Sports have grown and grown and now, they are considered one of the best business opportunity fields in the world. Easily one of the most loved industries in the world, there are lots of different career options you can take on if you want to become involved in sports. Being the sporting star might not be your aim but being part of running the events, growing the teams and being a part of the business itself are wide open for anyone. It all depends on what kind of role you’re asking for. Maybe you would like to be part of the administration team, work with other organizations to put matches on, discuss sponsorship deals with brands, host national and worldwide events like the World Cup and Olympics. Whatever you aim is, there is a ladder you have to climb first by getting involved at the ground level. Start off small and learn how to become better at a junior role and you can begin to be a professional in a particular sport.

The business end of things
Without a shadow of a doubt, sporting organizations have learned that they need business professionals as part of their administration offices. They don’t have to be lovers of the sport or even the team, but they need to use their skills they would otherwise use in a business context, for their teams. Take a look at the Jobs in Football to see where your skills might land you. For example, certain teams are looking for event staff, both in the hosting areas but also helping with ticket sales, marketing, venue collaboration and broadcasting network deals. There are more hands on positions like being part of the football coaching staff. Assistant to the Head Coach, nutritionist, physical therapist and other jobs are available. However for someone with a business mindset, you may wish to look for an advertising role for example.

New wave of marketing
With social media, sports have blown up larger than ever before. Now more than ever, sports teams are looking for professionals that can capture the attention of the loyal and casual viewer. They want marketing professionals that know how to use the emotional aspect of games and sports stars. If you can explain the journey of a person who has been through a tough time personnel, maybe they have lost someone close to them, are recovering from an injury and build up the excitement around this one personality and uplift their comeback and triumphs, you will have no problem working in sports as a business professional.

The ever important aspect
No professional sports team can last for long without good financial control. If you’re an accountant, a financial advisor, a risk assessment manager or perhaps a financial planner, then you can easily find a job in sports. Your title won’t change but the context of your job responsibilities will.

Starting off in sport as a professional is no problem at all. Sports teams are always looking for business-minded individuals to join their ranks and help grow their fan base and team image.

  • This is a great idea to start a career in sports. I didn’t believe it was feasible, but now I understand it can be accomplished. Indeed, I believe the sports sector is now the best sector that has had an impact on people. Now, I just need to be patient with that profession. Thank you!

  • I believe that the ability to talk to people and have them feeling engaged rather than patronised isn’t something you can learn. It’s a bit like being able to sing or play cricket. You can either do it, or you can’. Thank you for sharing.
