Dear Socnetters,

please consider submitting an abstract for the session Sport and Networks at the XXXVIII Sunbelt Conference, June 26 - July 1, 2018 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.


Sport is a phenomenon that touches almost all members of society and can be viewed from very different angles. So far, only little work has been conducted on sport using a social  network perspective even though SNA might be used to explore many interaction processes of  and within sport teams: Intragroup relations of team members, game situations (e.g. passes)  as well as relations to opponents can give us fundamental insights in cooperation strategies of  sport teams. Athletes as well as clubs are interconnected with their environment and have  relations to other sport organizations, associations, sponsors, fans, governments or agents. SNA  can be applied to analyze these relations or enlighten managerial recruitment strategies and supply networks of sport actors. As sport research is an interdisciplinary area we like to address different disciplines that explore  and analyze ego networks, whole networks, two-mode networks or social capital with an empirical or theoretical emphasis.
