Victory In excellence

The pride of Sportsvendo

The Sportsvendo Team is just as comfortable with global events and brands as they are with the South African Market.  First, they obtained the rights and was appointed as partner in South Africa of the New York City Marathon, then successfully obtained the rights to present and produce the Powerman Duathlon World Championship in South Africa, a first for SA and Africa.  The 45-year-old J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge global series expanded to South Africa in 2004 and they were appointed as the Event Coordinators, which they still are today. 

Over last decade they were granted the exclusive rights for the USA brand;- The Color Run, and thereafter followed a partnership with Warner Bros and DC Comics for the presentation of Super Hero branded sport events. 

Most recently they obtained the exclusive rights from the MONOPOLY Board Game to design and produce World Class City Marathon Monopoly Board Games and the first one to be released will be the Comrades Marathon Centenary Monopoly.  Leon and the Sportsvendo team this year [2021] won the Bid for South Africa and Athletics South Africa to host the IAU 50km World Championship in 2023.  Again, a First for South Africa and Africa.
