vol. 6, October 2013, p. 48-56


The focus of this paper is to evaluate conceptions, perceptions, and interpretations of `financing sport' throughout the European continent. The paper will aim to shed light on the ways that policy contexts dictate the application of sport financing as well as sport management. This paper would like to focus some attention to the involvement of central and local governments of European countries in sport financing. Moreover, in pursuing this line of interrogation this paper asserts that opportunity structure for the organization and development of sporting activities has shifted from developmental to managerial throughout the 21st century.
