March to the PBA World Championship Begins in Wichita

by PBA Editor October 6, 2002 19:00
For the first time in its 43-year history, the PBA Tour will add a new thread that will run through the entire season leading up to the Tour’s pinnacle event. Throughout the 2002-03 season, players will vie for eight coveted seeds in the Tour’s most prestigious and lucrative event, the season-ending 2003 PBA World Championship (Toledo, OH, March 3-9). The top eight bowlers heading into the tournament with the most season points will earn an automatic match play berth. These elite players will skip the 18-game qualifier and early elimination rounds and head straight for a reserved spot in the round of 16. The season’s best will then take on the eight remaining bowlers from the tournament’s previous elimination rounds in a best-of-five games format. The winners advance to the quarterfinals with a chance to crack the ESPN semifinal round. “This gives the PBA Tour a true suspenseful element leading up to the season-ending championship,” said PBA President/CEO Steve Miller. “Last year we set a defined season schedule for the first time in bowling. Now, the season is tied together by a common thread leading up to the World Championship title.” The 2002-03 PBA Tour season includes 22 tournaments (four majors) and runs from September-March. The U.S. portion of the schedule begins this week, Oct. 9-13, with the PBA Wichita (Kan.) Open at Northrock Lanes. ESPN will televise the finals live on Sunday, Oct. 13, from 1-2:30 p.m. (ET).

Seattle Agency Puts their Spin on the PBA

by PBA Editor October 6, 2002 19:00
Creature has just launched the Professional Bowlers Association’s (PBA) marketing campaign for the 2002-2003 season. This is PBA’s first-ever campaign with a uniform look and feel. The campaign, consisting of print, posters and collateral, focuses on the drama of the competition between two players as it relates to the quest for the championship. This is a new way to look at bowling that also serves to educate the audience to the new PBA, with its defined season and television deal with ESPN, higher purses for winners, and new tournament format. The work seeks to dimensionalize the players and make them familiar to audiences, while at the same time, enhance the image of professional bowling as a competitive sport. The campaign uses a tagline, “PBA Tour. Only one can win,” to set up the fact that the new PBA season culminates with their World Championship, helping to define the season by focusing on the ultimate goal. The first print ad in the campaign, “Ego,” depicts four professional bowlers, and the headline invites the reader to “Match the Player to the Ego.” Various egotistical statements follow. “Who’s the Man?” “I’m the greatest.” “Nothing can stop me.” “Say hello to the champion.” The other executions follow suit, humorously featuring theoretical duels between two players, highlighting personalities and professional rivalries. One execution shows bowlers Brian Voss and Norm Duke, with the headline, “ Friend or Foe? Nothing builds a relationship like the gift of an open frame.” A second execution depicts Pete Weber and Robert Smith on opposite sides of the layout, with the line,” I will not lose. I will not lose.” Followed by the question, “Which of the above statements are true?” The remaining execution shows Tommy Jones, a right-handed bowler and Parker Bohn III, a left-handed bowler, with the headline, “Right. Left. The pride of a dominant side lies in the balance.” “We felt this was a really strong strategic approach to solving the sterotype surrounding professional bowling,” said writer/creative director Jim Haven. “The drama is inherent when you know what is at stake. PBA Commissioner Steve Miller said it best – bowling isn’t about man against pin anymore, it’s about man against man.” Added Matt Peterson, art director/creative director, “And we feel that this creative logically and naturally serves as a platform to dimensionalzie the players while legitimizing them as athletes. Because in the end, it’s all about one man beating another.” The campaign breaks this week, and will run nationally through the duration of the season, which culminates in the end of March. Creature (www.creatureseattle.com) is the joint venture of Jim Haven and Matt Peterson. Creature, more often than not, resembles a traditional advertising agency, but can and will go beyond traditional definitions.
