Rapid growth in the volume and variety of sports publications, sports-related internet sites, and enhanced mass media exposure of sports events and activities is resulting in an increase in the need for individuals with a knowledge of sport communications/media.

Global industrialisation, urbanisation and lifestyle and demographic changes mean that governments and public agencies worldwide are likely to increasingly use sport as a tool for social policy and economic and social development. The management and administration of these programmes and interventions require specific knowledge and management skills.

These developments ensure that the sports industry continues to be a significant and diverse industry in the future, sustaining exciting and satisfying career opportunities for years to come.
