About Sportsnet® Holidays:
Sportsnet® is Australia’s premier sports travel and experience business. For over two decades Sportsnet has formulated successful partnerships with some of the world’s largest and prolific sporting event stakeholders. Sportsnet has made the dreams of hundreds of thousands of sports fans come to life over a 23-year history.
It is no secret that Australians have a love of sport and an unrelenting desire to travel within Australia and abroad. This culture turned out to be the driving force behind the creation of the Sportsnet brand in August 1998. Right from the start, Sportsnet’s business plan was simple: make it easy for sports fans to attend their favourite events (to “see it live!”), no matter where the event or fixture was being staged in the world. By remaining true to its core business strategy while maintaining a dedication to excellence, Sportsnet has grown to become Australia’s leading and largest provider of sports travel experiences.
