Speak now, or forever hold your peace



A typical response we get from sports teams is that they do not have any insightful information pertaining to fans.  In digging a little further, we realize  that sports teams are not asking their partners (social media,  merchandizing, ticketing, F&B, Corporate Sales, Sponsorship Sales,  Turnstile, etc) to provide any fan information to them.  All these  partners have the ability to collect fan information and are willing to  share it with the sports teams - if asked. (Partners realize this can only help their own business).


All teams don't necessarily know what information they need and what they will do with it. But that is ok. Our advice to teams is to just ask for whatever data the partners can provide and include this ask into the  partnership contacts that you draw up.  This is a solid building block for your fan relationship platform. 

As far as collecting fan information is concerned, the old adage "Speak  Now, Or Forever Hold your Peace" holds very true.

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
