Clients include FIFA, FIBA, Sport Ireland and UEFA and we have worked on their behalf this year in Botswana, Estonia, Ireland, Kuwait, Latvia, Sri Lanka and Switzerland.
In our Events work we help forward-thinking rights holders become more commercially successful, maximising the value of their rights, creating new assets and revenue streams and finding efficiencies in their operations. Clients include Premiership, League of Ireland, Serie A and La Liga clubs for whom we organize pre-season friendly tournaments.
Through our extensive Sponsorship network – from rights owners to sponsors, governing bodies, major event organisers, teams and consortia – we are able to help connect capital to opportunity. We help clients develop new business and commercial partnerships. Clients include Dublin City Council and the RDS.
