What Is Sports Management?

Sports Management is the study of planning, supervising and organizing various sporting activities like international and domestic tournaments. A course in sports management inculcates leadership qualities in an individual and helps him to coach, manage and train sportsmen coming from various fields of sporting activity. India as a nation is a breeding ground for sports, and now with a growing number of sports leagues coming up for a wide range of sports, such as Indian Premier League, Hockey Premier League, Indian Super league, Pro Kabaddi league, etc. opportunities in this sector abound.
While most people who dream of a career in sports wish to represent their country on the field at national and international tournaments, playing a sport is not the only way to be a part of it. There are others who have the requisite knowledge and understanding of the game but work behind the scene to organize matches, monitor team finances, negotiate contracts of athletes, etc. All in all, sports managers are required to manage all the key aspects related to the business and governance of sports at all levels.
