QMS Sport Announces Strategic Alliance
QMS Sport and Techfront Australia have today announced a strategic alliance which sees QMS Sport expand its portfolio of sports media rights and Techfront Australia consolidate its position as the pre-eminent supplier and operator of on-field LED signage in Australia and New Zealand.
The media sales rights to all NRL games, including the State of Origin series, and select AFL games, will be consolidated under the new alliance via QMS Sport, with Techfront providing a uniformed display across all on-field LED signage, including game-day operational duties.
This means QMS Sport now represents the largest on-field sports media network in Australia. The expanded presence across the NRL and AFL competitions complement its existing media rights across the super netball, rugby union, FFA and V8 Supercars.
Advertisers will now have the opportunity to impact a highly engaged sports audience across a fully integrated sports media channel, making it easier for brands to engage with the millions of fans who attend or view matches.
QMS CEO, John O’Neill said “QMS Sport’s sales strategy has been to simplify brands’ access to the highly sought-after sports audience by strategically acquiring the media/marketing rights for the most popular sports, codes and events.”
This deal cements QMS Sport as the largest sports rights media business in Australia and New Zealand and provides a dominant position across all major sporting codes in this country.
