At the Global Sport Institute, we believe that knowledge is most valuable when it is widely shared. It is our goal to support and amplify insights, information, and important research revolving around sport and its impact on the world. We aim to distill those findings into a variety of innovative formats so that individuals and communities can use it in meaningful and practical ways.

Global Sport Matters

Global Sport Matters is the Institute’s purpose driven platform that provides an in-depth look at a broad range of sports topics making an impact beyond the playing field. The site creates and shares a variety of content that spotlights the cross-section of sport with culture, history, science, technology, business, politics, health, the humanities, and more. We connect people to sport knowledge in both traditional and innovative formats. Check it out.
