Though jobs in the sports industry might seem to be plentiful, it is a very competitive field. Divided into ten sections, this industry contains thousands of jobs in, sporting events, trade shows and meetings, sport sponsors, sport related media, sport facilities, sport retailers and manufactures, and professional sport services.

This industry in particular has a large turnover, a complex infrastructure, and an influence on many people’s lives via the media and participation. To completely understand the nature of the sports industry, one must know that it is composed of different components:

Different Components in the Sports Industry

To know every section of the sports industry, you must understand the type of activities that take place and the respective organizations that provide them. For instance, if you are planning to get involved with sporting goods, you should know the different types of goods that are available through specialist equipment manufacturers and high end retailers, plus names of the various companies involved.

Likewise, to seek a job in sports development, you should be aware of what “sports development” is and the various jobs available for sports development officers, as well as the organizations that employ them, like the local authorities and charities governing bodies of different sports.

In general, people take it for granted that jobs are restricted within the sports industry. However, there are many other opportunities available. A job in the sports industry could range from that as a professional athlete, to a ball girl/boy, to a general manager of a professional sports team.

Hello there,


I'm writing to you because I just discovered a project that is totally amazing!


The Cofounder and former CEO of Priceline, Jeff Hoffman who just spoke at the UN yesterday about his area of expertise which is entrepreneurship is now the official spokesperson and advisor on the kulaBrands™ team.


Anyone who sees this has the opportunity to be a part of a grassroots movement called kulaBrands™, which has the very real potential to become the premier launchpad for creating the next household name brands of the future.


Here's the 2 minute snapshot of our community project:


kulaBrands™ is a unique patent pending business model, which enables creative and talented, artists, inventors, and authors to partner with a community of likeminded people, who will support them in transforming their visions into reality.


There are THREE Key areas to focus on, in order for any project to be truly successful: Funding, Marketing and Sales.


Our business model, provides the Platform, for Ordinary people, and home based entrepreneurs, to assist project creators, in ALL THREE of these Key areas.


Funding, is dramatically more accessible now, through the mechanism of reward-based crowdfunding.


Relevant market exposure, is achieved by a hybrid, of our engaged community members, and our At-Will Automated social media Publishing software.


Sales revenue is driven by our highly incentivised community, through tried and true affiliate commission programs, utilizing high converting sales pages, as well as word of mouth advertising for success in both on and offline sales channels.


This allows us to Utilize the 300 Billion Dollar Direct Sales Industry to Leverage the Power of the 26 TRILLION Dollar Global RETAIL Market in order develop these projects into International Brands.


Technology today, is facilitating greater individual social reach and leverage, and when used to its full advantage, provides a Blue Ocean of opportunity, in which to monetize their activities. This will make it easier, faster, and more likely that a project will have a successful launch into the marketplace.


It is well known, that royalties are one of the ideal revenue sources in the world.

However, until now, royalties have been available only to a small segment of the population. The kulaBrands™ model is opening up an opportunity for large-scale collaboration, in generating royalty income for the masses.
