Amicus Sports has a wealth of event management experience, from major national events through to small office parties and family fun days.
No matter what the event, Amicus Sports offers a bespoke service delivering quality events which are tailored to the unique needs of each client.
At Amicus Sports, we believe there is “an event for everyone” and whether your event is for 10 people or 10,000 people you can be assured quality and integrity.

If the bid is successful the Amicus Sports team are able to organise all aspects of the event management - from selection of key personnel through to venue fit out, development of the sports programme, project management of the event itself, legacy planning and monitoring and evaluation.
We are interested in:

  • Tendering for your events
