A Little More
So, you want to know some more about SportsBizTrends.com? That’s perfect, curiosity is what develops us (and the industry).
Sports Biz Trends, or SportsBizTrends.com if you like, is a article platform and newsletter community for free sports industry-related content. It is founded by me, Magnus Berglund, and has grown since the beginning in 2015.
On the content part of the website, you will find some of the scouts that me, the team, and our readers, have recently picked up. We follow the major sports industry news sources so that you don’t have to.
At SportsBizTrends.com, everyone is free to contribute their own insights and experiences through a guest post, as long as the quality is high.
Our belief is that we can all benefit from fresh ideas, good insights, and exchange of experience across borders.
If you are interested in contributing, we have a couple of categories to explain what type of insights and articles you can expect to find over time.
Some of the areas we constantly think about are:
- TV & Media
- Matchday & Merchandise
- Arena & Stadium
- Athlete Marketing & Management
- Bidding & Mega Event
- Event & Logistics
- Fan Experience
- And much more…

About Me: Magnus Berglund
From 2010 to 2015, I worked with sports marketing within the Dentsu Network (and Aegis Media). Then, I ran my own business as an independent advisor and consultant, and since 2022 I have been the Marketing Manager for a Finnish challenger in the industrial industry.
Over the years, I have worked with major sponsors, as well as with rights holders in sports leagues, clubs, events, and NGOs. Since a few years back, I also helped some of the best international athletes with personal branding and sponsorship consultation.
Together with my good friend Frans Fransson, we published the book Hållbar sponsoring (Swedish for “Sustainable Sponsorship”); a complete guide for rights holders who want to increase their sponsorship income in a healthy way. The book was nominated for “Marketing Book of the Year 2019” by the Swedish Marketing Association.
With experience from various assignments in strategy, activation, and valuation of sponsorship (from grassroots to English Premier League club), I am happy to share my insights and ideas with others here at SportsBizTrends.com, as well as in other industry channels.
My own experience is that it is through sharing ideas that I personally develop and keep myself “up to date””. And I don’t think I’m alone in that regard. Inspiration is there to be shared. It’s that simple.
If the time is right, we can discuss sports business and marketing trends over the phone, in a video meeting, or in a traditional “fika”.
If you happen to have an extra ticket to your own event, I am happy to make a live visit if time and travel allow.
Feel free to reach out through email or LinkedIn.
Sometimes others think I have something meaningful to say, apparently. Here are some of them.
