Whether a professional football game with 60,000 fans in attendance or a nostalgia-filled college basketball game, sporting events are an easy way to excite and entertain your clients in even the harshest of weather conditions. In addition to mixing business with pleasure, sporting events help facilitate meaningful conversation, boost face time and leave a lasting impression that will help you remain relevant throughout the year.

However, with numerous teams, tournaments and playoffs all taking place at once, it’s difficult to track down what games will resonate best with your target audience.  To help sort through the chaos and ensure your stand out against the competition, brush up on the variety of sporting events that will help you drive sales pipeline and score big in the new year.
