The cycling game is not heavily endorsed in the state despite a strategy put in place to ensure that their participation in the game increased the participation keeps on reducing.

Through this, the manager will be able to receive both the financial and social support needed to ensure that the team is well developed and prepared for the future.

The media guide.

This guide presents information about the team participants, the history of the team, statistical records and the events the team is associated with. The media guide also provides information about how the stakeholders can become part and parcel of the team's event. Through providing the avenue on which the stakeholder's contribution towards the team success can be felt. The following guide was therefore developed.

Media guide of the Cyclic Australian team.

Contact information:  The section presents the contact information about the team, under this the contact information such as the email address of the team is presented and also the telephone number.

Schedule event- the events scheduled for the team, both for professional purposes and also charity work is shown with their specific dates. The venues information is also relaid. The expected changes are also highlighted to keep the fans and other stakeholders aware of the changes.

The guide also contains the governing body information as well as the main stakeholders who mainly are the sponsors. The sponsors brand and name as well as the logos are included in the media guide.


 Media guide is an important tool in relaying the information to the stakeholders. The guide contains useful information which guides the stakeholders in decision making (Lewis et al. 1). The contact information provides an avenue through which future sponsors can reach the governing body and offer the support necessary for the team's development. Through this communication, the audience can know how they can become part of the team either directly or indirectly. Through the team's email, for instance, the fans can follow their teams and receive updated information about their teams.  The information from the guide helps stakeholders such as the government to understand the strength and weaknesses of the team. Through this, therefore, the stakeholder can make informed decisions. The leadership of the team is identified through the media guide. The fans, however, will be in a place to criticize the leadership in case that teams underperform based on the past performance also highlighted on the guide. Performance change can be achieved by changing the leadership of these team. If the information is readily available therefore the changes can be done to achieve the performance standards expected from the team by the stakeholders.

Media release

The components of the press release which would be adopted by the Australian team are;

The team logo- this is meant to act as an identifier of the team. The team logo, therefore, should be placed in a point where it is readily seen by the intended users. The team's logo should be placed strategically at the top of the media release. This, therefore, will ensure that the intended press team will be able to access the information about the team with a lot of ease. The section ensures that the information is aligned with the policy and requirements of the selected media opportunity to be used for advertisement.

Contact information.

The section provides the contact information about the team as well as their sponsors. The information helps the media team to associate the team's success with other aspects of life especially the one undertaken by the sponsors. Through this, the team my benefit from the popularity of the brand of its sponsors and therefore end up getting more support.

Release time frame.

Under this, the team strategically design the timeframe upon which their press release will be released based on the objectives of the release. The team, therefore, may decide to release its press release strategically within a time where it will reach most of the audience. Under this the press release maybe did when the cyclic season is about to start, this will ensure that the information reaches the intended stakeholders effectively and efficiently. The

Headlines of the media release.

The media release has to be designed in such a manner that it provides the information needed in a straightforward manner and at the same time very detailed. The heading and the sub-headings of a media release, therefore, need to be strategically designed to ensure that they relay the intended information in the right manner (McLuhan and Marshal 147). The subheading ought to be designed in such a manner that they explain more about the preceding headings. The information about where the media release is being done should also be considered and given out within the media release.


Media release must be guided by facts about the teams previous or current achievements. The media release, therefore, must be true. Through this, the team avoids giving false information which might give them an added advantage currently but make them suffer consequences in the future.


The release targets the media opportunities strategically designed to ensure the success of advertisement of the team. Having a media release based on facts will not only attracts funding and sponsorship but will ensure the attracted sponsors remain to continue supporting the team. The detailed information relaid in the media release will ensure that the common questions about the team are answered (Joowon,119). The media release also presents an avenue for the team to advertise itself more to the target audience. Most of the media releases ate strategically done within a given medium, the use of the right medium enhances the information spread of the relaid information. Use of a sports journal, for instance, will enhance the effectiveness of the media tool.

Media advisory

The advisory entails invitation of the media to the team's event, through this the media will get first-hand information to use in the publishing. Under this, the journalist is allowed to make their own stories about the team based on their observations. The media advisory is a summary and always shorter in length and duration than a media release.


 The use of advisory mefia allows the journalist to create their own stories about the team. The journalists want their stories to sell and therefore they may invest much time and effort in developing the story about the team. Through this the information give out to the public about the team is more detailed and informative allowing the stakeholders to make the right decisions.
