In this field, projects and data flows are carried out to develop sport activities, both from a commercial and social point of view.The main goal of sport administration is to achieve management, sales and revenue objectives through the best organization. An equally onerous task of this sector is also the management of human resources to obtain maximum performance from them.Managing the Sport FacilityThe pandemic has also accentuated the importance of these activities, especially paying attention to safety regulations, quotas - which may remain mandatory in some areas regardless of health emergencies - and energy saving.This area of specialization, within sport management, is responsible for the direction, organization and internal and external management of all types of sport centers and institutions. The main figure for this activity is the sport manager.Sport ManagerThe sport manager is responsible for the professional management of a sport organization, be it a sport company or organization, a sport facility or a sporting event or competition. Unfortunately it cannot be linked to a specific academic qualification but certainly many academic and professional profiles can access this profession.The sport manager is actually required to have a series of technical, practical but also theoretical and administrative skills, ranging in various sectors; this mix of skills is perhaps almost unique as a professional profile: one must be able to know and manage professional sport, fitness, event organization, facility management, adventure company, sport tourism, consulting and marketing, which undoubtedly makes it difficult driving it into a single area of knowledge.Sport and Fitness MarketingSport marketing is an exponentially growing trend: it strengthens the corporate image and the links between them and society. With sport marketing, sport entities, products, professionals or services are promoted through different strategies and specific actions; digital communities can also be created to create an emotional bond and generate a sense of belonging or pride of customers and athletes in society.Specific activities may also arise, managed by the marketing consultant, with the aim of promoting sporting events, products or athletes. All obviously regulated by the laws of marketing, of the market and, last but not least, by the rules of social marketing.Technology for Sport EnvironmentThe fitness and sport market in general has experienced a very important recession that needs a rapid recovery in the next months, and the habits of the population have changed forever due to the situation experienced with the lockdown and the fear of contagion.Now the sport manager needs access control, online sales and reservation, payments, accounting, communication with subscribers and much, much more, with professional software systems.
