INTERNATIONAL SPORTS Rationale for project: Major sports have moved out of the sole possession of North America and have shifted worldwide. Comprehension of Olympic Movement issues and the degree to which N.A. organizations have moved into sports are critical for a global appreciation of the industries. For this unit of the class, you are to prepare a PowerPoint presentation that will present the basic elements of an international sports league. Begin by selecting a sports league which is based in, and operates, outside of the United States or Canada. You may select any sport of your choosing. Next research the organization, structure and rules of that league. You should answer questions such as: “How many teams are in the league?”, “How many games are played?”, “How is a champion determined?”, “Is there fan support and corporate sponsorship?” The purpose of this presentation is to show that you can relate what you have learned about worldwide sports governance and apply that to the league. Next, put all of your research into a PowerPoint/Prezi/or Keynote presentation. The presentation must have no fewer than eight slides of substantive material You may use your notes, textbook, handouts, library resources and Internet research.
