Between 7th -11th August 2017, the 10th National Summer Games will take place in the City of Sheffield across a number of sporting venues. 2500 athletes with intellectual disabilities of all ages/abilities will come together from across the country. They will be supported over 4 days of competition by 700 coaches, 600 volunteers and over 6,000 family and friends. A spectacular Olympic-style Opening Ceremony will kick-off the event at Sheffield United FC, with a closing ceremony at Sheffield Arena. Our sponsors and partners are the lifeblood of any Games and can expect a wealth of unique marketing and CSR benefits to include: branding at Games sports venues and throughout the City; national & regional marketing and PR campaigns in the 18 month run up and during the event; client hospitality and opportunity to attend the Opening Ceremony, sports and present medals; employee volunteering and opportunities to meet our athletes and ambassadors.
