This post is about sports and marketing. I say that so you non-sports types can bail if you like but I suggest you stick around just from a marketer’s point of view. Sports are one of those things. As a marketer you don’t have to be a fan but you have to understand how it reaches people and how people (prospects and customers) respond to marketing messages related to a true passion. If you don’t get involved then you may be missing out on some potentially lucrative market segments who might hear your message only if it’s attached to their passion for sports.
