There’s not a lot we don’t know about sports. With 55 years’ combined experience in marketing and operations, we’ve worked with some of the biggest sports brands in the world, from Nike to Adidas, EA Sports to both the NFL and NBA.
But our love of sport runs deeper than that. In our free time, we’ll be found supporting our local teams, and we never miss the big games on TV. In fact, we are firm believers that sport is the thread that ties families, generations and whole communities together.
So who better to connect amateur and youth teams and venues with major advertisers? At smashAdz, we use our existing relationships with big brands to help them connect with local communities, funding sports at a grassroots level and finding a whole new audience in the process.
