5 Soccer Promotions for After the World Cup
So, it's been two months since I last blogged. Things have been busy here at Promo Marketing (and not just because we are watching World Cup games on our lunch breaks). The Supplier Excellence Awards will be announced soon; we're working on more custom videos; and we are preparing for the 2015 Buyer's Guide (yes, already).
I wanted to take a minute today to highlight the international promotional product frenzy that is The World Cup. Adweek reported that more Americans like soccer than NASCAR. Here's what to sell to those "football" fans.
There's been a hullabaloo about the Team USA jersey. They weren't made in the U.S. They look like popsicles. Here's a red, white and blue alternative from Augusta Sportswear.
Socks & Shin Guards
Socks and shin guards are as much part of the game as the jerseys. Pair these socks from One Stop Inc. with these shin guards from Bomark Sportswear to keep players safe and stylish on the field.
Cleats may be a personal decision on the local team front, but your client can provide shoe bags like this one from FIEL—Fairdeal Import & Export Ltd.
Adidas may sponsor the game balls in The World Cup, but your client can sponsor them for local sports teams. Try this custom ball from 365 Wholesale.
The World Cup gives out a host of awards other than the actual cup. Here's a soccer-themed award from Design Your Recognition for you to sell to teams or companies hosting soccer tournaments.
