Sport is one of Australia's major industries, as well as one of our most popular pastimes. No longer just an amateur activity, from council playing fields to elite competition, sport is highly organized and structured. Sport Management in Australia provides a comprehensive overview of the organization of sport in Australia. It outlines trends in participation, the role of government and private organizations, different models of delivering sporting services, and the benefits and drawbacks of increasing commercialization. This edition includes new chapters on managing major sporting events and rapidly growing action and extreme sports. Drawing on examples and comparisons from countries around the world, and with extended case studies, it is a starting point for anyone embarking on a career in sport management.
