Gain experience in the highly sought-after field of sports management, supporting a top professional football club in Argentina and an international sports charity. Interns help with day-to-day operations, marketing and communications, and liaison between your placement and international partner clubs to find opportunities for further growth.
This is a remote internship you can conduct from home.
Practical experience is essential for anyone looking to work in sports management, which means it can be a difficult industry to break into. By serving on this Sports Management internship out of Argentina, you’ll gain crucial experience and skills to set you up for a rewarding career in this high profile, popular industry.
Interns are placed with either a professional football club or sports charity, although full-time interns are able to assist both types of organizations.
When interning at the football club, you’ll help in a marketing and communications capacity, based in the International and Institutional Relations Department. Interns identify collaboration opportunities with other international sports clubs, such as player and coach exchanges and international sponsorship possibilities. You’ll attend online meetings with representatives from clubs from around the world to explore opportunities, and can also help to organize logistics for team exchange tours to other countries.
Football clubs take their community responsibilities seriously, and use sport as a vehicle to help to educate and entertain young people in particular. Interns work with local club professionals to design community workshops that raise awareness and address UN Development Goals around poverty, inequality and education. This can include developing games, worksheets and activities to raise awareness of these social issues and their flow-on effects.
Sports charities in Argentina work in underprivileged communities to provide fun activities and games that help young people to develop social skills, confidence and physical fitness. Interns assist by collaborating with local instructors to develop and improve exercises and drills in sports such as football, tennis, basketball, rugby and baseball.
You’ll also be able to assist with fundraising activities, including identifying and engaging potential individual and corporate sponsors. Interns can build fundraising strategies, including organising fundraising events, and develop newsletters and social media content to attract and encourage new sponsors.
Charities also host study abroad students, and interns can support these students by helping to arrange their itineraries, accommodation, transportation and other logistics.
Interns that contribute to both organizations are able to gain a rounded experience of sports management, planning and administration. If interning on a part-time basis, you may request a specific placement, although that cannot always be guaranteed.
You’ll be in close and regular contact with your supervisor in Argentina, working to your own schedule to deliver work on agreed deadlines. You will need to accommodate online meetings with your supervisor when it’s required, so there will be times where you’ll need to be available during office hours in Argentina.
