Then, nine months later in October, the San Francisco Giants earned their second World Series trophy in three years. In between the two “giant” victories, the Miami Heat took home the NBA Championship after beating out the Oklahoma City Thunder.

5 Ways Aspiring #SportsBiz Professionals Can Better Use 30 Minutes Of Their Day

#sportsbizA few weeks ago, my wonderful mother pointed out this great quote from Jo Oz. It goes a little something like this. “The best moves in life are made in silence. Don’t talk about it. Just do it and let them talk about it. Failure talks. Success walks.”

This applies to all industries and across so many different landscapes. For aspiring #sportsbiz professionals, though, it’s a great quote to live by as well — and it sparked this blog post.

Emirates At The Top Of International Sport Sponsorships

Arsenal-EmiratesWith the addition of Formula One racing to its portfolio Emirates has become one of the widest sponsors in international sport. The Dubai-based airline’s sponsorship deals have hit 172 million pounds per year according to Sheikh Ahmed, uncle of Dubai’s ruler.

Emirates became a global partner for Formula One this week, signing a five year agreement for branding at 15 races this year, which is worth 125 million pounds alone.

New York Red Bulls To Sell Tickets Via Facebook

NY Red BullsThe Major League Soccer side are the first professional team to allow fans to purchase match day tickets through a bespoke Facebook ticketing app. Not only can fans buy their tickets, but they can also reserve seats for friends and family, so should you want to sit together, the system will reserve the seats nearby and message friends/family with the option to buy their reserved seats.

‘NCAA’ Cover Vote Down To Eight Athletes

NCAAAfter 10 weeks of fans voting for their favorite universities to advance, EA Sports finally revealed the eight athletes who have the chance to represent those schools and appear on the cover of “NCAA Football 14.”

The candidates are Alabama’s Eddie Lacy; Florida State’s E.J. Manuel; Georgia’s Jarvis Jones; Michigan’s Denard Robinson; Notre Dame’s Tyler Eifert; Ohio State’s John Simon; Oregon’s Kenjon Barner; and Texas A&M’s Ryan Swope.
