This is an interesting take on this assignment. Industry analyses are usually found in one (or more) of three business databases. Link to the Business LibGuide, and click the Articles tab. The three top choices for industry analyses are MarketLine, ABI/Inform, and Business Source Complete, all linked on this page.
This time the analysis is in ABI/Inform Complete. To get there, click the ABI/Inform link and log in with your 6 digit student ID number and the beginning of your Brenau email address. I began by searching the word soccer. To limit the results, using the right side tool bar, I clicked on Document Type and then More Options. Then I clicked on the box to include Industry Reports. Scrolling down, you will see Professional Sports Teams & Organizations - Quarterly Update.
This is what you're looking for. Professional soccer in the U.S. is part of the pro sports industry. The most recent quarterly update was posted yesterday. How cool is that? Soccer is specifically mentioned 4 times in the report.
Thanks for asking!
