Any suggestions appreciated

sports supervisor
Explanation:
My native experience tells me that a company will not have a manager for sports. Sports would normally not be a part of an organization chart of most companies. So supervisor might be the better choice of term.

sport official


Explanation:
The term is generally used in German to suggest an official who either has formal training in sports education, who has a trainer`s license, either in football or some other form of sports and who is professionally engaged in this activity. A physiotherapist who works for a football team, for example, would be termed a "Sportwart"
