List of famous sports administrators with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Sports administrators help to ensure the smooth running of a sports organization, which may range from reception work at a local sports club to marketing or human resources at a major sports club. Sport has gained in social significance, with growing public awareness of its contribution to community development and sports administrators have a similar range of responsibilities to administrators in other fields, but are likely to focus on organizing events and running sports facilities. For instance, sports administrators could be focusing their efforts on marketing, fundraising, procurement, supply chain management or general administration tasks. Alternatively, they could be responsible for organizing and scheduling sports events, managing budgets or overseeing the recruitment and training of staff. Sports administrators are available in sports clubs (amateur and professional), sports academies and schools, sports administration and governance bodies, health facilities, sports charities and not-for-profit organizations and community centers. Sports administrators are essentially responsible for making sure sports organizations, events and initiatives are run cost efficiently. Consequently, part of their role involves maintaining databases, managing admin systems and implementing project management processes to ensure everything runs as smooth as silk.This section provides you information about the life and works of various famous sports administrators from all over the world.
