Sports content creator and masters’ athlete Jim Sweeney is excited to utilize the Open Sponsorship platform to generate interest for two different sports properties.


Sponsorship Opportunity 1


As creator of the Trademarked MIKE cartoon sports character, Sweeney has carefully crafted his digital innovation to become the first animated brand to transcend all sports.


With an ever growing portfolio of 635 sports blogs and 37  sports comic ebooks, the MIKE property is now extending its digital brand.


A new MIKE on Sports! podcast will launch this spring on iTunes and Stitcher Radio. Sweeney is currently evaluating sponsorship opportunities and can be reached at .


The MIKE on sports! podcast will air fun, witty and sometimes serious sports narratives. Each brief monologue will side step last night’s scores, today’s standings and tomorrow’s big games. Instead, the entertaining podcast will focus on timeless observations and overlooked peculiarities that comprise the American sports culture.


Sponsorship Opportunity 2


Jim Sweeney serves as the USA Representative for FIMBA – Federation of International Masters Basketball Association – the 30 year-old, worldwide governing body for masters’ hoops.


FIMBA has tasked Sweeney with extending its brand here in the United States and recruiting teams for the 13th FIMBA world championships to be held in August 2015 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.


Currently, 210 international men and women teams are registered, and they feature former Olympians, national team players and European pros. Sweeney is seeking sponsors for this 9 day sporting event involving 2,500+ senior athletes and ESPN3 television coverage.


Jim has played for medal winning USA 50+ teams in the FIMBA world championships in Greece (2013), Brazil (2011) and the Czech Republic (2009). He can be reached at .
