About the course

Many of us like to watch sports and cheer our favourite players in the field. We remain focused only on the sportspersons and to some extent, on the stadiums on which the game is played but along with this a lot of work is done in the background to manage the whole sporting event. These works are equally important to make the whole episode successful and with the growing number of sporting events across the world, trained manpower is essential to manage the show.
