With the Super Bowl behind us and the Olympics right in front of us, seems like a good time to reflect on sports. With so many forces converging across the science, technology, societal, economic, and political spectrum’s, there is one thing we know for sure; not even sports is safe from the world altering change that lies ahead. With that in mind, I began thinking about the Super Bowl and Olympics of 2030. What types of changes are in store for these massive sporting events?
In the middle of last year, I presented on the Future of Sports at a local event. A summary of that session can be found here. In the narrated short presentation below, I explore the various dimensions of sports and a number of possible sports-related advances. I close with a poll that asks the following:
Who do you think will be most impacted by sports-related advances, in the next five years?
- The Athletes?
- The Fans?
- Is it the Stakeholders, such as Officials, Teams, and Leagues?
- Perhaps the Media, including Brands and Sponsors?
- Or is it Other? Participants that are still relatively unknown.
