Sports Marketing
Marketing has become a vital part of sporting events in our country. When market researches use the four P’s to marketing; product, price, place and promotion they are more likely to be successful. NASCAR is a good example of a sporting event that spends a lot of money in market segmentation and marketing research. By doing so, NASCAR is able to find their target market and design their advertising for that particular market.
There are many marketing opportunities available for sporting venues. Often we will see commercials advertising the next competition day on television or local areas will advertise for their specific venue. We also see billboards, magazines and newspapers advertising an event or an athlete. There is a lot of money to be made in advertising. According to an article written by Nickels-McHugh-McHugh, NASCAR decided early on that corporate sponsorship was vital to long-term growth because market research showed that NASCAR fans are three times more likely to buy NASCAR sponsors’ products than fans of other sports. Using the four P’s to marketing will ensure a company can use best marketing strategies as possible.
Evaluating the product you are selling is the first step in marketing. You must have a product that people want and are willing to spend money. In sports, for example, the product is the sporting event. The product or event must be pleasing to the consumer so that they will continue to return. Then there is the price. The price must be set so the event will draw as many consumers as possible, but not so high, that few can attend. Determining the price can be a very tricky part to marketing, but it is a very crucial part of marketing. The third step to marketing is place. Choosing a place to hold the sporting event can make or break a business. The venue should be located…...

Athletics need to deal different people. a) Among team members Corporation is an essential element in team sport. Attitudes can follow after behavior, this means cooperative actions, such as those performed by people on sports teams, feed mutual liking. Such attitudes, in turn, promote positive behavior. Not only will people sometimes stand up for what they believe, they will also to believe in what they have stood up for.

Sport Obermeyer

...SPORT OBREMEYER Sport Obermeyer designs and sells high-end skiwear from Colorado. Their products are sold in US departmental stores and specialty ski shops. Most of its production is carried out in honk Kong and china by its partner, Obersport. Annual production capacity is approximately 200,000 units. The minimum production quantity in Hong Kong is 600 units and 1200 units in china. They earn a 24% profit on whole sale price on every product and losses 8% on discounted sales. There are many challenges strangling this company as they serve fashion wear which are highly unpredictable. They have long lead times due to uncertain forecasts and geographical distance. The life cycle of their products are short leaving no time for comfortable manufacturing process. They have a seasonal demand with most of their sales happening during one quarter of the year. In case of stock outs they lose their 24% margin and make 8% losses on over stocked goods or marked down prices. This results in high holding costs. This highly volatile demand requires them to produce in two phases. One batch of production is to be carried out based on initial forecast and the other batch after the las vegas event requiring highly flexible supply and manufacturing process. The following exhibit shows the demand forecasts for 20000 units.

Sport Management

... definition for the idea of sport management, but there are still two other sites to look at as well. The second site I looked in to was called Sport Business. Their version of sport management is stated in relation to their site, but is well said. Sport Business Group is driven by the belief that the sports industry is a business sector worthy of its own analysis, intelligence, trade media and B2B marketing services. It is our ongoing goal to maintain a position of leadership both within the industry and in representing the industry to the business community (SBG Companies Limited, 2013). I think this definition is short, sweet, and to the point. The last site we were asked to explore was the Athletic Business Magazine. I could not find a concrete definition of their version of sport management, but I did find out what they are about in promoting it. They stated that for decades, decision-makers in the multibillion-dollar athletic, fitness and recreation industry have regarded Athletic Business as their "must read" resource for the latest and best information available to help ensure their professional success (© Athletic Business Media Inc., 2013). Born 35 years ago as a magazine devoted to a sports industry just beginning to think of itself as an industry, Athletic Business has grown to become an internationally recognized multimedia brand. Athletic Business is read in print by more than 40,000 qualified subscribers (and tens of thousands more online) representing......

...An essay on Sport The issues involving Sport has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. I find my self constantly drawn back to the subject of Sport. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, there are just not enough blues songs written about Sport. It still has the power to shock those most reliant on technology, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of Sport. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues. Social Factors Comparisons between Roman Society and Medieval Society give a clear picture of the importance of Sport to developments in social conduct. I will not insult the readers inteligence by explaining this obvious comparison any further. The immortal and indispensable phrase ‘honesty is the best policy’ [1] created a monster which society has been attempting to tame ever since. Much has been said about the influence of the media on Sport. Observers claim it raises the question 'why?' Some analysts have been tempted to disregard Sport. I haven’t. It is intrinsically linked to adolescent inner acclimatisation. Economic Factors Increasingly economic growth and innovation are being attributed to Sport. We will study the Lead-a-Duck-to-Water model. For those of you unfamiliar with this model it is derived from the Three-Amigos model but with greater emphasis on the outlying gross national product.

Sport Leader

...Awrangzib Hashimi ST: Sports Facility Design & Mgt Professor Keith Bosley Choose an individual in sports who you think is a good leader and write two to three paragraphs about the type of leader they are and the characteristics that make them a good leader. A successful sport leader has the same positive characteristics as other good leaders. A sport leader obtains an expert skill level in their field and an enthusiastic understanding of their sport, other team leaders and coaches in other sports. Moreover, a sport leader possesses effective interpersonal skills of being able to communicate efficiently, motivate and appreciate his team members. Also, he must be responsible, flexible and patient while maintaining equal amount of integrity he expect from his team members and other sports leaders. In sports, typically the team leader is the coach, who is respected by other team members, not only because of his abilities and skills in sports but also for his individual qualities as a leader, such as responsibility, work ethic and attitude with team members. Julio Velasco is an Argentinean professional volleyball coach who had led the Italian men’s national team to many successes in international volleyball matches. Later, he became the coach for Italian women’s volleyball team. A few years ago on 2011 he has started his leadership duty with Iran men’s national team. He has been performing a successful rule and has a great impact on Iran’s volleyball success this year...

...Case Study What is the core role of lifesaving clubs and agencies? Its mission statement states in part that its role is ‘to lead, support, collaborate, with national and international organisations engaged in drowning prevention, water safety, water rescue, lifesaving, lifeguarding, and lifesaving sport’ ( What are their likely source of income, and why? Lifesaving clubs and agencies rely heavily on the supply of public funding by the government. The costs associated with the development of sport such as building or improvement of facilities is usually funded by the government. The government/State heavily funds lifesaving clubs and agencies. It is because the State believes that it can improve the well being of society by its various interventions. (Hoye, Russel. 2006, p. 20). This type of intervention falls under the neo-liberalism ideology. It was found that ‘neo-liberals believe government should not engage directly in most economic activity, but rather provide only base level infrastructure, legislative guidelines within which private business can thrive’ (Hoye, Russel. 2006, p. 27). How feasible would it to get the people being rescued to actually fund the operations of lifesaving clubs and agencies? It will not be feasible for the people being rescued to fund the operations because the cost of running the lifesaving clubs and agencies are huge. The amount of money channelled to the lifesaving clubs and agencies by the State to the...

...Barriers to participation for 3 target groups and all the stages of the sports participation pyramid I am going to explain the barriers to participation from 3 different target groups at each stage of the sport development pyramid. My 3 target groups are Over 50s, Women and Young people. Over 50s is a target group because there is more over 50s playing sport now than ever before, this is because people are living longer and wish to keep fit and active. Young people is a target group because if people can get young kids active and give them a chance to do sport at a young age then it is more likely that they will carry on with sport and go up through the sports participation pyramid. Women is a target group because although traditionally women participate less in sport, the number of women in sport has gone up in the past few years. From 2005 to 2008 the overall women participating in sport went up from 2.57 Million to 2.81 Million (12.3% increase). Also more women are playing male dominated sport like Rugby and Football. Target group 1 – Over 50s At the foundation stage for Over 50s there is not any facility’s that will teach the basic skills for a sport. For most sports such as Crown green Bowling participants will go straight into the participation stage. In the participation stage for Over 50s a barrier would be cost of travel. If a person cannot drive then the cost of the buss maybe too much and if it is too far to walk the participant may have to stop...

...Gameplay Association football is played in accordance with a set of rules known as the Laws of the Game. The game is played using a spherical ball (of 71 cm (28 in) circumference in FIFA play), known as the football (or soccer ball). Two teams of eleven players each compete to get the ball into the other team's goal (between the posts and under the bar), thereby scoring a goal. The team that has scored more goals at the end of the game is the winner; if both teams have scored an equal number of goals then the game is a draw. Each team is led by a captain who has only one official responsibility as mandated by the Laws of the Game: to be involved in the coin toss prior to kick-off or penalty kicks.[7] The primary law is that players other than goalkeepers may not deliberately handle the ball with their hands or arms during play, though they do use their hands during a throw-in restart. Although players usually use their feet to move the ball around, they may use any part of their body (notably, "heading" with the forehead)[8] other than their hands or arms.[9] Within normal play, all players are free to play the ball in any direction and move throughout the pitch, though the ball cannot be received in an offside position.[10] In typical game play, players attempt to create goal-scoring opportunities through individual control of the ball, such as by dribbling, passing the ball to a team-mate, and by taking shots at the goal, which is guarded by the opposing goalkeeper...

...david Ethics in Sport Part 1: Altitude Training Altitude training, also known as hypoxic training, involves exercising in, living in or otherwise breathing oxygen reduced air for the purpose of improved athletic performance, pre-acclimatization to altitude and/or physical wellness. Traditionally, individuals had to travel to or live at high elevations to obtain the benefits of this phenomenon. I already use something similar to that, the Elevation mask when I run and workout. That is the main thing you use for altitude training to improve your breathing. Part 2: Altitude Tents By sleeping in a tent at a simulated high altitude, you reduce the amount of oxygen you are able to breathe in, which forces the body to increase its red blood cell count. Then, when you train back at sea level, you are able to compete more effectively because a greater amount of oxygen is now being delivered to your muscles than before. They can be pretty expensive, ranging from $450 to $500 a month or you can buy for $4,000. I sure wouldn’t pay that much for that, I’ll just continue to use the Elevation Mask. Part 3: Erythropoietin Erythropoietin-Red blood cells are produced in the bone marrow (the spongy tissue inside the bone). In order to make red blood cells, the body maintains an adequate supply of erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone that is...
