Market Insights

Improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of teams and individual athletes has big implications as sports-related activities and events have become a major industry in the last few decades. Professional sports in particular have become a big business with the asset value of major teams at well over $1 billion each, generating triple-digit millions in revenue annually.

For example, the New England Patriots (American) football team is valued at roughly $3.8 billion, and generates over $500 million in total revenue annually. With about $103 million in revenue due to gate receipts, it is clear that a large portion of professional sports teams rely on non-venue related revenue including sponsorship, media rights, and merchandising. With the level of financials involved in a given organization, AI in the sports market is a meaningful investment for most team owners.

Sports at the Olympic, professional, and collegiate levels has become very data-driven as decisions ranging from recruitment and training to strategy and in-game tactics rely upon statistics and a dynamic set of variables including personnel, game conditions, and scenarios. Would be Olympians depend on sponsors, trainers, and coaches for major funding and support.

Sponsorship is a multi-million investment for each athlete, underscoring the need to make the best decisions possible for sovereign nations and companies involved in deciding who will be developed with the intent of representing a country in a given sport and sporting event for the Olympics. Wise implementation of AI in the sports market represents a means of sponsoring countries, companies, and wealthy benefactors to maximize their investment in the best world athletes.

At the collegiate level, a great deal is at stake in terms of recruiting athletes to become professionals. There is also great importance for National Collegiate Athletic Association division IA teams who vie for various milestones such as winning seasons, division leadership, league championships, playoff appearances, and championships.

Much is at stake from an alumni goodwill perspective, which translates into donations for sporting programs, which funds university and college development. AI in the sports market at the collegiate level provides this type of indirect benefit as college sports programs must be careful to not step over the line in terms of rules regarding financial benefits to players.
