The Sage Handbook of Sport Management is a what’s what from the who’s who of sport management academia. This book provides a comprehensive review of what we know about sport management.  The handbook provides a detailed yet accessible overview of the many fields within the sport management discipline.  I will be keeping my copy close at hand.

Geoff Dickson
Assistant Professor of Sport Management, Auckland University of Technology

This is a very welcome volume with contributions from many of the leading authorities in sport management covering the full range of issues addressed by sport management. As well as providing a great guide to the traditional core of the subject such as organisational behaviour, governance, marketing and sponsorship, economics and finance, HR and event management, the Handbook also covers several of the cutting-edge developments including corporate social responsibility, equality and diversity, sustainability, and the political dimension. Russell and Milena have to be congratulated on producing a high-quality book that will engage academics, students and practitioners alike.

Bill Gerrard
Professor of Business and Sports Analytics, Leeds University Business School

The editors of the SAGE Handbook of Sport Management have succeeded in compiling a highly attractive combination of experts’ views on a broad range of critical topics in international sport management. Their book is a valuable contribution to this rapidly developing field that provides fruitful insights to scientists, practitioners, and students alike. It is in particular a good book to deliver a comprehensive overview on a great variety of topics. Thus, I highly recommend the SAGE Handbook of Sport Management to anybody who has a scientific interest in the field or is involved in it in others way, such as managers or politicians but also to students that want to get an updated basic understanding of topics in sport management.

Holger Preuss
Professor of Sport Economics and Sport Sociology, Johannes Gutenberg-University, Mainz

In this outstanding Handbook of Sport Management, Drs. Hoye and Parent, two leading sport management scholars, have invited a diverse group of established or rising scholars to provide fundamental explanations and in-depth analyses of a wide range of sport business concepts and challenging issues contemporarily faced by various sectors of the global sport industry. I have enjoyed reading through the chapters containing theories derived from empirical evidences and application principles generated from best practices. This handbook can be a wonderful textbook for an introduction to sport management course or used as a reference resource by students, instructors, researchers, and practitioners.
