Sports have been the most popular form of recreation for people since time immemorial. The money made in the sport business from each league is ranging from 280 million dollars to yearly revenue of nine billion dollars (2012 Statistic Brain Research Institute). Sport leagues are being marketed more now than they were before in many ways like other major companies are. Leagues, organizations, and athletes are globalizing their trade and further increasing popularity in other parts of the world (Froetschel). Sports are becoming a growing business in America’s market because of the revenue it has produced for our economy, the marketing aspect in which it promotes fair play and sportsmanship, and, the globalization of sports is giving organizations and leagues a way to promote themselves in foreign countries.
According to the book Principles and Practice of Sport Management the definition of revenue is defined as money that is made or paid to a business or organization (Masteralexis, Barr and Hums). As of 2011 over 414 billion dollars have been spent in sports and the number is increasing rapidly (Masteralexis, Barr and Hums). Alone in college sports revenue has exceeded twelve billion dollars in 2011 alone. Big time athletic programs were spending anywhere from 45 million dollars to 126 million dollars, and generating revenue from numbers as low as 68 million dollars to 150 million dollars, making the profit anywhere from thirteen million dollars to up to twenty-seven million dollars (Karol). Revenue is being produced rapidly throughout the sport leagues and organizations. In spectator sports, revenue is generated from ticket sales, merchandise sales, media contracts, and sponsorships, and in non spectator sports the revenue can be generated through memberships, fees, and even equipment sales. Organizations generate funds and how these funds get allocated and spent…...

Sports, Media, and the Fans: the Business of Selling Sports

...12/11/13 Sports, Media, and the Fans: The Business of Selling Sports The relationship between sports and the media has evolved drastically thanks in part to the proliferation of electricity and its resulting technology. This relationship has now become the “defining commercial and cultural connection for both industries at the beginning of the 21st century. The media has transformed sports from an amateur pursuit into a hyper-commercialized industry, while sports have delivered massive audiences and advertising revenues to the media.”1 This symbiotic relationship has taken many shapes throughout the years, and each evolution in sports broadcasting has the intent of constructing larger audiences and markets to create higher revenues no matter the medium. In the long run, the only real loser in the sports broadcasting realm is the obsolete medium. As technology has evolved, the way in which sports have been presented has followed suit. “Over the course of the twentieth-century sport was transformed from a typically ad hoc unregulated amateur activity to one driven by professional standards and accountability at all levels.”2 This change came slowly at first, and has advanced rapidly over the past few decades. Now, due in part to advanced broadcasting techniques, watching live events and highlights of the day’s games can be brought to our fingertips with relative ease.

...Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals. Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee (through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1] Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner. Winning can be determined by physical events such as scoring goals or crossing a line first, or by the determination of judges who are scoring......

Sports Business in National Women's Football League

...Fabiel Ortiz June 8, 2015 NWFL As the new commissioner of the National Women’s Football League or NWFL, I am considering structuring the NWFL as a single entity rather than as a traditional league such as the National Football League (NFL) or the Major League Baseball (MLB). Traditional structures are nonprofit incorporated or unincorporated associations of clubs, where each member club has separate as well as independent ownership of said club. Depending on which sport the club is in, there will be different rules concerning club ownership. There are advantages as well as disadvantages to being a traditional structure. The main advantage of a traditional structure is that it’s promise for potential profits for anyone who wants to make an investment. The main disadvantage of a traditional structure is the potential liability of the necessary agreements among the owners in that they go by “for the good of the league as a whole.” Single entity structure is different than the traditional structure. In a single entity structure, teams argue that they are a single entity because it offers a league-generated entertainment product rather than a collection of individual entities in an economic competition with one another (Sharp). There have been cases about single entity structures. One case was when a group of soccer players from the MLS sued the league. The players stated that the MLS used the single entity structure as an attempt to restrain any trades by limiting economic......

... How Sports Evolved Recreation Programming Professor Newton 05/10/2013 Whether you have engage in sports in your leisure time, watch as a spectator or played on a professional level sports are major source of entertainment in the world. The earliest historical account of sports date all the way backs to BC time. A sport is defined as an activity involving physical or mental exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another. The ten most popular sports in the world are Football/ Soccer, cricket, tennis, hockey, baseball, table tennis, volleyball, rugby, and golf. In the United States motor sports, pro- wrestling, and martial arts are also popular. Sports are usually governed by rules and regulations to ensure fair competition and ensure the adjudication of a winner though fairness was not always a common practice especially in the ancient world. The history of sport can teach us about the social changes with society. In ancient times it was not uncommon for humans to die during sport events. For at least seven hundred years entire villages participated in violent combat sports such as fencing and jousting. The Romans were especially known for this with the gladiatorial games and chariot racing. These types of sports would almost always leave an opponent seriously or fatally injured. In ancient Greece most sports took place during the funeral games during the Mycenaean period. Such games have been described in Greek mythology like the Iliad......

...SUNYIT Human Resource Management MGT 318 Professor N. Laino Leadership Jeff Albright April 30, 2014 In the waning seconds of Game 6 during the 1998 NBA Finals, Michael Jordan found himself with the ball after stealing it from Karl Malone. Down by one, and with just 5.2 seconds left on the clock, Jordan rose up for a jumper that would end up being the winning points of the game. This win would earn Michael Jordan his sixth NBA championship. With every successful championship win, there is a leader who helped lead the franchise. Just as experienced leadership translates to success on the playing field, experienced leadership is essential in the business world. Leadership is defined as “the use of power and influence to direct the activities of followers toward goal achievement. That direction can affect followers’ interpretation of events, the organization of their work activities, their commitment to key goals, their relationship with other followers, and their access to cooperation and support from other work units” (McGraw 418). Often times, people who are leaders are people of power; it’s how these leaders use their power to get followers to achieve goals. Someone who is powerful is often known for their ability to influence the behavior of others. In the workforce, most leaders are managers. There are three organizational forms of power that managers can use to influence employees: legitimate power, reward power, and coercive power. Legitimate power...

...elected to host such mega event. Why should countries compete to host this event? There could be numerous reasons why a number of countries are keen on hosting World Cup, but the most compelling is the promise of an economic and social windfall. Soccer is one of the sports which people tend to identify themselves with. It has gained popularity owing to its impacts on the players, followers, states and other stakeholders. Currently, the game is estimated to have the highest number of followers than any other sport. Due to its vast effects, Soccer World Cups have gained popularity in the past two decades. For the previously held World Cups, great focus has been on social and economic effects. There numerous articles that have been written about the positive and negative effects of World Cups especially to the host countries. Before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, it was estimated that it would improve the region’s economy by about 0.5 % per year (The Economist, 2010). South African’s economy was estimated to experience 3% annual growth hence the impact of World Cup was definitely a huge chunk. The economic impact of World Cup seems to dominate news headlines in the country and around the world. The sport has both short term and long term economic effects. It is often assumed that the host countries enjoy huge profits. Existing research and statistics on both social and economic impacts of World Cups, however, are often based on estimations made by financial and......
