Sportmadness 19-20 Kickoff

Sportmadness brings together the largest community of sports managers in the world in the 19-20 Kickoff.

Like every year, September is arriving and our “back to school” begins with our Sportmadness delegates from Spain and Peru. After a year full of great news, the start of the 19 / 20 season was guaranteed, at the very least, to be exciting. And so it was: the last 28 and 29 of September, More than 30 sports managers met again in our Sportmadness Kickoff III.

A community of sports managers connected, at the forefront of sport and technology. This is the main conclusion we could draw from this exciting event, where we mixed training sessions, team activities and news, in addition to the already famous gala of Sportmadness Awards.

"We love being able to live this moment with our franchisees, in which they become the main protagonist. We believe it is an enriching event for them, where they can learn from other delegations; while we get valuable feedback to improve our franchise model. It is a real pleasure to bring together during these days the team that we train among all members of Sportmadness between Spain and Peru."

"I've been with my franchise for a few months now and I realize how important it is know the other delegations. To see that other sports managers like you are also living from sports, but doing things in a different way invites you to leave your comfort zone and try new things. It's motivating to start the season like this!"
