SPORT: Mission to create more opportunities for wrestling in Scotland

Scottish Wrestling employs sports marketing agency in bid to secure a permanent home

 By Rory Murphy

SCOTTISH Wrestling is currently looking for a permanent training facility and have employed Glasgow-based sport marketing agency, GRM Marketing, to help them do so.

This milestone is a major move for Scottish Wrestling on its mission to create more opportunities for the sport in Scotland and to help their athletes in their bids for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022.

Scottish Wrestling approached GRM Marketing, whose speciality is sponsorship and sports marketing, to help them in gaining additional support in order to fulfil their plans for this year.

The main initiative for the year is to secure a permanent home for Scottish Wrestling and the wrestling community to ensure the team can prepare for a busy year ahead.

Alex Gladkov, the governance director of Scottish Wrestling, says:

“The team at GRM is very friendly, professional and we look forward to working together for the benefit of wrestling. By organising the Via Sponsorship conference and Sponsor Lead platform, GRM has recommended itself as a leader and expert in this field.

“We have ambitious plans in developing the sport and believe that our partnership with GRM will add value to the organisation and bring us one step closer towards achieving our goals.”

GRM Marketing has recently launched its Sponsor Lead platform, an exciting new business designed to make lasting and lucrative connections between businesses and elite athletes.

Sponsor Lead currently represents Team GB freestyle wrester, Ross Connelly, and have played a vital part in securing Ross sponsorship, enabling him to travel to the European Championships in North Macedonia last month.

Ross, who is currently ranked number one in Scotland and top 3 podium in his weight category, said:

“I’m delighted to be working with Sponsor Lead and GRM Marketing in the build up to the 2022 Commonwealth Games. I feel, by working with Sponsor Lead, it will increase my chances of winning a medal for Scotland as well as shining a light on the great sport of wrestling.”
