We are sports media and marketing experts specializing in revenue generating solutions. Our team brings over 50 years of combined experience in the industry to our clients that range from NFL, MLB and NHL franchises, to universities and Fortune 500 companies.
WHO WE ARE
GameDay Sports was founded in 2001 as our CEO, Galen Beenken, capitalized on years of road-warrior experience in the professional and collegiate sports industries. He set an agenda for growth and profitability and over the years GameDay has achieved that and much more. In the beginning, publishing was at the core of the GameDay business. With clients like the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, Galen and his team developed key long-term relationships within the NFL and beyond.
Over time, as our clients’ trust and confidence grew, so did the depth and breadth of our business. In addition to seeing continued growth in our publishing division, GameDay has become a full-service sports marketing agency with local and national clients.
One key to the growth of GameDay Sports has been Galen’s vision to partner with like-minded companies and pursue non-traditional relationships and streams of revenue. As a result, GameDay Sports is positioned to be a leader in the sports media and marketing business for many years to come.
At GameDay Sports we work hard to build strong, long-term relationships with our partners and clients. We’d like for you to get to know our team.
