ĐỀ THI IELTS WRITING TASK 2 NGÀY 22/08/2020

Some companies sponsor sport and sports stars as a way to advertise themselves. Some people think it is good, while other thinks there are disadvantages. Discuss both view and give your opinion.

It is the case that sports sponsorship has been around for ages and gained its popularity during the last decade. While some people argue that there is a wide range of benefits that people can reap when they delve into this arena, others and I deem that it is an unwise investment during this digital era.

On the one hand, there are several advantages of sponsorship in sports. First of all, it is undoubted that sponsoring sports events has been proved to be an effective approach to branding promotion. For example, when a company provides funds for sports stars, its brand and products will be better well-known amongst the public and are more likely to be favored by those stars’ frenetic fans. Further, sponsoring and advertising for sports activities can be a marvelous opportunity to increase sales and profits. This is because sports events with football stars’ endorsement, for example, will captivate a huge number of audiences who normally have deeply-rooted allegiances and are also potential customers.

On the other hand, other people and I believe that sponsoring sports and sports stars’ endorsement can bring various drawbacks to investors. The first demerit is that it is such a time-consuming task, compared with such traditional advertising tools as printing or Television. For instance, it requires careful planning, realization, and evaluation, which are perceived to be disadvantageous. The second obvious negative aspect of sports funding is its weak message implication. This means that enterprises and businesses can only promote themselves via such plain visual means as their logos or images of products.

In conclusion, while some may think that sponsorship in sports and sports celebrities should be promoted for the sake of the companies, I would contend that this is not the most beneficial investment in this digital and technological age.
