Sports PR agency in Manchester
Our specialist sports PR agency Manchester team handles public relations, media relations and personal branding for professional sports athletes. Our client base includes professional footballers, mixed martial artists (MMAs) and boxers.
We work in partnership with agents, managers, coaches, trainers and registered intermediaries – as well as specialist sports law firms, marketers, regulatory bodies and leading sports, health and nutrition brands. We also collaborate with UK musicians as the worlds of entertainment and sports converge.
21st century sport carries with it wider responsibilities to fans, sport, media and society as a whole. We believe that our sports clients have the ability to change lives and make a positive impact on society with their own personal story and personal brand. Developing positive media relations and carrying a positive influence comes with the territory when you are a professional and we believe its important to position our clients as responsible, ethical and inspirational.
Our sports team is headed up by Mia Walters, who has played soccer for Manchester City, Manchester United, Everton and Crewe Alexandra. Her professional sport experience and psychology studies at Loughborough University, the leading sports university in the world, means she is one of the most trusted connected personal branding experts in the sports industry.
Pete Davies, the managing director of Sugar PR, is a former professional league football referee who operated at the highest levels of the national game for the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) and the Football Association (FA).
