FUTURE OF GLOBAL SPORT: 2019
Association of Summer Olympic International Federations, 2019, 44 pages, in English.
Beyond considering how global trends are impacting the sports sector, this report provides a historical overview of the foundation of organised sport as we know it today. It delves into the key challenges being faced by the world of sport, such as changing consumption behaviours and the increasing complexity of staging major IF and multi-sport mega-events. The report lays out a vision of the future of sport over the next 20 years and concludes with a blueprint for IFs to adapt and take advantage of the opportunities presented by today’s increasingly disrupted and competitive sporting landscape, in particular as the involvement of both public authorities (governments) and private interests in sport continues to grow.
