This book showcases new research in sport business management around the world, offering a platform for the international exchange of ideas, best practices, and scientific inquiries in a globalized sport economy.

Featuring work from leading sport management scholars from around the world – including North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia – the book addresses a variety of global, regional, national, and community issues that are central to successful sport management. Combining both qualitative and quantitative studies, it explores key themes such as the emergent environment, managing change, organizational transformation, application of technology, marketing and promotion, and research protocols. New case studies cover topics such as entrepreneurship and innovation, sport broadcasting, digital technologies, youth and college sports, and the development of the sport management curriculum.
