This book brings together world-leading sport marketing scholars from 11 countries to address the most important global, regional, national, and community marketing issues in sport today.

Presenting the latest cutting-edge research from countries including India, China, the UK and the USA, it includes case studies on successful marketing strategies in sports ranging from football and hockey to baseball and motor racing.
