Public relations is a fundamental element of any sports communication and marketing strategy and can be an extremely cost-effective way for an organisation to enhance reputation, service or product. Public relations is used in the sports industry to raise awareness, inform and educate, build trust, connect, give people a reason to support and create fan engagement. The relevance and impact of public relations in the marketing communications mix is explored in the context of campaign planning, stakeholder engagement, sponsorship, and issues and crisis management, across sports organisations, teams and players at professional and grassroots levels. Students will apply this knowledge to creating and pitching an authentic campaign for the semester sports client.
