Ready, set, go! This SCCIJ webinar with Mr. Miguel Pazcabrales of the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), will address sports and its future prospects in the New Normal, not only from a spectator’s view, but also for sports organizations and companies involved in sports sponsorship.
The Covid-19 global pandemic has negatively impacted many industries in the world, sports not being an exception. The cycles of sports have been interrupted, changing the rhythm at which audiences and fans consume sports where billions of dollars have been retained by sponsors, media companies and agencies with the fear of not maximizing their investments as per the usual business cycles of sports. As we get closer to a new beginning in the cycle of sports; rightsholders, leagues and sports property owners have to reinvent and adapt the business to maintain the value and the attractiveness of sponsors. We will discuss some of those new ideas and strategies from an Sports International Federation point-of-view.
