My Sport Live is pleased to extend its commitment to grassroots athletics by signing on as the Naming Rights Sponsor for the 2017 Sandy Gift.
The event, which will now be known as the My Sport Live Sandy Gift, is a sanctioned Victorian Athletics League (VAL) event taking place at the Sandringham Athletics Club on Sunday November 12.
Along with supporting the event in a Naming Rights Sponsor capacity, My Sport Live will again broadcast the event LIVE on the day, with event coverage kicking off from 12pm.
The Sandy Gift is the only VAL-sanctioned event in Victoria not run on grass, giving athletes of all abilities the chance to shine on the big stage.
On display throughout the event will be 10 VAL sanctioned races featuring some of Australia’s best athletes competing for a share in prize money, with the showpiece race being the My Sport Live Sandy Gift over 300m.
The event is also set to feature two athlete with disability events which will also have prize money up for grabs, along with the much anticipated ItsMyCall Celebrity versus Sponsors 100m race.
Event organiser and triple Paralympian Don Elgin said he was excited to expand the event’s partnership with My Sport Live after a successful broadcast of the Sandy Gift in 2016.
“We are stoked to have My Sport Live step up as the Naming Rights Sponsor for this year’s Sandy Gift,” Elgin said.
“Last year was a huge success in terms of people viewing the stream, and it really was fantastic to see athletes with a disability running or pushing on the track with the able-bodied athletes.
“The Sandy Gift is the season opening event of the VAL calendar, so if you can’t make it down to the Sandringham Athletics Club to experience the family-themed atmosphere on the day, be sure to tune into My Sport Live for all the fun and excitement, and of course view the high-class athletes on show.”
My Sport Live Managing Director Andrew Weiss said the company was delighted to demonstrate its commitment to grassroots sport by becoming a major sponsor of the Sandy Gift.
“My Sport Live is extremely proud to become the Naming Rights Sponsor of the 2017 My Sport Live Sandy Gift,” Weiss said.
“A key aspect of our company’s operations is to provide an outlet for grassroots sport organisations to showcase their major events and sports on the big screen, and in this case we couldn’t be happier to be lending our support to an event that caters for and features events for athletes of all abilities.
“The Sandy Gift keeps getting bigger and better every year, and we can’t wait to bring you all the action on My Sport Live.”
