Overview

"This book discusses the emergence and development of five extremely popular team sports since the 1800s - baseball, basketball, soccer, ice hockey and cricket. Covering 15 different countries, it addresses some of the most recent and provocative economic and business issues associated with team sports in the various nations. For example, to what extent have these spectator sports prospered as industries, and will they expand into other regions of the world during the early to mid-2000s?" This book answers these questions, and compares the performances of each country's amateur, semiprofessional and/or professional sports leagues and their respective teams by providing detailed statistics and other relevant historical information. It will be an invaluable resource for academics, researchers and students in sports business, sports economics and sports history, as well as for executives and other officials employed in amateur semiprofessional and professional sports organizations.
