DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1) Why do teams offer promotional discounts on products like tickets and merchandise?

2) Why do you think some teams might choose not to participate in sales events like Black Friday or Cyber Monday? 3) Why do you think teams build promotions with holiday-based

themes? 5) Do you think it is more difficult to attract crowds to sporting events during the holidays? Why or why not? 6) Review each of the promotional slides

included in this presentation. What makes each promotion unique? What were they trying to sell? What incentive were they giving to encourage consumers to purchase? 7) If your class was responsible for building a

holiday-themed marketing campaign for your high school athletics, what types of promotions would you offer?
