PRINCETON, N.J. – The ECHL announced that the Colorado Eagles are the 2016-17 recipient of the ECHL Award of Excellence for Marketing.
The award recognizes the ECHL team that executes a well-rounded marketing, sponsorship and advertising campaign with consideration given to sponsorship sales, advertising, marketing campaign and promotions.
The other finalists were the Florida Everblades, Kansas City Mavericks, South Carolina Stingrays and Toledo Walleye.
This is the second time in the last three years that the Eagles have received the Marketing Award of Excellence. Colorado continues to remain among the top teams in the League in sponsorship revenue through growing a large base of multi-year partnerships and integrating social media into sponsorship categories. The team developed several unique promotions this past season to create team awareness, drive ticket sales and promote corporate partners. They also utilized a variety of marketing channels to promote ticket sales, promotions and community involvement including grassroots, social media, retargeting and a branded marketing campaign titled “Live for Gameday” which was used to illustrate to players, fans and staff that there is no better day than an Eagles game day.
In addition, the team was also named a finalist for the ECHL’s Social Media Award of Excellence and the Overall Award of Excellence. Sean Linfield was also a finalist for Account Executive of the Year, while Kevin McGlue was named as a finalist for the ECHL’s Broadcaster of the Year.
