Sports Marketing presents this field as a new discipline, helping readers gain a stronger understanding of how to apply marketing strategies and tactics within the sports marketing environment.Dr. Fullerton crafted this new text to present the discipline of sports marketing in two broad perspectives. The first part of the text (Chapters 3 - 14) deals with the idea of the marketing of sports products, increasing media audiences, increasing live attendance, the selling of sports-related products, and more. The second part of the text (Chapters 15 - 22) examines using a sports platform as a foundation for the marketing of non-sports products, including examples such as Tiger Woods' endorsement of Tag Heuer watches and Coca-Cola's sponsorship of soccer's World Cup.This is not simply a basic marketing text using sports examples. This new title fills a gap for this newly recognized course area by presenting a strong business perspective through its content. It looks at the economic impact of the industry and identifies an array of career opportunities for students interested in sports marketing. There is comprehensive coverage of how sports are used as a marketing platform and an abundance of real-world national and international examples to support the material.Fullerton, Sam is the author of 'Sports Marketing', published 2006 under ISBN 9780073128214 and ISBN 007312821X.
