FandRaising (sm) Flagship Fan Functions
“The Pro Show”
Pro Show Games are modeled after the traditional FIFA matches with the exception of fan and children participation. The games are friendly competitions that are hosted by 5-15 of our professional athletes that play side by side with youth teams, local dignitaries, first responders, fantasy fulfilling Fathers, school leaders, and local Newscasters.
One USA Today Reporter summarized our Pro Show Games, as “The Harlem Globetrotters of Football”, which, in our opinion, is the highest compliment possible in Sports Entertainment.
In addition to the game, other supporting on-site festivities include autograph sessions, photo opportunities, sponsor dinners/brunches, community cookoffs, and other mini functions respective to the communities that host.
Depending on the Venue/Stadium/Community the Pro Show draws 500-13,000 spectators and can generate up to $190,000 in ticket revenues alone. Concessions, Merchandise, Autograph Cards, and Sponsor Dollars are also split with the non-profit entities based on their respective efforts and involvement
The “Community Festivals” are sponsor driven and themed around a tailgating environment relative to the sport and respective current season that is “in play” at the particular time.
The organizers, children, PTA, and/or Booster Clubs sell tickets to attend the festivals where they get to interact and work side by side with the professional athletes.
The family friendly gatherings include things like bouncy houses, adult beverage tastings (when appropriate), cook-offs, live music, autographs, face paintings, golf cart races, horseshoes, sack races, photo opportunities, and professional athletes mingling in casual and/or private VIP setting. Customarily, the pros bring their own families and compete side by side with the other attending parents and children.
The festivals are approximately 5 to 8 hours long and always revolve around different food theme concepts. For example, Chili, BBQ, Salsa, Wing, and/or Cajun Cook-offs, as well as, Cookie, Pie and Cake Bake-offs with the Pros.
“Lunch w/ Legends & FIFA Film Nights” are sponsor and ticket sale driven functions that are hosted by local Sports Anchors which interview the athlete as they review unforgettable matches and plays from their careers.
Organizers, children, PTA members, and/or Booster Clubs raise revenue by selling tickets, sponsorships and VIP tables to their community. The proceeds are divided in equal parts between The FIFA Players Foundation and the participating organization(s).
These functions cater to smaller audiences (50-200) and deliver the ultimate “Professional Sports Star” lifestyle experience. They range from casual radio shows to the more formal FIFA Film Night Evenings. The media themed functions include limousine arrivals, red carpet interviews, white linen meal service, and range from 1-2.5 hours.
The “ESPY” styled evening functions provide attending contributors the opportunity to relive memories with the attending athlete while they reminisce historic playoff games and championships in person.
