  • JTA: First Consultancy to Adopt .Sport Domain Name


    Gold Coast, Australia, 09 May 2019: JTA, the world’s leading independent international relations and communications consultancy in sport, has become the first international consultancy to adopt the .Sport domain name, becoming:


    The .Sport domain name has been established by JTA client GAISF (Global Association of International Sports Federations) and is exclusively granted to members of the whole sporting community.

    It is an opportunity for sports stakeholders to mark themselves out as a reputable and trusted member of the sports landscape. The domain is a clear endorsement of each organisation, as GAISF only accepts applications from credible sporting bodies.

    Commenting on this important development in the company’s evolution during SportAccord 2019 in Gold Coast, Founder and Chairman of JTA, Jon Tibbs, said:

    “This is an important milestone for JTA. Adopting the .Sport domain name enables us to demonstrate that sport is the centre of our universe. It comes at a time when our offices in the Olympic host cities of Los Angeles (JTA Pacific) and Beijing (JTA China) are beginning to flourish and our digital and graphic design agency (JTA Design) continues to secure iconic assignments in sport.”

    All the JTA companies will begin to use the new .Sport domain designation with immediate effect. However, the previous designation of will continue to function during a transition period.

    JTA has developed a broad range of communications and brand-building services for clients across the Olympic Movement and wider sporting world. JTA clients include the world governing bodies for volleyball (FIVB), aquatics (FINA), basketball (FIBA), biathlon (IBU), tennis (ITF) and taekwondo (World Taekwondo). JTA also works for various National Olympic Committees including Jordan, the Czech Republic and Turkey. JTA is also working for Lima 2019, the Organising Committee for the Pan-American Games, which are due to start on 26 July.
