Here are some of the many reasons why over 240 organisations have already chosen to be part of the Sport for Business community.  Which one applies to you?


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 over 3,500 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 four 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 will take place at the Marker Hotel looking at the year ahead in sport, sponsorship and other important areas.

We have an exciting programme coming together for the rest of this year, come be part of it with us


The Sport for Business Round Table programme brings smart minds together to tackle issues that are relevant in 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.
