What Goes Behind A Football Match?

A lot of people watch football for the sake of watching the players do their thing and show off their skill. Most people watch for purposes of entertainment and to push time. Only a handful think about what goes towards what it takes to make a football match possible.

Hosting a football match takes a lot of dedication and sleepless nights for some of the corporate team members. It is very similar to hosting an event where you have to ensure that all things are in place a few days before the day of the event. Just as well in football, a myriad strategies need to be thought up and implemented to ensure that the match is successfully hosted without any glitches. Things that need to be considered with high regards is the form of the pitch, especially if the players will not be playing on a plastic turf.

A Synthetic turf is of less maintenance, less cost and it is much more reliable than natural turfs. Their characteristics are very similar to natural grass and can take much more beating than natural turfs. The downfall about natural turfs is that they rely highly on weather conditions of the preceding days and as it is, weather is an unpredictable force of nature. Furthermore, natural turfs can only take a number of hours of abuse per week whereas its counterpart can take up game time consecutive days of the week.

Apart from the actual turf there is another point that needs to be taken into consideration for the safety of the spectators and that is the prediction of the number of people that will attend the match. This is guided by the monitoring of pre-sold ticket sales. Prior to that happening, the marketing team has to sit together and decide on the best strategies to utilise to ensure that tickets sell-out days before the event. This would be media announcements, adverts on traditional media and digital media. Not to miss social media marketing (SMM) which is sure way of driving sales.

Media and advertising gurus then also have to decide on where to place ads to best reach the desired market. For them to know that, they need to use research using tools such as LSM’s (living standards measurements) to determine what media the target market consumes at any given time.

Furthermore, there should be food and beverages that have to be decided on. That includes the selection of caterers based on how reliable they have been in the past, their brand credibility, and so on.
