Subject outline

This subject examines the role of sponsorship in the continued survival of professional and amateur sport. It looks at how these partnerships must be designed to create win-win situations for all parties and how sport organisations (sponsees) must service this relationship. Students will be provided with the practical and theoretical knowledge to source funding (sponsorship and government) to support their organisational sport activities. Students will also gain hands-on experience preparing grant applications and sponsorship proposals and develop an appreciation of sponsorship theory and strategy as it applies to the competitive sport marketplace.
