"Sports are global--and there are many different types. there are leisure sports, intermural sports, school sports, team sports, individual sports, college sports, and professional sports. And within the sport world... there are so many different options. baseball, football, soccer, golf, archery, tennis, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics--the list goes on. The new .SPORT TLD can be used by teams to create an online presence, agents can use it to promote themselves and to recruit new sports talent, and even by bloggers who specialize in sports coverage. Dot SPORT can also be used at the local community level to promote community sporting events.
The goal of the new .sport gTLD is to provide a new/better way for athletes and sports related businesses to promote themselves online and to make their websites easily identifiable to their consumers and clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .sport domain extension for your brand (or yourself) will help you grow your business, by letting the world know exactly who you are and what you do--and offer. And it will help enhance advertizing efforts and help you promote your business (and your deals) more effectively online, increasing search rankings. Be sure to get the .sport domain name you want before it's taken."
