League World Series. But even before their win, they were receiving requests for appearances. After the win, they returned home and found even more requests. They’re just boys and they have enough to do with school and other regular activities. So it seemed wise to bring in professionals to help with scheduling and allowing the team and coaching staff to do what they do best. What they do best, by the way, isn’t just being great at baseball. Even before they hit that championship game, the team had made... Read More >

Here are some of the best sports PR campaigns we have seen: Peyton Manning’s Priceless Commercials "Priceless” is MasterCard’s slogan and their commercial series for roughly 15 years. They’ve had great success with it, and can apply the concept in unlimited situations. So when MasterCard put Peyton Manning as a new face for their “priceless” campaign it was. …well, priceless.

FIFA'sWeek of Crisis PR

When it wasn’t looking, international soccer took a shot right to the head, and it may be the best thing – PR-wise – that has happened to FIFA in decades.

According to the allegations, when the big money was on the line, at least one vote on the council was up for sale. The New York Times is reporting that prosecutors are alleging Jack Warner, a committee member from Trinidad and Tobago, actively shopped his ballot to the highest bidder. Accordingly, Morocco offered Warner... Read More >

Blatt Needs To Go

In the NBA, as in many other major league sports, superstar players hold a great deal of influence. It is especially true when the player happens to be considered almost as gifted in his intellectual and strategic abilities associated with basketball as he is for his athletic prowess. So when you’ve got such a player in frequent conflict with the head coach about strategy, you can guess who the winner will be. You can also guess the winner when your star player refuses to run plays as the coach calls them. That’s a serious problem. LeBron James, one of the... Read More >
