    In IPL type leagues, Event Managers and PR people are running the show. Legacy clubs  will have their own people.

    Sports Federations do not recruit-influential people are already there in various committees and sub-committees.
    Ex-Army people , Businessman accompany Indian teams  as managers from Federation.

    Somebody will need to give some examples of people with Sports Management degrees getting jobs in India.

    Its better scope in becoming a Professional coach then getting a degree in Sports Management.

    Someone needs to give an example of them getting a job overall in sports. Most people I know in sports management positions just have basic marketing and business degrees, not a sports one specifically.

    Unless the structures in all sports get professional, these fancy degrees do not mean anything in India. After struggle for some years, the incumbents will have to shift to selling soap, fairness cream or toilet papers.

    there are lot of jobs in Indian Football but for few positions freshers doesn't have any openings. But the most stable job in Sports Industry is School Sports Companies.
