Sport Product Includes: The sporting event Sporting goods Personal training Sports information
Sporting event is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the sport product. An intangible, perishable experience Example: The badminton game you played with your friends Saturday.

Third part of the sporting event is the facility or location where the event takes place.
Sporting goods make the games possible. These are the tangible, manufactured products sold and used within the sports industry. Equipment and clothing Accessory products Licensed merchandise Collectibles or memorabilia
Personal training is available to professionals and amateurs. Professionals attend pre-season training camps. Amateurs might go to a gym or health club. Children attend sports camps in the summer. Adults might take golf lessons before teeing off each season.

Marketing Other Goods or Services Through the Use of Sports Businesses use sport to market their product. A football scoreboard featuring the names of local businesses The businesses and their products are not related to football. Businesses use a sport specifically to market a certain good or service. Example: A 5k race to raise money for a charity attracts a lot of people and increases awareness of the good or service.
Marketing of Products to Sports The sport itself needs goods and services in order to operate. NIKE Uniforms for players Networks/channels to broadcast sport Soft drinks for arena or stadium Businesses that provide these products spend a lot of time and energy on marketing. These companies might offer lower prices, better service, faster delivery, and promotional assistance to get the business.
Marketing of Products to Sports Businesses market their products to local sports such as: Race tracks Bowling alleys Marinas Ski areas Many goods sold by these sports businesses are provided by other businesses.
The growth and marketing of the sports industry go hand in hand. They actually feed off one another. Product growth Marketing opportunities Sports product becomes more popular because of marketing, and marketing opportunities increase as the product grows. Some sport products would exist without marketing, but not on the same scale.
Sports marketing affects millions of people throughout the world from young children to senior citizens. Attendance at sporting events has increased dramatically in the last decade. Media coverage of these games has also increased. Almost any time of day or night television or radio stations broadcast some type of sporting event. Everything from traditional sports to windsurfing.
Sports marketing is good for you. Opportunity for employment increases as attendance and media coverage grows. Trainers Commentators Stadium workers Doctors/ Therapists Athletes Sports law
Sports marketing is good for you. Sports benefits those who participate either by playing or watching. Health benefits are an important part of participating. Recreation is another benefit. Sports provides a chance to play, have fun, and relax. Being entertained is a benefit that sports provides. Enjoying the excitement of competition and cheering for your favorite team makes you feel like part of the game.
Sports marketing is good for the local community. Major events have a significant impact on the local economy. People who travel to watch the game will stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, buy souvenirs, and visit other attractions. The money they spend benefits the local economy. People are attracted to a city for sports-related activities other than major league teams. These attract visitors at different times of the year, and those visitors spend money at local stores, hotels, and restaurants.
Sports has an impact on a citys image. When you think of Green Bay, Wisconsin you think of the Packers. They have a good reputation, have won three Super Bowls, and have had great coaches like Vince Lombardi. It can create a good image. It can also create a negative image.

Even small cities and towns benefit from the image of local sports activity. The Village of Islamorada in the Florida Keys is known for being the sportfishing capital of the world. Its also known for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Marketing is an enormous industry that might be hard to put into perspective. Identify and talk with a sports marketer in your community. Find out what sports product the person provides. Determine how much the product costs. Follow a process to see sports marketing in action:
Now, find out how to obtain the product. Think of how you learned about the product. Find out who the primary product users are. Put together all these pieces to obtain the overall picture of sports marketing.
Sponsorships are an important part of sports marketing. Money from sponsorships often helps sports organizations that are struggling to make ends meet. Think of what it means to a high school athletic department to: -Receive free uniforms -Have its stadium renovated and expanded All these companies want in exchange is to put their names on the scoreboard, program, or stadium.
Whats the problem, or is it a problem? What if the local company is a -beer or wine distributor? -nearby gambling casino? -a clothing manufacturer using child labor in foreign countries? Do any of these situations have an effect on sponsorships?
