Awareness: Sports events put the sponsor's name in front of the consumer, so that they will give it favorable recognition when exposed to other marketing messages.

Image: The exposure helps create a personality and style for a product or service, while distinguishing it from others in the market.

Customer Support: Consumers are more likely to purchase products or services from the companies aligned with their events. Fans and players respect the sponsor's support.

Positive Environment: Sports events spur an active, family friendly environment that is healthy for consumer-vendor relationships. Also, event sponsorships can encourage company pride and loyalty to help attract and retain staff.

Community Involvement: Sports events become a source of community pride. Sponsorships show that a company cares about the community and is prepared to invest in the future and welfare of its citizens.

Captive Audience: Most event layouts keep spectators confined to a specific area for an extended period of time, resulting in multiple exposures for the sponsor.
