The Internet and the latest technological innovations such as blogs, social media, podcasts, etc. have recently received a considerable amount of interest in the academic literature. Marketers have recognised the remarkable power of these tools in disseminating messages and establishing close relationships with customers. This work presents a snapshot of the current usage of e-marketing and mobile marketing tools and technologies applied by English and German first-division basketball teams. It further compares the two markets with regards to their size and characteristics. A series of semi-structured interviews with marketing executives or managing directors of first-division basketball clubs from England and Germany has been conducted.
