Abstract [en]

This paper provides a systematic review of articles on sport published in leading business studies journals and evaluates the degree of development of three subfields within business studies vis-à-vis sport. Based on a review of 38 identified articles within the subfields of Marketing, Strategy and Organisation Studies published between 2000 and 2015, this paper contributes by illustrating the current state of research that is devoted or related to the phenomenon of sport within business studies. We identify considerable differences in topical, theoretical and methodological orientation across the studied subfields. Overall, we also find that articles across all subfields tend to be focused on contributing to mature theory, even though the subfield of Marketing in particular exhibits contributions to nascent theory in contrast to Organisation Studies and Strategy. Based on these findings, we offer avenues for future research and briefly discuss the role played by leading business studies journals vis-à-vis sport-sector-specific journals.
