This book revisits the traditional general approach to sport policy by adopting an entrepreneurial perspective. The respective chapters, all written by recognized experts, link a fragmented collection of treatises on entrepreneurship, public policy and sport entrepreneurship to develop a coherent, unified perspective on policy-making. The book’s central argument is that, while in the past, sport policy focused more on governance and political elements, these aspects can also be embedded into a ‘policy entrepreneurship’ perspective. To date, most sport policy research has also tended to pursue an organizational behavior or political science approach. Breaking with that trend, the book incorporates the nascent sport entrepreneurship literature into this approach. The new strategies proposed here offer valuable resources for public policy planners and sports managers alike, two groups who need to work together to build better policy initiatives.

The social role of sport enterprises is being increasingly recognized at both local and global levels. Sport has the ability to influence community cohesion, physical and mental health, social inclusivity, and provides positive role models across society. More businesses in sport are incorporating these social aspects into their plans as a way of differentiating themselves from their competitors. This, in turn, has led to more social innovation in sport. Recently, there has been more emphasis on social entrepreneurship in sport due to the growing need to capture its societal impact. This book explores the non-profit role sport plays in society, and demonstrates how social enterprises can both address some of the negative social outcomes of sport and support businesses as they develop their social objectives. The over-arching aim of the book is to focus on how social entrepreneurship in sport is important in developing a better global society.
