Abstract

Sport is a component in many people’s lives which has economic, social and cultural significance, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. This article explores sport’s evident geographic relevance by considering spatial patterns such as where different sports are played; the significance of sport and place, including the iconic nature of certain stadiums; globalisation within sport; and the use of sport for political and economic ends.
