The sports sector is growing exponentially all over the world. It is also a hugely global industry.
There is a double connection between sports and the world of marketing and sales. On the one hand, there are an increasing number of companieswhose business relates to sports, and which need an in-depth understanding of the right marketing and sales tools to achieve success in their competitive environment; and on the other hand, sports are by nature an excellent communications platform for companies in any economic sector, thanks to their extraordinary reach in the media and the values they transmit, and they can provide great added value to any company or brand associated with them.
Alongside more traditional marketing tools, concepts such as city marketing, community management of athletes and brands in social networks, new channels for exploiting sports rights, corporate social responsibility, and ever more varied forms of sponsorship define the profile of modern sports marketing.
Spain is one of the world centers of sports marketing and has some of the leading athletes and teams in the world’s most popular sports. In recent decades the country has also organized many world-level sports events, leveraging the impetus of the Barcelona Olympics. Meanwhile, some of the most important individual and group sports rights contracts involve Spanish agents.
