The need is out there... The huge demand for this product represents a massive opportunity to not only positively change lives through physical activity but also to connect to a large market in a positive way. The situation 48% of Londoners are in-active. 33% of children in London are obese or overweight. Lack of information is one of the biggest barriers to sport participation. The potential 63% (5.1m) of Londoners are interested in doing more activity (huge potential market).

How we differ from Spogo.co.uk Spogo.co.uk is a project funded by Sport England and managed by UK Active (formerly the FIA). It is an attempt to be a national activity finder allowing users to find and book sessions through the site. Spogo is commercially driven and needs to generate income in order to continue. As of April 2013, Get Active London had roughly double the amount of London listings compared to Spogo.co.uk Key differences about getactivelondon.com London only listings allow ability to build meaningful brand in London. Embedded across Local Authorities meaning greater market penetration with the benefit of a far larger administration team. Only our site offers Activity information down to time/date detail. 90% of customers want this level of detailed information. Very strong online presence by comparison with Spogo meaning greater market presence in London and solid platform upon which to build. Our non-profit status gives more room for better CSR opportunities and genuine ability to invest in growing participation rates. Benefit of London 2012 hype given the location. Although London based, the IT behind our system is easily replicable and scalable to other parts of the nation/continent
Benefits Fantastic and poignant CSR opportunity highlighting commitment to social improvement through physical activity. Great PR opportunities to showcase commitment to health, grassroots sport and elite performance development. Engage hard to reach 18 – 24 market through sport / physical activity. Build consumer relationships specific to London. Represent the only London based activity finder and maintain contact with individuals for years to come. Build an on-going relationship and association with PRO-ACTIVE London – the premier sports development agency in London responsible for getting millions of people into physical activity.

Carol Isherwood OBE - Regional Manager National Game (London), The FA Group "Both in my role as London Regional Manager with the FA and as Chair of the London NGB forum, I see Get Active London as a crucial new resource when trying to engage and inform new and existing participants across London. The website is a great tool to have and gives all sports clubs and NGB's a platform to promote their opportunities to a new and increasingly online audience. With continued investment, I feel that Get Active London will play a key role in increasing sport participation in London particularly among those participants who previously may have struggled to find the relevant information to get them started.
