Helps WJAL Bring Jai-Alai
Back to Its


The World Jai-Alai League (WJAL) is bringing the legendary sport of jai-alai back to the forefront of global attention, starting right here in the Miami area. Their goal is to reclaim the excitement and enthusiasm that used to accompany the thrilling game and bring back the popularity it once had at the local, regional, national, and international levels.


Establishing credibility and building visibility is always a challenge with any new venture. WJAL’s teams were solely focused on developing local operations in Miami, recruiting athletes, and fine-tuning their game plan — not growing their fanbase. But they needed a way to reach new audiences and attract live viewers, which is where Heyday Marketing came in.

At the local level, their short-term goal in partnering with us was to increase weekly attendance at their Friday night matches by at least 300 people to generate more revenue and excitement.

  • Engage and convert potential sports wagering fans into long-term, loyal followers
  • Increase online visibility through dynamic and impactful social media marketing
  • Showcase the sport in its best light to give it a fresh start
  • Gain traction with domestic and international audiences unfamiliar with the game


The Heyday team thoroughly analyzed the situation and developed a comprehensive, holistic strategy that included:

With our various campaigns running simultaneously, Miami-Dade county was buzzing about jai-alai. Compared to past matches in their inaugural campaign, the stands were filled with a noticeably younger crowd and family-oriented audience. The results from our campaign included:
