VisitEngland PR Campaign: Home of Sport

VisitEngland PR Campaign: Home of Sport

On 10th June 2015, VisitEngland will launch a PR campaign entitled Home of Sport. The social media-led campaign will ask the public to upload photos of their own "home of sport" to help find the country's ultimate sporting capital.

To all Shropshire Tourism members – golf clubs, sports centres, sports organisations, or simply members with a particularly picturesque local sports ground near you – you can get involved directly by uploading some of your suggestions!

From 10th June upload your nomination to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #homeofsport, and include details of the location. VisitEngland are looking for sporting claims to fame (i.e birthplace of a sporting legend, or a sport or pastime) iconic venues, but also 'hidden gems' (i.e walking trails with incredible views or cycle paths that follow ancient routes).

All nominations will be displayed on a Sports Wall at www.englandhomeofsport.com from 10th June.  Nominations close on 31 August. In September, VisitEngland will put a shortlist of destinations out to public vote and England’s Home of Sport will be announced on 23rd October.

You can also email images/suggestions of scenic sports grounds with amazing backdrops to Claire at Shropshire Tourism, cowen@shropshiretourism.co.uk (these can - and probably will be - small local pitches) and we will feed them through to VisitEngland.
