With a trio of options for readers, the various SportsPro Media publications offer different angles in sports industry coverage.
SportsPro magazine serves as the flagship. The monthly publication focuses on sponsorship and financing of sports on an international level. In 2002, the SportsPro team launched BusinessF1, which concentrated on Formula One racing but as more subscribers from the general sports world signed on, SportsPro Magazine was launched.
SportsProMedia.com has the advantage of covering breaking sports deals on a daily basis with updates as needed. The site aims to cover every sports deal worth $100,000 (U.S.) or more as well as many smaller deals. The site also offers some analysis and opinion.
With more than 40,000 e-mail addresses signed up, the SportsPro Daily Deal newsletter takes the daily sports industry news and packages it in a concise format for readers looking to start their day with all of the latest sports industry news.
According to SportsPro, its publicatioins attempt to find out the facts in sports industry news and then explain the numbers behind the deals. The publication relies on expert writers who understand sports marketing and sponsorship business.
Published in London, England, the SportsPro publications are international in focus, examining sports business throughout the world.
Like many industry magazines, the subscription rate for SportsPro Magazine is steep at $199 (U.S.) a year. But the magazine can certainly deliver information that would not be readily available anywhere else.
The magazine subscription includes some nice selling points in making previous issues available to subscribers. Each year a binder is supplied to store all of the year’s magazines.
If you are a student and the subscription price or the subscription cost is too high, schools with sports management programs typically have the magazine available.
