Community Sport Network has received a major boost after we were licensed the prestigious ‘Inspired by 2012’ logo on our one year anniversary.
Community Sport Network launched on 12th August 2013 on the one year anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony as part of Inspired Exchange’s personal commitment to ensuring a legacy from the Games.
The Inspired by 2012 logo itself is licensed to "national and local projects that were inspired by 2012 while it connects projects with the legacy from the Games and the Jubilee, and with lots of other projects across the country.”
Since launching one year ago, Community Sport Network has quickly grown into an important and established information base in the community sport sector.
Lead guests have included the likes of Paralympic icon Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Sported founder Sir Keith Mills, Sport England CEO Jennie Price and of course former London 2012 Chairman Lord Sebastian Coe, who featured in both our first ever newsletter and who has now returned for our one year anniversary edition.
In our first year, Community Sport Network received over three million hits and was viewed in over 250 counties, with the UK, USA and China proving our three most popular markets so far.
In addition, Community Sport Network has built up over 3,500 subscribers for our free newsletter while we have a subscriber retention rate in excess of 99%, demonstrating the real value of our service.
Community Sport Network now features a free Jobs Board for employers to advertise their community sport vacancies and job seekers to find their perfect vacancy.
There is also a National Planner which lists all the major conferences and events that are happening in the sector.
"Our first year of Community Sport Network has been a real success,” said Editor Tom Degun.
"We have been delighted with its growth and our contribution to the legacy portfolio.
"Over the next year, Community Sport Network will look to become even bigger and better as it continues to serve as a valuable information base in the community sport sector and contribute to the ongoing legacy story of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
Looking ahead, Community Sport Network continues to seek to interact with the community sport sector.
Use of the free Jobs Board is encouraged by employers and job seekers; organisations are welcome to upload their key events and conferences to the National Planner and inbound community sport news stories are always of interest to us.
Organisations seeking to partner with Community Sport Network for unique advertising opportunities are also now being encouraged to contact us as we continue to grow and expand.
