"There aren't any precise studies showing what sponsorship is worth, but the rule of thumb is putting $1,000 behind a sports event will generate the same exposure as $10,000 in advertising." - Wall Street Journal
Manrique Group is a sports entertainment and media agency operating out of Downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Established in 1998, this operation took its roots with our founder, Denny Manrique, negotiating a damn good radio deal. A handful of loyal clients and a couple thousand partnership contract deals later, Manrique Group has grown into a dynamic enterprise in the sport sponsorship space.
Sports, specifically sport sponsorship, is a ‘people-driven’ business. Every action and interaction that occurs in sports is centered around a collective understanding and mutual passion for the game. That emotional intensity -- enthusiasm -- that fans show up with each and every game is exactly why organizations are willing to pay top dollar to associate their brand with that experience. So if your agency isn’t showing up with that same fire to work for you and your brand every day of the week (and sometimes on Sundays), what potential have you been limiting with your sports marketing dollars?
Over the last 19 years in the industry, Manrique Group has scaled to meet the high power demands of an evolving industry. We have maintained a relentless commitment to delivering clients unmatched service and individual attention. The average client-agency relationship tenure for sports marketing is less than two years. Only a select few agencies in the international sports marketing space can say they’ve kept a client for a decade, but, far fewer agencies can maintain that they’ve been there and done that...two times over.
