MSM Merchandise Price List

The NFL Network started an interesting series back in 2011 called NFL 100. The network polled NFL players and asked them to rank the 100 best players in the league. This year, two Green Bay Packers players ranked in the top ten. Aaron Rodgers was ranked third, and Mayfield Sports Marketing partner Davante Adams was ranked sixth. Additionally, our partners Aaron Jones (30) Jaire Alexander (41) were voted onto the list by their peers.

In addition to current Packers, we at Mayfield Sports Marketing partner with Packers’ legends. Many of these players are Super Bowl XXXI Champions and were top players in the NFL during their careers. As we looked at the NFL 100 list this year, we inserted the Super Bowl XXXI players who partnered with us using stats from the best season of their careers.

Dorsey Levens- 1997 Season: NFL 100 Rank: 26

 

Dorsey Levens remains an immensely popular Green Bay Packers legend. In 1997, Levens had one of the most productive seasons in the history of Packers running backs with over 1,800 all-purpose yards. In this year’s NFL 100, the 26th ranked player was Cleveland’s, Nick Chubb. While many may believe this is too high to rank Levens, consider how his numbers in 1997 compared to Chubb’s in 2020.

Dorsey Levens Nick Chubb
Rushing Attempts 329 190
Rushing Yards 1,435 1,067
Rushing Yards per Game 89.7 88.9
Rushing Touchdowns 7 12
Receptions 53 16
Receiving Yards 370 150
Receiving Touchdowns 5 0
Catch Percentage 79.1% 88.9%
Total Yards 1,805 1,117

It should be noted that Chubb played 12 games in 2020 whereas Levens played 16 in 1997. Nevertheless, Levens’ production still should have placed him higher than Chubb on this list.

Antonio Freeman- 1998 Season: NFL 100 Rank: 53

Between 1997 and 1999, Antonio Freeman put up three straight 1,000 yard seasons. In the middle of this run, his 1998 season, Freeman put up one of the best receiving seasons in Packers history. That year, in 15 games, Freeman led the NFL in both receiving yards and receiving yards per game. His production would have been good enough in 2020 to supplant Minnesota rookie Justin Jefferson for 53rd on the NFL 100 list.

Antonio Freeman Justin Jefferson
Receptions 84 88
Receiving Yards 1,424 1,400
Touchdowns 14 7
Receiving Yards per Game 94.9 87.5
Catch Percentage 54.9% 70.4%

As seen above, Freeman had more yards, yards per game, and touchdowns in one less game than Jefferson played in 2020. Had Freeman played in the 16th game, he surely would have had more receptions too. Jefferson is a young star on the rise. However, if 1998 Antonio Freeman had been in the NFL last year, he would have been ranked higher than the Vikings’ rookie.

Gilbert Brown- 1996 Season: NFL 100 Rank: 78

The “Gravedigger” is one of the most iconic Packers players in recent memory. A force on the defensive line, he did not always need to rack up the stats to make an impact. His massive frame plugged up holes disallowing running backs from making big gains. His best season came in 1996 when he helped the Packers win Super Bowl XXXI.

During that season, Gilbert recorded a single sack. Research of the number of tackles he recorded that season did not render any results. However, his dominance in stuffing runners would have led him to rank 78th on the list. Of special note, Gilbert’s plugging of running lanes helped the Packers hold Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin to just 42 rushing yards in the Super Bowl.

Santana Dotson- 1997 Season: NFL 100 Rank: 63

Unlike the lost stats for Gilbert Brown’s 1996 season, the stats for Santana Dotson’s 1997 campaign are readily available. 1997 was, arguably, his best for the Green Bay Packers. Though he did not make the Pro Bowl that season, his numbers in many ways surpass those of Fletcher Cox. Cox has been named to the Pro Bowl six years in a row.

Santana Dotson Fletcher Cox
Tackles 71 41
Sacks 5.5 6.5
Forced Fumbles 2 1
Fumbles Recovered 0 0

The signing of Dotson in 1996 is one of the most underrated free-agent signings in Packers history. Additionally, he is one of the most underappreciated players from that Super Bowl team. As seen by his 1997 numbers, he was an absolute monster on the defensive line.

Desmond Howard- 1996 Season: NFL 100 Rank: 100

This may be a bit of a stretch. After all, no one on the NFL 100 is a punt or kick returner by trade. This is why we have put Desmond Howard at the 100th rank on the list. 

That being said, if there was an NFL 100 list in 1997, the year after Howard’s astounding season with the Packers, he surely would have been on it. 1996 was the only full season in which Howard played with the Packers. During that campaign, he led the NFL in the following categories:

Punt Returns 58
Punt Return Yards 875
Touchdowns 3
Yards per Return 15.1

After dominating special teams all season, Howard did it again in the Super Bowl. In the Packers’ victory over the Patriots, Howard gained 154 kick return yards, returned a punt 90 yards (a record at that point), and became the first special teams player to be named Super Bowl MVP.

The Green Bay Packers have a plethora of talent on their team this year. Many players who would be locks for other team’s rosters may end up getting cut from the Packers’ final roster. Of the players who are locks, Packers Wide Receivers Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, two players whom we at Mayfield Sports have worked with in the past, are in an interesting competition. Both players are entering contract seasons. Additionally, both are candidates for the Packers’ second wide receiver position.

Of course, Davante Adams is the Packers’ number one wide receiver. After him, though, there is a battle for which player will take the second guaranteed starting spot. Both Lazard and Valdes-Scantling (MVS) had opportunities to be the second starter last season. Both had some fantastic games, but also had their separate struggles. Coming into camp, there was no clear-cut number two option at wide receiver. Undoubtedly, however, it will be one of these two players.

Allen Lazard and MVS in 2020

The decision of which of the two players will start at the second wide receiver position is very difficult. Each brings unique strengths to the offense. The question is which one is better or has the most potential to be a number two option. What complicates it further is that their stats from last season do not lend much help.

Lazard MVS
Games 10 16
Receptions 33 33
Yards 451 690
Touchdowns 3 6
Catch % 71.7 % 52.4 %
Drop % 10.9 % 11.1 %
Yards/Game 45.1 43.1
Yards/Rec. 13.7 20.9

From the stats above, it would appear that MVS had a much better season than Allen Lazard. However, it should be taken into consideration that Lazard missed six games due to a core muscle injury that required surgery. Additionally, he came back midseason and was still hampered by the injury. Taking that into consideration, one would assume that had the two played the same amount of games, it would have been Lazard with better statistics. After all, Lazard had a higher catch percentage and lower drop rate than MVS. That being said, “what ifs” do not help answer the question.

The 2020 Playoffs

The Green Bay Packers played two playoff games last season. As the number one seed, they were able to sit out of the Wild Card round before facing the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round. Here is how MVS and Lazard compared in that game:

Player Receptions Yards Touchdowns
MVS 4 33 0
Lazard 4 96 1

After defeating the Rams, the Packers hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship. Again, here is how the two receivers faired in that contest:

Player Receptions Yards Touchdowns
MVS 4 115 1
Lazard 3 62 0

Based on these games, the two receivers combined for roughly the same stats. In other words, they were equally productive. Clearly, the answer to the question must come from training camp and preseason games.

The 2021 Preseason

As head coach Matt LaFleur stated, no player that he deems valuable to the Packers’ preparation from Week One of the regular season will play a snap of any preseason games. That means that neither MVS nor Allen Lazard will be on the field in any of the team’s remaining preseason games. The answer to our question of who will be the number two receiver, then, will be determined in training camp.

The Case for Allen Lazard

The case for Allen Lazard to be the team’s number two wide receiver is that he is a reliable target. He had a 71.7% catch percentage last season, which was second on the team (behind Davante Adams). Additionally, Aaron Rodgers had a 124.5 passer rating when targeting Lazard. By comparison, he had a 109.9 passer rating when targeting MVS.

Lazard showcased his potential last season in the game in which he actually injured his core. Against the Saints in Week Three, Lazard had six receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown. For a brief moment, it appeared as if he had locked up the second receiver position for good.

The Case for MVS

Few wide receivers in the NFL last season were criticized as much as MVS was. That being said, few wide receivers are as fast as MVS is. While the drops were a problem last season, reports from training camp state that he is using his body less to catch passes, a technique that led to drops last season. If MVS can cut those dropped passes in half, the Packers will have a second 1,000 receiver on the team.

The reason why MVS put up the numbers he did was because of his speed. He is a lethal downfield weapon who can blow by most defenders. His 20.9 yards per reception last season led not only the Packers, but the entire NFL.

Conclusion

There is no clear answer to this question, and with limited eyes on the practice field it will be difficult to guess what Matt LaFleur is going to do. One thing is for sure, though: both players are highly qualified and will be key contributors to the Packers’ 2021 season, and hopefully their Super Bowl run.

If you’re looking for a way to increase sales and improve overall brand awareness, prominent sports figures are attractive options. Their athletic prowess gives them instant credibility to any product, particularly anything related to those geared towards athletes. With that being said, their celebrity alone will influence fans to want to be like them and be associated with the same products or services. Your business would most likely benefit from this association, and this is true whether it’s a big name or not and for pretty much any type of product, service, or business. 

Increased Sales

While the actual influence celebrity athletes have regarding advertising is a matter of debate, a Harvard University professor and Barclays Capital conducted a study that indicated sales growth compared to their previous numbers and overall placement in the market as well. The study showed an average increase of around 4%, with more considerable gains from those with higher status. Fans of a particular team or specific athlete will be more inclined to purchase a product or use a service endorsed by them. 

Increased Awareness 

One key aspect of growing your brand is making people aware of your brand. Attaching a local or national athlete quickly raises awareness for anyone who’s a fan of that individual or the team for which they play. Once people are aware of your brand’s products or services, they would be more likely to purchase from you. A potential customer’s favorable feelings towards the celebrity athlete can and often will translate to your company. Aaron Rodger's State Farm commercials and Brett Favre's Wrangler commercials are just a couple of examples. 

Social media promotion by an athlete can increase that awareness even more. According to Opendorse, athletes on social media drive 4.8 times the engagement of media accounts, 3.6 times the engagement of league accounts, 2.4 times the engagement of team accounts, and 2.1 times the engagement of influencer accounts. It just goes to show how associating your brand with an athlete can push awareness and engagement through the roof. 

Utilize Local Celebrity Athletes

Keep it local, and consider using a celebrity athlete from your home team. A small business that uses a local athlete of any profile brings much-wanted attention and awareness to your brand and business. For example, in Green Bay or anywhere in the state of Wisconsin, having any member of the Green Bay Packers at your event or endorsing your product will generate interest and get more eyes on you. Sticking to someone who is known and admired or associated with a known and admired team, locally and with your target market, pays huge dividends. 

Ways to Include Celebrity Athletes

Once you’ve decided to utilize a celebrity athlete to help market your product or service, you need to know how to utilize a celebrity athlete. There are various ways to do so, and whichever way you choose will depend on what’s the best fit for your business and your products or services. The first way would be to have them endorse your brand. An endorsement could be digital, radio, print, television, etc., advertising depending on where you’re most likely to find your target market. 

If you have an event coming up, having a celebrity appearance will bring more attention and most likely increase attendance. You can add an autograph signing session as part of your event or even have the signing be the event that you’re hosting. Either way, associating the celebrity athlete with your brand is the key. You can also sponsor a celebrity athlete to do a motivational speech for a local school or organization. Approaching your relationship this way gives the double whammy of giving back to the community as well as associating you with the athlete.

Mayfield Sports Marketing is a leading sports marketing agency and speaker bureau. Whether your company is small or large, our team can search our network of current and retired celebrity athletes available based on appearance fees, team, location, or sport. With access to hundreds of athletes available for corporate appearances, keynote or motivational speeches, and product endorsements, we work within your budget to match your goals with an athlete’s appearance.

Even though there won’t be a physical Pro Bowl game played this year, the honor for being selected as a 2021 Pro Bowlers does not change. Athletes are chosen for the Pro Bowl by coaches, players, and fans, with each contingent making up one-third of the vote. We here at Mayfield Sports Marketing would like to celebrate the seven of our home state Packers who were selected along with a few other players across the league.

Za’Darius Smith

After being snubbed last year, Za’Darius Smith gets the selection he rightfully deserves for the 2021 Pro Bowl. After 15 games this season, Smith is tied for third in the NFL with 12.5 sacks and tied for fifth in tackles for loss as well as 34 solo tackles and 16 assists. Over his two seasons with the Packers, Smith has garnered 26 sacks, the first Packer to have 11+ sacks in back to back seasons since Aaron Kampman accomplished the feat in 2006.

NFL Network’s pre-season list of the top 100 players in the NFL featured Smith at number 48. USA Today’s touchdown wire had him ranked as the number one edge defender, and Pete Prisco of CBS Sports had Smith as number 28 overall of all NFL players.

Davante Adams

For an amazing fourth consecutive year, Davante Adams has been selected to the 2021 Pro Bowl. With separation ability second to none with a lightning-fast release and rapid footwork along with an uncanny ability to make contested catches deep down the field, Adams has placed himself among the elite receivers not just of this season but in history. He finished the season with 115 catches and 18 touchdown receptions, only the third ever to exceed 100 catches and 16 touchdown receptions in a single season. 

While all three Packer’s single-season receiving records were in range going into the last game, Adams was able to break the receptions record of 112 previously held by Sterling Sharpe in 1993. He tied the receiving touchdowns record, also set by Sterling Sharpe in 1994. He came up just shy of Jordy Nelson’s reception yards record of 1519 yards set in 2014. Adams ended the season with 1374 yards. 

The fact that he broke one record, tied another, and got so close to another is made even more incredible by the fact he missed nearly three full games to injury. There are no guarantees, of course, but it would certainly seem very likely that all three records would have fallen if Adams had a full season to work, but it’s an amazing feat nonetheless. 

Jaire Alexander

If you have been watching the Packers closely, you know that Jaire Alexander is a star. Becoming widely-known as a shutdown corner, currently ranked number two by Pro Football Focus, Alexander is getting the attention of opposing quarterbacks. Last season, Alexander was targeted 6.9 times per game. This year that number dipped to about 5.5 targets per game. After allowing a quarterback rating of only 85.8 last year, he has improved that number to 71.3 this year. 

David Bakhtiari

Currently sitting at number two on Pro Football Focus’s ranking of offensive tackles, David Bakhtiari has been selected to his third pro bowl. Widely regarded as one of the league's best tackles in the game, Bakhtiari has continued to build upon those accolades. A big reason for the Packers’ success this season has stemmed from the stellar protection of future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. David Bakhtiari, as the blindside tackle, is a huge reason for that. Unfortunately, after a freak injury at a non-contact practice, the Packers will be forced to make their Super Bowl run without Bakhtiari, putting a damper on their chances. 

Elgton Jenkins

Versatility. That is Elgton Jenkins to an absolute T. Officially, he’s a left guard, but he possesses the scarce ability to not only play anywhere on the line but excel at all three positions. This year has seen him play guard, tackle, and center while only allowing a single sack overall. Usually, an offensive lineman is played on a single position, occasionally playing their position on the other side of the line, not so with Jenkins, who will move around to cover any position based on injury and those available to fill in. When center Corey Lindsey was injured, Jenkins moved to that spot to more easily fill the guard position. And again, Jenkins excelled. 

Aaron Jones

Currently sitting fourth in rushing yards, twelfth in rushing touchdowns, and first on runs of 40 plus yards, Aaron Jones was selected to his first-ever Pro Bowl after many feeling that he was snubbed last year. With one game remaining, he has accrued eight rushing touchdowns this season. If he can get two more, he’ll become only the second Packer ever, Jim Taylor the other, with consecutive seasons with double-digit touchdowns and over 1,000 rushing yards. 

Aaron Rodgers

In a Hall of Fame career with many amazing seasons, Aaron Rodgers is putting together one of the best in 2020, comparable only to his MVP season in 2011. A front runner to win the MVP again this year was selected to his ninth Pro Bowl for 2021, tying the Packers record for Pro Bowl selections. Currently, he sits sixth in passing yards, second in completion percentage, first in quarterback rating, first in touchdown to interception rating with an incredible 8.8 TDs per interception thrown, first in touchdown passes, and first in interception percentage. 

Dalvin Cook - Vikings

After leading the fan voting for the top NFC running back, Dalvin Cook will return to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year. Cook is currently second in the NFL in rushing yards and tenth among RBs for yards per carry. He’s also leading the league in yards from scrimmage, rushes for first downs, and tied for the lead for rushing touchdowns. 

Alvin Kamara - Saints

In his fourth season, Alvin Kamara has again been selected to the Pro Bowl, making a Pro Bowl nod for each season he’s been in the league. On Christmas Day, Kamara rushed for 155 yards and tied the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns in a single game with six, a record established and never touched in 91 years. 

Darius Leonard - Colts

Despite a historic rookie season in 2018, Darius Leonard did not make the Pro Bowl that year. He has, however, been selected the past two years. Currently, he is sitting tied for ninth in the league in tackles. Displaying an incredible knack for making game-changing impact plays, look for Leonard to make many more Pro Bowls to come. 

Xavian Howard - Dolphins

Xavian Howard is leading the league in passes defended and interceptions and in contention for Defensive Player of the Year. Being selected to his second Pro Bowl, the other being at the conclusion of the 2018 season, he’s one of the best players on one of the top defenses this year. He needs one more interception to tie the franchise record set in 1967.

Xavien Howard is in the Defensive Player of the Year discussion and a big game against K.C. will really help.

Xavien Howard, Miami Dolphins

Xavien Howard, Miami Dolphins

For the 2nd time this season, Xavien Howard will enter a game with a chance to get five interceptions in five games but this time its against K.C.

If Howard is going to bring a Defensive MVP award home to the Miami Dolphins, he will need to make a statement on Sunday against the Chiefs. Howard is on another four game interception streak. While he is getting national MVP attention, he still isn’t turning enough heads. Yet.

Tomorrow, Howard will have a shot at his 9th interception on the season. If the Miami Dolphins can beat the Chiefs and Howard can shutdown whoever he is covering, that national narrative is going to get a big wake up call.

Howard is clearly having the best year of his career but until the Dolphins become real contenders they won’t earn the respect around the league. That is just how it goes. Teams that are bad need to have a dominating player on the field that clearly stands out. In the L.A., the Rams have Aaron Donaldson who has won the award two of the last three years. Last year it was Stephon Gilmore.

The last Miami Dolphins to win the award was way back in 2006 when Jason Taylor took the award. Could Howard become the fourth player in team history to get the award. Dick Anderson and Doug Betters also took home the award.

While Howard has two four-game stretches this year, he has not recorded a multi-interception game yet. Could he do that tomorrow against the best offense in the NFL?

The Game
In Week 14, the Kansas City Chiefs return to the scene of their Super Bowl LIV triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. This time they will take on the Miami Dolphins in their home stadium. The game will kick off at Noon (Arrowhead Time) and will be carried by CBS-TV — locally on KCTV/5.

With a playoff berth already in hand, a victory against Miami (or a Las Vegas Raiders loss against the Indianapolis Colts) will clinch the 11-1 Chiefs their fifth consecutive AFC West title. They’re coming off a 22-16 victory over the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday, which was their seventh straight win.

Now a game behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East at 8-4, the Dolphins need a victory to maintain their chance at the playoffs and the possibility of a division championship. Miami hasn’t won the East since 2008 — or a playoff game since 2000.
The Chiefs are led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He is now the NFL’s all-time leader in career passer rating (110.3), passing yards per game (307.6) and interception percentage (1.3%). He’s currently leading the NFL in passing yards (3,815), interception percentage (0.4%) and net yards per passing attempt (7.80). He is also regarded as the front-runner to win 2020’s NFL MVP award. It would be his second such honor in three seasons as Kansas City’s starter — and is the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

First-round rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is making his sixth start as the leader of the Dolphins offense. The former Alabama quarterback was selected fifth overall in last spring’s NFL draft, completing 63.2% of his passes for 898 yards (and seven touchdowns) through seven games this season — good for a passer rating of 99.4. He has been sacked just ten times and has yet to throw an NFL interception.

But if things go badly under center, the Dolphins have magic in their back pocket: 38-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick, now in his 16th NFL season for his eighth NFL team. He started the first six games of 2020, going 3-3 before giving way to Tagovailoa after the Dolphins’ Week 7 bye. He came in for the rookie during the fourth quarter of the Week 11 loss to the Denver Broncos — and also while Tagovailoa was out with an injury in Week 12.

Fitzpatrick may never play another snap for Miami, but Chiefs fans will never forget the Fitzmagic they saw during last season’s thrilling Dolphins victory over the New England Patriots in Week 17 — a win that paved the way for Kansas City to grab the AFC’s second seed on the way to the Super Bowl.

Sports are also accessible - we have all played and watched them, enjoyed the thrill of cheering for our favorite team, and shared a feeling of glory in their victory. The fascination is that few make it as talented star athletes for the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB - and the particular mix of dedication and talent that it takes makes for a fascinating story. If you’re aiming to inspire action in a group of people there really is no better fit than a tale of guts and glory to get everyone fired up.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Why You Should be Hiring a Sports Star?

Boosting Team Morale
Every good company out there has improving and maintaining the morale of their staff at the top of the agenda. When people are brought into the vision and values that your business has chosen, they perform a lot better consistently. They have a motivation that runs over and above things like pay structures and bonuses. And this has so many parallels with the life and performance of an elite athlete who plays for the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB.

Increasing Dedication
To succeed in the world of sports, it takes more than focus. It takes a sense of dedication to a wider goal. Athletes who have risen to the top of their game don’t get there by chance. They get there by believing in something and committing themselves to it. That means they are perfectly placed to explain this sense of a higher purpose to an audience. Speaking of dedication, athletes like Brett Favre, Desmond Howard and Davante Adams might boost your attendance at your next event!

Improving Self-Worth
There is a lot to be learned about moving forward even on a bad day or when you don’t want to, finding your inner drive and strength, keeping consistent work, and sometimes recovering from setbacks and adversity. Players such as Jerry Kramer have embodied this focus and sense of purpose and channeled it into his work to the accolade and enjoyment of millions of sports fans. What could your staff do if they were inspired to tap into the same sense of purpose?[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What Do Sports Athlete Speakers Do?

At Mayfield Sports Marketing, our sports stars are useful for a variety of reasons, including business promotions, motivational speaking, and community involvement.

Motivational Speaking
The elite sports personnel at Mayfield Sports Marketing can speak on a variety of topics, tuning their message for your sports speakers near meaudience and the particular goals you want the event to achieve. Using their sporting experience and entertaining real-world examples from their careers, they can give the audience an intimate look into the hidden world of excellence in professional sports.

Our sports athletes can aim to challenge behaviors, set new expectations, and teach the secrets of success to your guests. Every speech is designed as a catalyst for change in the lives of others - be that a big challenge, or the alteration of everyday behavior which could add up to a big result.

Perhaps your group seeks a speaker such as: Tony Dungy, Emmitt Smith or Aaron Jones. The Mayfield Sports Marketing team can source athletes and speakers by working with the athlete directly, their marketing team or agent.

Our speakers give a brand new perspective. They provide exciting and engaging examples for people to follow. They educate the audience to think about self-development and becoming the very best version of themselves. And the impact they leave in their wake can last a lifetime for those who hear them speak.

Endorsing A Product
There is so much more to the services Mayfield Sports Marketing can offer in addition to inspiring speaking engagements. Another way that our professional sports athletes can work with your business is through product endorsement.

Through the power of the connection they form with people and the public esteem that they enjoy, our athletes can give the halo effect to your products or services by sharing the impact they can have. Coming from a position of authority, tapping into this powerful influence can really give your marketing strategy a boost. When you see Packers Aaron Jones or Jaire Alexander, you may think Oakley Sunglasses. Perhaps when you watch Davante Adams play on Sunday you see those sweet Jordan Brand cleats and gloves he wears. Finally, bringing attention to brands like Wrangler, Mastercard, or Green Eagle, you think Hall of Famer Brett Favre.

You can also leverage the platforms and exposure of these stars to have your branding and messaging reach a far wider audience - people who may not have come into contact with what you do before. By positioning your product with a prominent sports figure, whom the public associate with positive values such as teamwork, dedication, and hard work, your marketing message is amplified.

People can enjoy the feeling of affiliation with those values and our athletes by using the same service or product. Endorsements have many positive benefits for your business. They help to build brand equity - we can all think of successful examples of a brand partnering with a well-known figure and going on to enjoy a new level of success.

You are also building a lasting association with great values - when people see their favorite sports star in action, they will now also think of your brand. This can help your business to stand out and gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

How To Build Your Perfect Corporate Event

Mayfield Sports Marketing can work with you to assess your needs and create an event that delivers on your aims. We work through a process which allows us to assess your needs and help you decide on the ideal way to deliver them. Whether it's a product launch, the opening of a new premises, a fundraising event for a charitable cause, or a motivational speaking engagement, we can find the right sports athlete that suits your goals.

Start off by sending a description of your event to request a quote. Then it's a simple process to start building your event:

  1. Decide what you would like the athlete to do at your event - are they giving a speech? Do they have specific things to be mentioned in them? Would you like them to interact with a product? Should they try out a service and give their thoughts? How interactive would you like the format of the event to be?
  2. Based on the event brief you’ve created, which athlete speaker would be the best fit for your event? Think about their personal qualities and the stories they have from their career. We can best advise on how to match the expertise of the speaker to the particular aims of your event.
  3. Understand what you want the audience to take away from the event. Is the idea for them to be left uplifted, or to get practical tips on overcoming challenges? Do you want them to feel inspired to make changes within their own lives? What one feeling do you want them to step away with? Are there follow-up activities you have planned to help them keep on track?
  4. Plan out your marketing. Any successful event depends on spreading the word - and with a star athlete on board, people will want to know about your event. Think about an event marketing plan - this could include email marketing, social media campaigns, internal communications to staff, or some display advertising to let people know what you have planned and get them bought into the event.
  5. Know your budget. A good corporate event is one that delivers on its objectives and does so within a predetermined budget. Once you have a budget planned out, track your spending in an event budget planner so that you can see how much you are working through and keep things on course for success.

The best way to get the response you’re looking for at your next motivational event is by hiring a professional sports athlete speaker.

Jaire Alexander and Oakley

As a standout NFL cornerback with the Green Bay Packers, Jaire Alexander has fans anxious to experience his enthusiasm and swag when he steps onto the football field. Known for his colorful and stylish sunglasses, there was no question he was the right athlete to wear the iconic brand Oakley.

Shaq and Papa Johns

Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most well-known basketball players in the history of the sport. He has recently partnered with Papa John’s Pizza, and along with creating his own pizza, he has agreed to promote the business on his personal social media sites. His endorsement of Papa John’s has proven to be a rewarding experience for both parties involved.

Davante Adams and Jordan Brand
