There are two significant trends happening in professional sports right now, and it’s truly amazing to see them develop into mainstream realities:
- The fan experience is changing whether you’re at the stadium or at home with family and friends.
- Technology for managing sports franchises is becoming the status quo.
Recently, I had a chance to interview Alycia De Avila, Director of Global Sponsorships at SAP during a Google Hangout, and she had some really interesting insights to share about trends in sports and technology, the fan experience, as well as other discussion points.
She also dives into a preview of the Soccer Showcase at SAPPHIRE NOW, plus she goes into what the event means to her and who she would like to meet.
