Daniel Toth's curator insight, November 11, 2013 4:38 PM

1. I learned that the MLS is gaining popuilarity throughout the US. I always assumed that the MLS was considered to be a low ranked league, but I was wrong. Being ranked the 7th best league in the world by a London magazine is a big deal. Also, I learned that the MLS wasnt the first soccer league in America, but that the North American Soccer LEague was previously the longest running league from 1968- 1984. This suprised me because I played soccer my whole life, and played high school and club soccer, and never once have i heard of this league. 

2. Information I found interesting was Robbie Kien earns a third of the LA Galaxy's salary. Also, the minumum wage in the MLS is almost $5,000 lower than the English Premieir League. And that the MLS came in third for fans attending games, behind the NFL and MLB.

3. I selected this article beacuse I have been playing soccer since kindergarden and have competed at all sorts of levels of competition in soccer. Plus, I would like to see soccer get bigger in the US, so this article caught my eye. 

4. This information will help me in the sport management industry by showing me that soccer is a growing sport, and with a growing industry, there will be jobs available within the next couple of years. This article makes me realize that there is hope in an league that is seen to be dying  in the US, and that it has the potential to grow into one of the major sports in the country. It also helps by showing me that with the right management, a sport has the chance to grow into a major source of income.

Jesse Zubren's insight:
I learned from this article that Sponsorships are huge in the Sport Management world. When you sponsor an athlete, he has to wear or promote your company whenever he is doing something. This is great for advertising and getting fans to buy your product.One thing I found interesting from this article was that the prices of these sponsorships are very high. I understand these players are high profile athletes, but $250 million is a lot of money for a player to wear or promote your company. Something I found educational is that Sport management companies can cash in on this sponsorship for example the Dublin Sport Management Company.I selected this article because sponsorships are a big deal in the Sport world. The goal of a company is to promote your company so what better way then to have a high profile athlete like Rory Mcilroy, a fantastic golfer, represent your company.This information will help me in the sports management industry because in order to get your company to people you have to promote it. A smart idea is to use a popular athlete to do this because they get the most attention. Fans think that if so and so wears it, it must make me a better athlete. I certainly fall under this category when it comes to baseball equipment/apparel.

Dylan Wasserman's curator insight, September 26, 2013 8:28 PM

This article is about how the Dublin sports management company has gained a lot of money since signing Rory Mcllroy to their company, giving them one of the biggest names in the sport. Their profits since signing the superstar golfer has made them increase 165% over one year. I learned that in this industry having a big name or big sponsor could make a very significant impact on your company in the long and short term. I chose this article because it showed how much a company’s profit could increase with the help of big names. This will help me in the sports management industry because it shows me how a small company can become one of the largest with the signing of a either a big name or company.

9/11 Securities

 

One article that a chose was the effects of 9/11 on professional stadiums. In the article, I learned that Busch Stadium, home of the St Louis Cardinals, has made major safety upgrades since the 9/11 attacks. The stadium has added 5 times more security cameras and created a buffer zone so automobiles cannot drive directly into the stadium.Some information that I found interesting was that Busch Stadium is not the only stadium doing this upgrade. All professional Venues across the country are revamping their security. As a fan of multiple sports, I feel much safer attending events. I also found this article educational. I learned that these venues aren’t stopping here. They are going to continue to upgrade security until that cant anymore.I selected this article because the 9/11 attacks played a big role in my life. The attacks happened less then 30min away from my town. When it happened I was scared, confused, and didn’t know what to do. After reading about these security upgrades, I feel much safer attending games at large venues.This article will help me in the sports management industry because the industry has many parts to it. Yes, there is the business side of it, but a goal of the organization is to get positive feedback from the consumer. If they don’t feel safe, they’re not going to come back. As an organization, you have to make sure that the fan is feeling safe and secure.

Five Reasons the NFL is More Popular Than The NBA

Five Reasons the NFL is More Popular Than The NBA | Sport Management | Scoop.it

"The NFL season is going to open this weekend. [ed. True when the question was sent.  It has opened now.]  Every year at this time I wish it was basketball instead.  I know I'm a weird basketball junkie but my question is why more people aren't!  I think basketball is way better than football but most of America disagrees.  The NFL is everything here.  I assume since you write about the NBA you agree with me that basketball is the better game.  So why do so many people love football more?" http://bit.ly/17WBWOI

Jesse Zubren's insight:

NFL vs. NBA

 

I learned that the NFL is more popular then the NBA. I agree with this article because the anticipation is much greater in the NFL. When you are a fan of a basketball team, which I am, you think about games like this, “oh well we lost, we still have 81 more games to do something.” In the NFL each and every game means so much. People have friends and family over their respective houses for Sundays just to watch football. If you did that for basketball, those people wouldn’t leave your house…1 thing I found interesting from this article is that people love anticipation. Fans would rather watch 16 games the whole season and be very into those 16 then watch all 82 games not as intense. Some information that I found to be educational is that NFL is more convenient then the NBA. The average fan doesn’t have time to watch games during the week so having NFL games on Sunday is the perfect convenience for them.I selected this article because I am a big NBA and NFL fan. I support both sports and keep up with what is going on in their respective leagues. I agree with the statements in this article because following the NBA is more time consuming then the NFL. Something new happens in the NBA while in the NFL it is a weekly thing.This information will help me in the sport management industry because to make money in this industry, you have to have to consumer be interested in what you are selling. If the consumer isn’t interested your sales are going to go down. This is why the NFL is very successful. The NFL has the highest TV ratings because it is way more convenient to watch then the NBA.
