Synopsis : Book by
From Booklist: Sports Market Place Directory has a 24-year history. Grey House is the new publisher and has produced an excellent edition. Ten chapters track 103 sports, from soccer and football to judo and yachting. Chapters include "Single Sports," "Multi Sports," "Media," "Sports Sponsors," "Agencies," "Events, Meetings, and Trade Shows," "Professional Services," "College Sports," "Manufacturers and Retailers," and "Facilities." Chapters, arranged by topic, begin with an alphabetical index of organizations, teams, or businesses. Entries include address, phone, fax, Web site, e-mail, key personnel, and detailed corporate data on more than 13,000 organizations and businesses.
The "Single Sports" and "Multi Sports" chapters provide an overview of sports teams and organizations from professional and Olympic organizations to youth clubs and Halls of Fame. The "Events, Meetings, and Trade Shows" chapter provides event dates for 2004-2005. In addition to mainstream events like the U.S. Open and the World Cup are smaller events like Skateboarding's Armageddon Cup, the Air Force Marathon, and the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo. "Professional Services" lists sports medicine specialists, agents, attorneys, recruiting services, and more. In "College Sports," 1,584 college associations, athletic conferences, NAIA, and NCAA organizations are described, along with colleges and universities that offer degrees in sports management. Individuals needing to purchase table-tennis balls, lacrosse goal cages, or in-line skates can browse the "Manufacturers and Retailers" chapter alphabetically, by sport, or using the brand-name index for more than 1,700 products and services. On a larger scale, the "Facilities" chapter contains the seating capacity and tenants (sports teams) of hundreds of stadiums, arenas, and tracks. Companies that support sports facilities, ranging from security, vending and concession, sound and video, ticket services, and architecture and design, are included.
Besides a cumulative entry index, Grey House offers a 280-page "Executive Index," a geographic index, and individual chapter indexes. The directory, which is also available in CD-ROM and online versions, is highly recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with sports management programs or a strong interest in athletics.
