Players - Reach local sportsmen at their most engaged

Provided by Newsquest Media Sales
Reach engaged and loyal local media fans - young sportsmen - via the sports sections of Newsquest local media brands.

Tell us about the Opportunity / What is it?

Target 'Players' at their most engaged, in a relatively brand-free environment. 18-34 year old males who play local team sports are regular readers of local media. The reason? Unique content they say they cannot get anywhere else. Local sport (especially football) results, league tables, match reports - their name in print, relevant information to them, and an element of local fame. Newsquest Media Sales have invested significantly in researching these Players. We know their characteristics, their behaviour, & how they interact with their local media brand.

What is the Marketing Objective?

Excellent opportunity to build brand awareness with a male dominated audience.

How does it work?

Place brand advertising within Newsquest sports sections, across our portfolio. Achieve brand stand-out - these are traditionally local advertising environments so national brands can immediately cut-through. Hit a loyal and regular audience - 66% of Players read the sports sections for local sport news, of those 93% do so regularly Players ALWAYS read sport, are TWICE as likely to turn to sport first, & TWICE as likely to read it longer than average readers

Who's used it in the past?

We ran a case study test of our Players hypothesis with Alfa Romeo, on the launch of their Mito model, aimed directly at this group. Post campaign awareness amongst Players went up considerably for: Alfa Romeo / Mito / Local dealership We are happy to share this, and all of our other Players research to illustrate the power of the opportunity.
