LONDON (20th FEBRUARY 2023) - Sport Industry Group (SIG) is delighted to announce a new multi-year partnership with New York-based social commerce company FEVO, which includes headline sponsorship of the FEVO Sport Industry Awards.
Founded in 2016, FEVO currently works with more than 700 blue-chip brands in North American sports and live events, seamlessly integrating with brands and rightsholders to turn every e-commerce site into a social destination.
Existing FEVO clients include the New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Bucks, with an expansion into the UK sporting landscape set to roll out in 2023.
In addition to serving as the headline partner of the FEVO Sport Industry Awards, FEVO will act as the presenting partner of Event of the Year, one of the highest-profile award categories.
Previous winners of the prestigious award have included The Hundred, The Virtual 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon, the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 and the 2018 Ryder Cup.
Nick Keller, SIG chairman, said, “For many organisations within sport, the SIG platform is the place where connections are made and the very best of our industry is celebrated.
“As such, we’re immensely proud that such a successful US company has chosen SIG as its partner in the UK, with the ambition of using the Awards as the entry point into a vibrant and global industry.
“FEVO’s technology will be a gamechanger for sports organisations and is set to revolutionise the way that tickets to sports and entertainment events are sold in this country. More importantly it is a platform that inherently grows sports accessibility, footprint and drives fan community engagement."
“It’s a privilege and an honour to be working with Sport Industry Group on this event,” added Ari Daie, FEVO founder, CEO and president.
“Our mission is to help the world’s biggest brands — sports or otherwise — adapt to the ever-changing habits of their fans, and we rely on the best partners in the world to help us do that.
“Given our plans to launch our product in the UK later this year, the opportunity to work with Nick and the Sport Industry Group was a perfect fit. No one lives closer to the fans, clubs and organisations that carry the torch for this country’s storied sporting legacy, and we look forward to sharing a long and fruitful partnership with them.”
The FEVO Sport Industry Awards 2023 will take place 27th April 2023 at Evolution London.
