Building a global, engaged audience is one of the primary goals of the Star Sailors League. This means focussing on wide broadcast distribution at no cost rather than attempting to generate revenue by selling broadcast rights. All SSL video, photo
and news content will be delivered free of charge.
NATIONAL PRIDE & POPULAR EVENT
All sports fans, whether or not they are sailors, can get behind their national team and follow the team’s progress beginning with training in 2019, 2020 and 2021, final team selection in 2022, and the grand finale – the SSL Gold Cup in June 2022. Like with the Olympics or the football World Cup, even casual sports fans will be attracted to the SSL Gold Cup, with their country competing against teams from other nations.
A SUSPENSEFUL SCENARIO FOR SPORTS FANS
The SSL Global Ranking System, the annual buildup to the season-ending SSL Finals for individual sailors, and, now, the SSL Gold Cup for national teams, all provide a coherent scenario for the competition: easy to understand and follow, with the tension increasing over time to see who will top the ranking, who will win the year-end SSL Finals, and which country will be crowned the top sailing nation at the biennial SSL Gold Cup.
