Sports Facility Managers


The Department of Labor forecasts 7 percent employment growth for administration services managers through 2028, which is faster than the average for all occupations. The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on most industries, including sports facilities management. In 2020, most sports events have been cancelled, postponed, or resumed but with limited games and with few, if any, fans in the stands. In the arenas and other sports venues where practices and matches are resuming, managers must be sure the facilities adhere to the health and safety standards to protect the athletes, teams, and staff. Going forward, the post-pandemic employment outlook for sports facilities managers is good. In general, the future for facilities managers is much brighter than it is for those in other administrative services. This relatively young field is growing quickly and, especially in the private sector, is not as subject to cost-cutting pressures or as vulnerable to government cutbacks. Demand for jobs in sports administration is great, and the newer field of sports facility management is quickly catching up. Sports facility managers with knowledge of sustainable business operations and practices will also be in demand in the coming years.
