About Us

Sport&EU was founded in 2005 to provide a home for scholars and practitioners interested in the relationship between sport and the EU. We promote comparative and interdisciplinary research on sport, Europe, and the European Union all widely defined.


We value interdisciplinarity and seek to be a home for a diversity of academics and practitioners in areas such as European studies, political sciences, economics, management, law, history, philosophy, gender studies and more.

Our mission is to establish a wide network of people, from within Europe and outside, interested in these areas and promote dialogue and research through the staging of an annual conference.

We are committed to support the development of new generations of academics, researchers and practitioners. We want to be a friendly home for PhD students and those at an early stage of their career. Many of our early members now hold senior positions in their respective professions and we are proud of the small role we have played in their development. 

Sport&EU values, promotes and commits to equality and diversity in sport and academia. We will promote equality and diversity in all our actions, events and contributions.
