Stadium and Arena Advertising

October truly is one of the best times of year to be a sports fan! The MLB playoffs are in full swing, football is officially back, and our next-door neighbors, the Columbus Blue Jackets, are once again competing against their NHL counterparts. Sports season presents great opportunities for OOH advertising. In this blog post, we’ll take a shot at explaining various types of stadium advertising and the benefits of each.

Jumbotron Features

These massive digital video boards are commonplace in almost every sports venue and are a premier location for your OOH advertisement.

Advertising features on Jumbotrons are typically 30-90 seconds long and are displayed either after a play or during a timeout. By disguising these ads as attention-grabbing entertainment segments such as top plays, team trivia, and stadium-wide raffles fans can remain fully immersed in their experience while simultaneously connecting with brands’ promotions.

Stadium Signage

Despite being relatively conventional in nature you can be sure these ads will reach the hoards of fans who roam the stadium looking for their seats, restrooms, and concession stands.

Branded Stadium Seating

Seat advertisements refer to branded giveaway bags, containing a variety of goods and information, that are affixed to the backs of fans’ seats before the start of the game. Placing these ads at one of the fans’ first points of contact with the stadium makes your brand stand out, and immediately prompts users to engage with your offering. By investing in seating advertisements you place your brand directly at the fingertips of consumers and encourage continual interaction both during and after the game.

Turnstile Advertisements

Placing these ads on turnstiles at the entrances of stadiums and arenas, either before or after security checkpoints, obligates long lines of fans to personally interact with your advertisement on their way to the game.
