Membership Enquiry for 2018


All the latest news on the commercial world of Irish sport as well as the best ideas from around the world that are relevant for Irish Sport and Irish Business.

The Daily Digest is delivered to almost 4,000 sporting and business leaders each weekday morning.

It serves to shine a spotlight on the work that brands and sports are doing to connect best with fans and audiences.  We don’t talk about injuries and match reports, our focus is on what our members want, an exclusive insight to the power of sport off the field of play.

The daily digest, online service and our social media channels include a mix of free content and analysis that is exclusive to members.

Members also have access to an online archive that stretches to more than five years of all the deals and innovations that have been part of the development of Irish sport.

“The first email I look for in the morning.  It sets me up for the day” – Paraic Duffy, Director General of the GAA

Sport for Business Events

From Round Tables to Global events attracting world leaders in the business of sport, we bring members together for events that set the agenda when it comes to the connections between sport and business.

In January 2018 our first major gathering of the year took place in the Marker Hotel drawing together over 100 Members and Guests for insight on how sponsorship is received by the Irish public, to look at the big events of the year and to hear an exclusive interview with outgoing GAA Director General Paraic Duffy on his ten years at the helm of the Association.

In April 2017 we hosted Partners’17 a look at how different sporting properties and brands can come together.  This included working alongside Livewire, Electric Ireland, AIG, Allianz and more to deliver a top class event.

In November we hosted our third annual Women in Sport Conference at UCD.

Recent Round Table meetings have focused Sponsorship Activation, Women in Sport, Attendance at Sporting Events, the Power of Data and Social Media.


We facilitate contact with an understanding of mutual interest for all parties.

The Sport for Business Round Table programme brings smart minds together to tackle issues that are relevant to the crossing point where sport and business meet.  Previous events have taken place in Google Docks, on the stage of the Abbey Theatre, the Irish Embassy in London and the FAI Suite at the Aviva Stadium.



Our involvement with events like One Young World, the Irish Sponsorship Summit, the Irish Sport Industry Awards, The Arthur Guinness Projects and a host of projects with enthusiastic partners helps to amplify the work we are all doing in making sport matter.
