Georgia Southern sport management students compete in case study competition

Georgia Southern University seniors and sport management majors Gabriel Anderson, Stacie Anderson and Jenna Kniss, were selected by faculty to represent Georgia Southern at the 2019 Applied Sport Management Association (ASMA) Conference Case Study Competition in February.

The conference, held in Nashville, Tennessee, tasked students with finding a location for the next Major League Soccer expansion team, writing a report about their recommendations and presenting their findings to a panel of experts in the soccer industry. Georgia Southern came in second of the seven undergraduate teams.

In addition to the competition, students were able to visit with alumni, CJ Berthelsen (’15), Zack Taylor (’11) and Michael Schetzel (’94), who are currently employed with the Nashville Sounds, Nashville Predators and Nashville Soccer Club respectively, and meet with other leading industry professionals.
