About Us

Welcome to SPMA 👋

You might find that it’s difficult to find a job in sport management without proper guidance. Similarly, in order to stay at the top of your field, you must keep up with industry trends, sports business news and latest research. 

That’s where we come in.

What Is SPMA?

What does SPMA stand for?

SPMA stands for SPort MAnagement. It is pronounced SPEE-MA and we are the number one hub with all the latest news and updates for aspiring and long-term sport professionals.

Why did you create the SPort MAnagement (SPMA) Hub?

The sport management industry is booming around the world! 🌍 Look no further than a province in Canada for proof. In Ontario, Canada alone, there are over 15 college and university institutions with sport management programs, and that number continues to climb. That's JUST Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦. Similar numbers are seen in the United States 🇺🇸, Australia 🇦🇺, United Kingdom 🇬🇧, and across the world. Whether you’re looking for or have a job in sport management, get ready to get in on this fast-growing field and dominate it.

Other Questions

I heard SPMA is going to be hosting events. Is this true?

 SPMA is involved in a number of sport industry events. However, we do not run them ourselves.

…YET

SPMA ran and operated events are definitely something we are looking to do… Obviously, running events are in the cards for us. Just not quite yet! So, like we always do, we’ll let you know when we have some news to share about original, SPMA-ran events. If you’re interested in this aspect of SPMA, be on the lookout in mid-to-late 2020 for what’s to come on this front.

I'm hoping SPMA has postings for sport industry jobs and internships. Does it?

At this time, we do not offer job postings for sport organizations looking to hire employees or interns. There are a number of other websites that do though. We believe job postings should be curated neatly, accurately and methodically. Therefore, we suggest using Indeed and LinkedIn to seek out sport industry opportunities.
