Well, most live sporting events are shot with video cameras so that the images can be sent immediately to television. Many have large lens because of how far away they must sit relative to the action:

As far as Panavision and Arri go, there are a lot of differences. The most notable is that Panavision only rents their gear while you can purchase Arri. Apart from that, every camera is just a box with a hole in it that allows an image to be "recorded" onto some kind of medium. After that, the features on various camera types allow the user to do different things in different ways. Both companies have a variety of camera bodies that have different uses, such as high speed or cameras that are very small and lightweight.

The best way to learn about the differences is to just browse through their websites and/or visit sales or rental houses:
