About Our Network

Our mission is to provide collaborative environments in which SportWorkers can develop their skills, knowledge, network and partnerships in both our dedicated ‘sport working’ locations and via our ‘online platforms’.

SportWorker.com is the online platform dedicated to the professional and personal development of the global SportWorker community.  Through the active sharing of our collective knowledge and inspirational journeys, it is our genuine belief that we contribute to making the world a better place through sport.

We exist to foster a thriving sports scene and community and provide the best for our members to succeed. We are uniquely headquartered at the prestigious Maison du Sport International, in the Olympic Capital Lausanne, Switzerland. It is from here, in the heart of international sport, that our team has built collaborative spaces to promote our members’ contributions, giving real visibility across the global sport sector and serving to increase each individuals career, business, and work opportunities.

Who is Sportworker.com for?

“For the people who work in Sport!  From professional athletes, their entourage to the grounds-people, from the C-suite and Sport Administrators to the sport intern, from volunteers to technical officials, from the ticket collector to the timekeeper, we embrace every individual who works in our essential industry.”

The Individual

One of our major functions is to support the motivation of each Individual member.  We believe that by informing and providing connectivity to our network that actively promotes its own members, we are best serving our community. Our ‘Individual members’ are provided FREE access to all of our core publications; the Talks, Podcasts, Blogs, Articles and our Weekly News Digest. And we are constantly working hard to curate, publish and maintain this availability for ALL!

Along with all the content access provided to the ‘Individuals’, the ‘SportWorkers’ toolbox is supplemented with a daily news digest, exclusive member benefits, priority to our live events and discounted access to our dedicated ‘sport working’ spaces.
