Training Ground Guru Media Pack

Introduction

Training Ground Guru has become the go-to destination for anyone wanting to find out about the teams behind the teams in professional football.

We are the biggest platform for professional football coaches and practitioners in the UK and subscribers to our weekly newsletter include Premier League managers, owners, executives, coaches, sports scientists and analysts.

Our website attracts more than 125,000 unique monthly visitors, while our social media channels have millions of impressions every month. Our stories, about the latest developments in coaching, sports science, football tech, leadership and youth development, are regularly picked up by mainstream media and in 2017, our first year, we were shortlisted for website of the year at the prestigious Sport Journalism Awards.

Our monthly podcast features high-profile figures from the industry, while our events have attracted big-name speakers and quickly sold out.

Advertising on TGG gets your company or product in front of a quality, highly-engaged audience. In short, we get to the professionals other sites cannot reach.

SPONSORED CONTENT

For carefully selected partners, we can produce sponsored content. This is a bespoke article, written by the TGG team, which promotes a company or product. The article will be promoted via our social media channels and will be included in our weekly newsletter.

It is important to note that the requirements for this type of content are as stringent as for any of our articles - they must be editorially strong and include a case study (usually from a player or club). Final editorial control always rests with TGG.

EVENT DIARY POSTING

Inclusion in our event diary and promotion via the TGG social media channels, which reach millions of people every month.
