We have been appointed to support the first Netball Manchester Live between Manchester Thunder and Yorkshire Jets at Manchester Arena in April.
The game, which is aiming to break the record for the highest attended domestic netball match ever held in the UK, will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. The record is currently held by Netball London Live which attracted 6,033 people last March.
Waverley has worked with the organisers to create the branding for the event, including the logo, promotional materials and adverts. These are now on show across Manchester City Centre promoting the event and encouraging people to buy tickets.
The work has been led by Stephen Naylor, the firm’s Director, who said it was an exciting opportunity to be part of the major sporting event:
“Waverley is delighted to be working with the organisers of Netball Manchester Live to support their promotion of the event with branding materials ranging from online imagery to 12-metre-wide adverts in Manchester City Centre.”
“It promises to be one of the most exciting sporting events in the North of England this year – a Roses battle between the North West and Yorkshire and between the North and South for the highest attended domestic netball match ever.”
We already work to support both Manchester Thunder and Yorkshire Jets with their marketing and communications activity.
Debbie Hallas, Franchise Director of Manchester Thunder and lead organiser for Netball Manchester Live, said:
“With Waverley already a key partner to us at Manchester Thunder, we had no doubts about appointing Stephen and his team to support Netball Manchester Live. They have had a key role in developing the brand and we look forward to working with them to promote the event across Manchester, the North West and Yorkshire in the next few months.”
