All-Star Game Management

All-Star Game Management

Like few professionals in the football industry, ITL’s Neil Stratton offers a level of hands-on experience and know-how. Having served as Director of Personnel for the 2007 Inta Juice North-South All-Star Classic and the 2008 Cornerstone Bancard Hula Bowl, Stratton has intimate knowledge of every matter surrounding such a contest, including marketing, operations, media, personnel/player evaluation, logistics and stadium management roles as well as liaising with members of the business community.

In his roles with both games, Stratton has been directly responsible for the invitation of 47 players to all-star games that went on to be drafted, along with countless players who went undrafted but attended camp as undrafted free agents. He has also provided feasibility studies and advisory services to businesses considering launching an all-star game, and will be working as a consultant for a new game in 2011.
