The University of the Free State’s (UFS) Divisions Corporate Relations and KovsieSport recently hosted the Director of Academic Marketing from the University of Nebraska in the United States of America, Corrie Sears. She conducted a presentation on “The value of sport for a university’s brand.”

According to Ms Sears, branding must be an integral part of a university’s awareness campaigns. This could help to increase attendance on sports days. Ms Sears’s presentation also left attendees with some good examples on creating the right atmosphere on the day that a sports game is played. The University of Nebraska is known for their more than 300 consecutive total sell-outs of their football games.
