You are cordially invited to submit papers to the SIG ‘Managing Sport’ for the 17th EURAM conference (European Academy of Management) that will take place in Glasgow 21-24 June at Strathclyde Business School.

The following tracks are opened for paper submissions:
08_00 Managing Sport General Track
ST_08_01 Sport Governance

The ‘Managing Sport’ SIG collaborates with Emerald – a global publisher – since 2010.

A ‘Best Paper Award‘ and a ‘Best Reviewer Award‘ sponsored by Emerald will be awarded among the papers and reviewers of the ‘Managing Sport’ SIG at EURAM 2017.

A selection of high quality papers will be accepted for a special issue in ‘Sport, Business and Management: An International Journal’ published by Emerald. This follows a tradition of best paper issues with SBM, for example in 2011 on ‘Governance and Performance‘ (EURAM Rome Conference), in 2012 on ‘Evaluating and Measuring‘ (EURAM Tallinn Conference), in 2013 on ‘Managerial Decisions‘ (EURAM Rotterdam Conference), in 2014 on ‘Branding and Governance‘ (EURAM Istanbul Conference), in 2015 on ‘Advancing Knowledge’ (EURAM Valencia Conference), and forthcoming in Autumn 2016 ‘Emerging frontiers in sport management research’ (EURAM Warsaw Conference).

We look forward to meeting you in Glasgow!
