Global Sport Summit 2019

Q: Who is organizing the Global Sport Summit?

A: The Global Sport Summit is presented by the Global Sport Institute at Arizona State University, in partnership with four ASU academic programs: Sports Law & Business (Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law), Sports Business (W. P. Carey School of Business), Community Sports Management (School of Community Resources & Development), and Sports Journalism (Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication).

The Global Sport Institute is where diverse disciplines come together to thoughtfully examine critical issues impacting sport. We bridge the gap between academic research and real-life implications by translating our findings into meaningful information that's easily understood, and we actively share that knowledge with the audiences who need it most.
