‘Innovation and entrepreneurship are two dynamic forces that have revolutionarily impacted the development and advancement of the sport industry, an increasingly globalized business sector. Without a doubt, these forces will continue to robustly drive significant changes in sports and the process of managing sports. Led by an internationally renowned scholar, Dr. Vanessa Ratten, a distinguished group of scholars from six countries have addressed a large number of contemporary issues fundamentally associated with managing and promoting innovation and entrepreneurship in sport business ventures. This is a must-read book for scholars, professionals, teachers, and students. Highly recommended!’
