Symbiotic SunSense

Securing the ‘partnering’ relationship between Australia’s leading sun cream brand and a leading women’s cycling team – SunSport Velo, was a logical pairing this Year. I purposefully use the word ‘partnering’ as it is no longer the norm that investors respond to begging bowls each season but seek, and should rightly do so, some form of return. Our lead sponsor, also secured by ACROBAT | FCSM,  in Brother UK, keeps the Team’s Management on its toes with reviews and feedback against expectations at predetermined intervals.

There might have been a tendency by the girls to splash on the lotion and sunbathe, but that would infact conflict with the brand ethics of a Company dedicated to alerting people to the harm of the sun’s rays. It only promotes Factor 50 sprays and creams with the more appropriate message of such as: “We’re wearing @SunSenseUK  Sport today to keep our skin protected; We love to use @SunSenseUK to keep our skin protected from harmful UV rays; We use @SunSenseUK Sport to stay protected!”. We need to manage brand credentials in any relationship and sponsorship in what must be a symbiotic ‘Win-Win’ for satisfaction and longevity, between Team and Sponsor.

I used the Sport Mist Spray on my holidays and have to say it is the best protection, that I’ve ever applied. Will buy more before any future trips where I might need to be covered from https://www.crawfordhealthcare.com/skincare/sunsense/sport-mist/. The SunSense Sport range is ideal for outdoor sports enthusiasts looking for high a high level of protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.Tested to stringent Australian standards SunSense Sports range comes in two forms, SunSense Sports Gel and SunSense Sport Mist, both offer SPF 50 broad-spectrum protection.  For anyone further interested in this critical subject matter and implications in the sports sector, see: http://www.sunsense.co.uk/blog/2017/the-ultimate-guide-to-sun-protection-for-outdoor-sports.aspx

There remains more opportunities to partner with SunSport Velo. From localised campaigns in different geographical locations to 4M on ITV4 with potential metrics to 90+M on social media penetration worldwide. There’s something for all budgets.

Brother leads the way

Always most satisfying when we help a sporting client, to achieve success in its sponsorship and partnering aspirations.  Infact that’s what we do – creating opportunities for clients and partners to secure return on investment (ROI) and/or corporate social responsibility goals (ROO).

The latest surrounds our work with SunSport Velo Women’s Cycling Team.  The press release from the Company in question says it all and is repeated below:

BROTHER UK ANNOUNCES SPONSORSHIP OF SUNSPORT VELO WOMEN’S RACE TEAM

Brother UK has announced it is to sponsor the SunSport Velo Women’s Race Team for the 2017 season.

The News is the latest in a series of partnerships for the global provider of specialist solutions, which this Year saw the company confirmed as the official results, printing and imaging partner of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, Aviva Women’s Tour and Tour of Britain.

SunSport Velo (SSV) Women’s Race Team is a collaboration between SunSport Coaching and Velo Espresso, building a professional female cycling team based in Manchester.

SSV provides a 360 degree support to its riders – not only equipment and rides, but nutrition, coaching, skills, performance and opportunities for success at a national level.  A corollary aim is to raise the profile of women’s cycling in the UK and give back to the cycling community.  SunSport Velo is also looking to engage with families and children seeking to enter the sport and has some funding applications in the pipeline.

Following on from phenomenal success last season, SunSport Velo is, with the support of Brother UK, looking forward to building on this in the 2017 season with an elite squad up to 12 riders.

Speaking on the announcement Stuart Percival, Director and Head Coach at SunSport Velo comments: “We are looking forward to working alongside Brother UK in the 2017 cycling season.  We have a super enthusiastic and experienced team so we feel we can also add value to Brother Cycling over the coming months and vice versa.”

Phil Jones MBE, Managing Director of Brother UK, added: “Last year saw the team secure some impressive accolades throughout the season including beating Dame Sarah Storey’s Podium Ambition team in the Matrix Fitness GP Series. “

“Its ambitions for the 2017 season are to be admired and we’re delighted to be able to support them in their drive.  The partnership reflects a portfolio of sponsorships the business has invested in, backing the domestic sport at all levels. It fits perfectly with our own business ethos which is all about teamwork, partnership and results.”

As well as a stable of road racing, the 2017 season will include track and cyclo-cross races plus an aspiration to again ride the elite races within the UK and a foreign programme including a European stage race. The Club has an excellent network of contacts at a level that will pave the way into many of these events.

Director, Adrian Stores, worked with Phil Jones MBE to make this agreement come to fruition.  We hope that this massive boost from a household brand in cycling will lead to other sponsors and partners following suit, once they appreciate the media coverage including TV and ability to secure both ROI and ROO.  Enquiries to: sunsportvelo@acrobatfcsm.com
