The Sport Network: Making Social Media Pay

Wed 16th Sep 2015 | Football Industry Events

The Sport Network Breakfast Seminars, in partnership with fcbusiness magazine are aimed at all football clubs across the United Kingdom.

The aim of the Breakfast Seminars is to open up debate and discussion between respected speakers and an exclusive audience of delegates representing British football clubs and the football industry at large.

The Sport Network events aim to aid sports industry professionals who are seeking to develop more profitable and sustainable businesses by tapping into a vast bank of knowledge and know-how of successful businesspeople in sport and from across a wide network of other industries.

Each Seminar will be highly proactive and participative - including confidential issue processing and problem solving with leaders of non-competing businesses.

Breakfast Seminar 1: Thurs 19th Nov 2015 – Fulham FC

Topic: Making Social Media Pay

Experts agree a lack of engaging content is hampering many teams’ efforts to generate either the buzz or the revenue that might be expected of football clubs. They give their take on:

-          Managing the challenges of Twitter and other social media.

-          Creating a buzz to attract new fans

-          Combating the efforts of rival entertainment providers

-          Where does the social media pot of gold lie?

-          Fresh thinking on community engagement


The sport-network.com promises that every delegate will leave the seminar with 10 ideas they can immediately implement at their club.

Tickets priced at £100 (early purchase prices of £80 available up to September 30th 2015)

Tickets can be purchased online HERE or by calling 0191 442 4004.
