Victories aren’t yet filling Fenway Park again for the Red Sox - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Victories aren’t yet filling Fenway Park again for the Red Sox - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management | Scoop.it
The Boston Red Sox were the best team in baseball last week, but paid attendance in April at Fenway Park , where the team recently saw a nearly 10-year sellout streak end, struggled to crack 30,000 even when the sun shined.
Cameron Corey's insight:

The average attendance at Fenway Park has gone down dramatically in the last few years. After a tough season last year attendance in the current season has seen the sellout streak from 2003 come to an end in 2013. The article highlighted a number of reasons for the drop, and several ways fenway executives are trying to bring the crowds back to boston. The poor season the team had last year is being felt this year. If the Sox can continue this run of winning games then hopefully the crowds will return next year. In the meantime the stadium has lowered beer prices but they have left their ticket prices the highest in baseball, averaging $53.38 a seat, higher than the Yankees. This article highlighted some of the troubles that a local proffessional team are going through and some of the ways they are trying to combat it. I believe this information will be very usefull to me in the future because in my expected career path there will undoubtably be times when the number of tickets sold or viewership needs to increase and these types of articles add a lot of insight into how you could solve those problems.

ESPN signs radio deals with five NFL teams - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

ESPN signs radio deals with five NFL teams - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management | Scoop.it
ESPN is getting into the Sunday afternoon NFL business this season, thanks to deals ESPN Radio cut with five NFL teams .
Cameron Corey's insight:

ESPN has bought the rights to radio broadcasting of five NFL teams. this is a signifigant event because it marks ESPN getting into a new market that they had not been in a competator before. I though it interesting that for ESPN to broadcast a game they have to negotiate with the broadcaster of the oposing team. This is significant because unless the two competators work together neither of them would be allowed to bradcast the game. This article appeared to me as a good source of information to begin learning about sponsors and agreements between athletic organizations and coorperations. This information will undoubtably useful in the future because it will have given some insight into the types of agreements i hope to help negotiate in the future.

Apparel partners dress up athletic complexes - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Apparel partners dress up athletic complexes - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management | Scoop.it
A walk through the University of Southern California’s John McKay Center reveals more than the Trojans’ rich athletic history. It also tells the visitor a lot about USC’s association with Nike.
Cameron Corey's insight:

This article highlights the growing relatonship between collegiate sports and their apparel partners. The new looks that many big colleges like USC and Texas A&M are getting for their athletic facilities are coming from these sponsors. The fact that colleges like this are getting such dramatic facelifts from their sponsors speeks wonders for the types of economic relationships that colleges now have with these apparel and equipment manufacturers. I selected this article becuse of the information it presented about Advent, a small design firm, who is responsible for designing all of the complexes. This was interesting to me because of the large scale projects this company is working on, even though they are a small company. This information is useful to me because it is showing me in part how things like sponsorships and equipment deals can grow and become such an important part of an organization.
