What is Sports Marketing?

Sports Marketing is one of the fastest growing business fields. It is a broad title that refers to all marketing activities that involve sport. Sports Marketing includes marketing sports and all activities related to the development and execution of strategies designed to bring sports products and experiences to consumers. Sports Marketing also includes marketing through sports, which refers to firms’ activities who use sports to reach their key customers in order to sell non-sports products, such as automobiles, beer, or snack foods. Thus, career opportunities include positions with teams and sports organizations as well as major corporations. An internship with a professional team or a sports company during their college years is a good start.
