Book Description

30 Jan 2013 027372133X 978-0273721338 2

Over the first decade of the 21st century the scale and importance of the commercial sport industry has increased dramatically and rapidly. This timely second edition of the ground-breaking text The Business of Sport Management has been comprehensively revised, updated and significantly expanded in scope to meet the needs of today’s sports management students, and equip future managers with the tools they need to succeed. 

 

Elegantly blending theory with practice, the text looks first at the distinctive context of sport organisations.  It then examines the sport management theories and practice within functional areas such as finance, HRM, marketing and strategy.  Finally it considers important issues such as risk management, sponsorship, retailing, social media, sports betting and more. Written with a thoroughly international perspective, this book is ideal for students of sports management on programmes of sports, leisure and business studies, and will also be of great interest to practitioners working in sport businesses.

Product Description

Review

"Eureka! A long overdue sports management publication which covers a wide range of issues and resists filling its pages with case studies from American sports that have little or no bearing outside the US."

"An impressive group of academics have produced one of the best sports management books so far. The book goes into great detail in a number of areas and is interspersed with humour to make otherwise dull subjects more entertaining. Readers are also challenged to give their interpretation of events."
Reviewer: Peter Miller, Soccer Consultant
