Sports marketing manager positions enable individuals to combine a love of selling with a love of sports. Annual salaries for executive positions in this career area are often lucrative, topping £32,500.
According to Jobs-salary.com, a small sample of sports marketing manager positions in September 2010 showed a range of pay between £26,000 and £52,650, with an average of £39,000. Most positions, though, were outside of major league franchises.
In the Majors
Baylor University conducted a comprehensive survey of sports marketing and ticket sales managers for major league franchises in 2007. It found that all managers of ticket sales for the major sports leagues--NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and NFL--averaged more than £32,500 a year.
Pay is higher for directors of ticket sales of a major professional franchise, often one of the top marketing positions for a team. Excluding Major League Soccer, directors of ticket sales and corporate sales all made in excess of £52,000 a year, with a maximum pay of £97,500, according to Baylor University.
