2005 Champions League Final Liverpool Fans Sponsor? liverpool video
Atatürk Cup In order to use the facility more often and familiarize it with the European Football fans, a Cup organization in the mid-season sounds like a good idea. Many European teams choose Turkey for their mid-season preparation. Atatürk Cup may be played between 3 big European clubs and the last champion of the Turkish League. Mid-season need some action and Antalya needs some competition!
Fortis Cup Final Four 2008- 2009 FA Cup has been played at the new Wembley Stadium and it also inspired us. Olympic Park may host the best four teams of the Fortic Cup of that year. Football fans may turn the park into a football festival for the whole weekend. Such an event should attract sponsors and spectators, also increase the TV revenues. The Final may be played during the 19th of May Youth and Sports Holiday, in order to attract more people and create a joyful atmosphere. American National Football Leauge organizes the Super Bowl as a family event. The same model can be applied and the size of the event may be expanded.
Academia League English youngsters have had the privilege to play their tournament at the Old Trafford Stadium this year. With the support of the Turkish Football Federation Education department and a sponsor, Turkish youngsters may experience the same excitement at the AOS. Such a league would be very entertaining for the children and create a family size event. It would be a good idea to schedule the final on mother’s or father’s day.
Conclusion New Marketing Proposals Marketing Committee Improving the Transportation Facilities Sports Academy Champions League Final 2005 Museum at the AOS Hosting National & International Football Tournaments Alternat ive Events Meetings and Gatherings Key Conclusions: Any kind of a marketing plan for the AOS requires high amount of financial investment and long period of time. Proposals like small event organizations may not be enough for a sufficient outcome, but may only save the day. The government shall begin to work on a huge and efficient marketing plan for the AOS.
