In 2010 DeBartolo Sports and Events was launched by five time Super Bowl winning owner Eddie DeBartolo, Jr. with the idea that a sports firm would be created in the image of his championship teams and real estate empire. Invest wisely, bring in the best talent, operate efficiently, develop winning strategies, secure solid partnerships and deliver return on investment.
Our mission statement is simple: We help our clients and partners win.
We feel that says it all. Everyone’s definition of winning is different. But no matter how you define it, we make sure our clients and partners get there. Our firm is driven by a core belief that successful properties, campaigns, events and experiences are rooted in creating powerful and long lasting connections between clients, sponsors, customers and consumers.
Our amateur sports division is DeBartolo Sports University, a sports educational organization, dedicated to teaching, coaching, training and empowering student-athletes to achieve their potentials both on and off the field. DeBartolo Sports University offers the highest quality events and training for athletes.
We believe that regardless of the sport an athlete chooses to focus on, a set of very similar training fundamentals are necessary to succeed in all sports. Whether it is football, lacrosse, baseball, or basketball, DeBartolo Sports University will provide athletes and coaches with first class instructors and first class events. DSU specializes in sport and position specific training, with all of our programs having been created as first class training and development programs for amateur athletes.
The focus of DeBartolo Sports University is to bring young talent to the forefront by offering developmental programs, designed to help amateur athletes reach their potential through coaching and mentoring from the pro’s. The training and development experts have not only played and coached at the highest professional level, but have trained some of the most successful professional athletes. With mentors like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice and coaches like Joe Dickinson, DeBartolo Sports University offers athletes a once in lifetime opportunity.
