I think there can be a few things, but with the large title sponsorships then yes I agree with you.

It works upwards from the guy who puts a few quid over the bar for the players after a game
Do you think he or she would rather not know who had done it?

And can you imagine the uproar from fans and journos that our World Cup Title Rights have been sold for a log on a tin of beans?


Sod them, it comes back to the game's leaders leading and being strong in their delivery of a bigger strategy. It's chicken and egg, you want big money but you're not going to get it without exposure. So you need to get the exposure first and if you succeed then the money will follow. If you can get a deal like the one I outlined then it is a much easier sell to approach other companies for cash deals if you can say they'll be involved with a tournament that is receiving such widespread exposure and marketing.

Aye, I don't disagree, but the negativity can be deafening at times.

 

It is quite clear now that we didn't have a long line of offers for title sponsorship last year and we went with something similar to what you stated - although I agree maybe not the best partner, but imho all the negativity ended that deal and now we end up with nothing.
