Advertising

The Ottawa Sports Pages zooms in on a niche market that no other local publication reaches – families involved in organized sports, as well as all the coaches, managers, administrators, volunteers, sponsors and fans that make up the Capital region’s vibrant sports community.

The Ottawa Sports Pages offers a range of opportunities for advertising, promotion, sponsorship and content creation through OttawaSportsPages.ca, our email newsletter, social media channels, and our sister site at OttawaSportsCAMPS.ca.

Please contact Ottawa Community Sport Media Team Executive Director Dan Plouffe at 613-261-5838 or execdir@ottawasportspages.ca for all inquiries.

TESTIMONIAL

“We’ve really enjoyed working with the Ottawa Sports Pages over many years. Here at Louis-Riel, we have an exceptional group of dedicated coaches and student-athletes, and we’re very proud of the leading-edge Sports-Études program we’ve built, but we don’t always have the time or the expertise to spread the word and share our stories, so it’s been a big help to partner with the Sports Pages.

“We’re really pleased to have our place in a publication that’s all about local sports – that helps us reach the kind of people who could be interested in our program.

“It’s also been a good investment in terms of our own communications – we can re-use ads on our own promotional channels or make them into posters, their articles and columns become content for our blog, newsletter and social media, their photos can go in brochures, their interviews serve as testimonials, and all the info can goes on our website.

“I know that a lot of sports groups face the same kind of challenges as us, so I’d say working with the Ottawa Sports Pages could be really beneficial for them.”

— Ken Levesque, Louis-Riel high school Sports-Études Program Coordinator / Ottawa Sports Pages Partner
