How to Plan a Sporting Event: from Portable Toilets to Choosing a Venue

Sporting events happen all through the year and are a great way to bring together supporters and athletes to enjoy and share their passion for the sport. Whether you want to organise a marathon, a hockey tournament or a charity football game, there is plenty of organisation and planning involved. However, if you stay on top of your tasks, you’ll be able to pull off a great event that everyone can enjoy.

From portable toilets to catering, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about organising a sporting event.

Make a plan

Before you get started, it’s wise to put your ideas down on paper and create a solid plan to work by. This will help you and any other volunteers or committee members know exactly what needs to be done and by when. Make sure to jot down everything you’ll need to book, hire or buy for the event so you have a clear idea of what needs to be done. It’s a good idea to start planning several months in advance or even more if it is going to be a large-scale event.

Choose a venue

Pinning down a venue can be a challenging task but you may already have somewhere in mind. This will be the first thing you’ll need to secure as attendees will need to know where the event is going to be held. If you’re unable to secure an appropriate venue, your event won’t be able to go ahead. The venue may also be able to supply certain things such as catering services, volunteers or toilets so this will affect what else needs to be planned and booked.

Promote your event

Another essential aspect of a sporting event is your athletes and attendees. Promote your event on social media, send out flyers and emails and advertise in local papers to ensure everyone who is likely to come knows about the event. If you’re selling tickets, you’ll need to advertise how much these will cost and make sure people are aware of when and where they can purchase them.

Hire portable toilets and catering

If your venue doesn’t provide toilets or doesn’t have enough, you’ll need to find a company that you can hire them from in the area. It may also be worth providing shower blocks so that athletes can get clean straight after the event. If you’re going to have a large number of spectators or athletes, you’ll need to supply them with toilets. It would also be a good idea to have plenty of catering options available so enlisting the services of several food trucks is a great idea.
