Tifosi Sports is proud to announce the launch of both our ambassador programmes and sponsored athlete programmes. We’ve started the search to find South African ambassadors for the international sport brands we represent in South Africa, namely – Nalini, On-running and Compressport.
Being selected as a brand ambassador is an enormous honour, especially considering the global popularity of these leading sports brands. As an ambassador, you will join a group of elite international athletes like Javier Gómez (5 times ITU World Champion), Lisa Roberts (Ironman winner) and Matt Trautman (SA Ironman champ).
Our appointed ambassadors for Nalini, On or Compressport will get to purchase apparel of their specific brand at a price much lower than anyone else. They will also be regularly featured in our various marketing material and on our social media pages for the respective brand they represent. These chosen athletes (social and pro) will often get international exposure as our Tifosi Sports marketing team love to boast about our ambassadors at international events and global marketing initiatives for these brands.
You don’t need to be a professional sports person to be considered for our Ambassador programme. If you regularly participate in events or in a specific sport and you are a regular blogger on social media then take a few minutes to apply for our Ambassador programme. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
Ambassador programmes like Tifosi Sports’ one, can often the stepping stone for a budding sports person that has big dreams and moving up the ranks – it can often be the “break” one needs to become a fully sponsored athlete. Sponsored athletes are generally professional athletes who represent their province nationally and/or country internationally in their chosen sporting event and are supplied with various free apparel for training and competitions/games.
As mentioned above, to become a South African sports ambassador for any of Nalini, On and/or Compressport, you do not have to be a professional athlete, you should however have a passion for your selected sport. Even if you are just a recreational athlete, you can still apply for the programme.
In fact, we’ve found that some of the best ambassadors are ordinary athletes who are simply passionate about staying active and healthy. In addition, they love to network with friends and family and are regular social media users.
Being a social media influencer will count in your favour, but it is not a prerequisite. Ambassadors should, however, have an active profile on any form of social media.
To be considered as an ambassador for Nalini you should be a cyclist be it a “roady” or a true mountain biker.
Similarly, for both On and Compressport, you can be an athlete from almost any discipline, be it running, swimming to weightlifting or triathlons.
Applications for the Tifosi Sports’ Ambassador programme opened mid-October 2017 and the successful athletes will be announced in early January 2018.
To apply, simply follow the link and fill in the application form. On the form, you will be required to write a short motivation about why you would make the ideal SA ambassador.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Nalini, On or Compressport team.
