March Madness is Approaching, Are You Ready?

Sporting events consume the lives of millions throughout the year. This includes football, baseball, basketball, soccer and of course, golf. Not only do consumers want to watch these sporting events, but they want a gameday location that brings them back week after week.

Providing a quality gameday experience includes a long list of wants and needs that could make your clubs experience preffered over the next. VGM Club wants to make sure you have the basics. This allows you to focus your time and budget on everything outside of how view the game. 

Is the demand really there?

While football season may be wrapped up, it can be a huge selling point for clubs from the months of August through January, with other special events during the offseason such as the NFL Draft. The viewing numbers speak for themselves. In 2017, two major college football conferences in the Big Ten and the SEC pulled in over 13 million viewers each in their championship games. While 13 million may be an impressive number, the National championship between Alabama and Georgia brought in nearly 30 million viewers.

When it comes to the NFL the numbers are even more staggering. Nearly every NFL game posted over 10 million viewers in 2017, while Super Bowl 52 between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots posted a Whopping 104 million viewers. 

Football season has come to an end...What about the rest of the year?

While football alone can attract plenty of business, sports such as basketball, baseball, and golf can provide you with a long list of event ideas and gameday experiences you can utilize to gather membership year round. 

The NCAA basketball tournament is quickly approaching and you can utilize this March Madness for all of your sports fans at your club. In 2017 the NCAA tournament averaged 5.6 million viewers per game, and in 2018 the tournament as a whole posted nearly 160 million viewers.
