Promoters work behind the scenes to create an ideal image for teams and athletes alike. Their role may include marketing strategies, planning and coordinating meet-and-greet events, and tickets sales and distribution. Most sports promotions positions require a bachelor's degree and some experience in the marketing or sporting field. The Occupational Handbook predicts that this career will grow faster than average and the median pay is also well above the national average.
