An introduction to the theory and practice of sports marketing, with particular emphasis on the New Zealand situation.
Sports, recreation and leisure play a large part in people's lives, and as a consequence, it is a huge global industry that employs a large number of people and has a significant economic impact. The marketing of such activity has increasingly become a specialised field in its own right. The industry is growing rapidly following the global changes in lifestyle trends, and therefore, there are growing job opportunities for marketers in this field.
