Olympic sport of schmoozing eludes corporate sponsors

  Olympic sport of schmoozing eludes corporate sponsors NEW YORK (AP) — Screaming fans won't be the only thing missing from this year's Olympic Games in Tokyo. Behind the scenes, there won't much schmoozing for corporate sponsors either, thanks to the pandemic. The corporate sponsorship program has been a key part of the Olympic experience since it began in 1985. More than a dozen or so names like Coca-Cola and Proctor & Gamble pay millions of dollars in each four-year cycle on sponsorship and marketing programs that includes wining and dining athletes, top employees and key clients at Olympic events. But all that networking opportunity has been undermined because of the virus.

Sport is passion. For the athletes, participation in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, starting today's Friday, is a reward for their top performances. But only in a few sports these are crowned with high revenues and lucrative advertising opportunities. International well-known names such as Lionel Messi (Football), Lewis Hamilton (Formula 1) or Roger Federer (tennis) lead the top 10 to the annual money ranking of Topathlets of the US business magazine forbes with millions.

But not only world stars in sports must be able to live from their salary, also all other professional athletes. How long male Bundesliga professionals, female Bundesliga professionals and Olympic arts have to work in order to be able to afford the average rent in the most expensive German cities, data analysts of Essen real estate tech startups objego have looked at.

The first Corona cases in athletes in the Olympic village continue to bring Tokyo makers in distress before the opening ceremony. Two South African footballers and a career of the team were positively tested on the virus on the last weekend before the start of summer games.

You put the workload and the average average fee of athletes in relation to the current average rental price for a 60-square meter apartment in different cities. The evaluation , which also included seasonal seasons, shows that female football professionals and olympics need to work much longer to finance the average rent.

Bundesliga players earn at Hamburger SV 16.20 euros per game minute - men 362 Euro

So a football player of the first Bundesliga in Munich has financed the average rent for a 60-square meter apartment in 30 game seconds. On the other hand, a Munich Olympic participant requires 8.9 full working days with each eight-hour use.

Among the largest is the financial burden on athletes of the Objego study according to major cities. So an Bundesliga football player deserves the Hamburger SV per playing minute averaging 362 euros. A 60-square meter apartment in Hamburg with a monthly rent of an average of 684 euros costs it 1.9 minutes of play.

Tokyo, Paris, LA, Brisbane -- 2032 Olympics go to Australia

  Tokyo, Paris, LA, Brisbane -- 2032 Olympics go to Australia BRISBANE, Australia — How about this for an Olympic-scale list of world cities: Athens, Beijing, London, Rio, Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles and, wait for it, Brisbane. Since the Summer Games were last hosted in Australia, at Sydney in 2000, and when they’ll return Down Under in 2032, the Olympics have been held in some of the world’s most famous cities. Brisbane, the capital of Queensland state and Australia’s third-largest city, is an outlier. It’s aiming to produce an Olympics more like Barcelona in 1992 than London or Beijing.

A comparison to female Bundesliga footballers shows the Gender Pay Gap in this sport: The women deserve at Hamburg SV 16.20 euros per minute and would have to invest a good 42 minutes for the financing of the apartment. In Munich, Bundesliga footballers have to earn the average rent for a 60-square meter apartment with 68.5 minutes. You invest here 137 times more active playing time than your male counterparts.

But the difference to the references of Olympic arts is clear. For example, an Olympionic from Hamburg has to raise 2627 working minutes for the payment of the rent for 60 square meters. This corresponds to 5.47 working days of eight hours and is independent of gender. The income of a male HSV professionals outweighs that of the Olympians thus by a factor of 1.382.

topathles participating in Olympics earn averaging 2,500 euros per month. Part of them is employed by the Confederation, for example in sports conveyors of the Bundeswehr or the police and in customs. In addition, the athletes relate funds of the foundation German sports aid.
