Total Sports Complex Names The DeVilling Group as Advertising and Sponsorship Sales Partner
WIXOM, Mich. – Total Sports Complex, Michigan’s largest and most successful youth and adult team sports venue, today announced it has retained The DeVilling Group as its advertising and sponsorship sales partner. Total Sports General Manager, Tony Moscone, made the announcement.
“We have a great number of opportunities for advertising and sponsorship that will have significant benefit to organizations who want to reach an affluent audience,” Moscone said. “In addition, we are looking for partners who share our vision for creating memorable sports opportunities for kids today. The DeVilling Group shares a passion for youth sports, and also has excellent contacts throughout the metro Detroit business community. This is a win for our facility because it will maximize our involvement in the community and add value to the experience of Total Sports for the kids and families who play at and patronize Total Sports Complex.”
Total Sports houses competitive youth and adult leagues, as well as clinics and camps for soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball and roller hockey. Total Sports offers the best venues in the state for youth sports – training, tournaments and leagues. Total Sports is also the home of Total Performance, the leader in individual and team training with a focus on programs that develop speed, agility, balance and strength for athletes in their specific sports.
The three venues total more than 400,000 square feet and host more than one million visitors annually. This figure is greater than the annual individual attendance at the North American International Auto Show, the Detroit Lions, Detroit Red Wings or Detroit Pistons games in a season. “The demographic associated with Total Sports is typically a younger family with kids that play the sports and parents who support them,” said Moscone. “Our tournaments draw people from Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Canada and they all invest considerable dollars into the local economy. We are very proud of our ability to contribute to our cities, county and the state.”
Total Sports has opportunities for signage at the facilities, including banners, dasher boards and fence signs at the baseball fields as well as website and email advertising opportunities. Total Sports also has a commitment to “activate” sponsorships, with activities such as on-site “demo days”, product displays and interactive programs with local businesses.
“Youth sports continue to grow and attract the type of family demographic that advertisers want to reach,” said Mike DeVilling, president of The DeVilling Group. “I have two daughters who play competitive youth soccer and we have spent considerable time at games and tournaments at the Total Sports fields. All of the venues are outstanding and we see great potential in helping build the Total Sports brand through advertising and sponsorship activities.”
