Global sports marketing agency Lagardčre Sports has established a partnership with KSW - one of the biggest Mixed Martial Arts federations in the world. As our exclusive marketing partner, Lagardčre Sports Poland will be responsible for attracting corporate sponsors and merchandising business packages for KSW.
The agency will support KSW in the area of sponsorship strategy development and implementation of innovative marketing solutions aimed at acquiring new commercial partners using the popularity of the discipline and the possibility of interacting with KSW fans both at events and during television broadcasts. Thanks to the actions taken by Lagardčre Sports, KSW will be available on TV channels in other countries around the world, which will naturally contribute to the growth of its brand’s value. Moreover, Lagardčre Sports is going to deal with the sale of business packages at KSW events in Poland and abroad.
“KSW is a leader among MMA organisations in Europe and is one of the largest federations in the world. It is a huge and diverse platform of communication for both domestic and global brands. Considering the emotions it arouses, we hope for a successful and interesting cooperation. We are proud that we are the first agency on the Polish market to cooperate with KSW” - commented the President of the Management Board of Lagardčre Sports Poland, Andrzej Placzyński, after signing the agreement.
Martin Lewandowski, the co-founder and the CEO of KSW, added:
“The ‘KSW 39. Colosseum’ record event in May 2017 at the National PGE stadium gathered almost 58,000 spectators, placing in the top three in terms of audience at sports events taking place in Poland. Additional millions of people watched the show in front of the screens - battles were broadcasted in 36 countries, whereas online broadcast was available on 4 continents. The event confirmed the international position of the KSW - it was the second largest MMA event in the world sport history. Our further strategy is clear: we focus on the international expansion. Cooperation with an international, experienced agency is a natural step towards the development for us. We are looking forward to this cooperation and we believe it will bring many positive outcomes”.
