Working Zone Respect

Sports are timeless, yet with each generation, innovation and changing social dynamics have altered and enhanced how fans experience them. Today, sports fans no longer just watch and cheer – they analyse, critique and connect with their teams in real time. With widespread technological advances, including in the areas of connectivity, portability, livestreaming, mobile and social video, sports fans are consuming media in different, evolving ways. Fanbases are becoming diverse, more active and more influential, and are demanding better and unique stadium experiences. Are teams, leagues, sponsors and rights-holders ready to adapt to these wide-ranging changes?
