The Global Sport Institute

The Global Sport Institute is where diverse disciplines come together to thoughtfully examine critical issues impacting sport. We are unique among sports research institutes around the globe, as our efforts are supported and integrated across the entire university — from engineering to sociology, to the athletic department and beyond — rather than within a single discipline.

We bridge the gap between academic research and real-life implications by distilling our findings into meaningful information that is easily understood, and we actively share that knowledge with the audiences who need it most.

The Institute is supported by a combination of institutional ASU funding and a significant philanthropic gift from adidas.
