5 Sport Entertainment Tips from Top Event Planning Companies / Solution Entertainment

As all good event planning companies know, there are a few tips and tricks to getting the entertainment right at sporting events.

We recommend a layered entertainment approach to buffer downtime like ticketing and queues, and keep energy up in breaks to the main event.

These five ideas can add colour and buzz, and create a seamless event experience for your guests.

1. Blow-up props

If your sporting event is drawing a crowd, large-scale inflatables are fun to bounce in the stands, use in water or at the beach. They double up as entertainment for children and are a fun event takeaway to boost the ambience and perceived value. Tip: customise inflatables to a theme or sponsor to add extra value, exposure and synergy for partners.

2. Interactive food and drink stations

Food is always a crowd pleaser; why not take a classic sporting snack and make it interactive? Think custom hot dogs and ice cream or craft beer stations to take everyday event catering to the next level.

3. Break-out entertainment for kids

Sporting events are popular for families and children however long days can make little fans and players tired. Consider small break-out spots like teepees where children can play and snack away from the noise and the clutter.

4. Showcase social handles and hashtags

Hashtags are a great way to showcase your event, leverage content, encourage interaction and push it out to a wider audience. Set up and showcase hashtags and encourage guests or attendees to tag their photos as they post. Enlist a professional photographer to capture event imagery for your digital assets and in future pitches to attract partners and sponsors.

5. Live performers

From funny to jaw-dropping, stunt performers can add a wow factor to your entertainment. There are so many to choose from and they vary in style and aesthetic, so reach out to us for recommendations. A live act is the icing on the cake to wrap your event and create impact.

These are just a few entertainment ideas to elevate your next sporting event.
