Knowledge is most valuable when it is widely shared.

That is why we have worked with ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication to create the Sports Knowledge Lab at ASU's Downtown Phoenix campus.

Led by Executive Editor and veteran sports journalist Kathy Kudravi, the student-driven team at the Sports Knowledge Lab scours the globe to find timely, research-based information about the sports topics that impact us most, and translates those findings into information that can be easily understood and widely shared through the GlobalSport Matters content hub. 

The Sport Knowledge Lab is one of more than a dozen professional programs at the Cronkite School in which students gain valuable real-world experience under the guidance of faculty members.

GlobalSport Matters

GlobalSport Matters provides an in-depth look at a broad range of sports topics making an impact beyond the playing field. It is where you’ll find feature stories, videos, podcasts, polls, enjoyable sports content and more, connecting people with timely information and making a positive impact on sport and anyone who sport touches.

Digging deeper into a cross-section of topics like culture, science, health, business, and youth, GlobalSport Matters will quickly become the go-to information source at all levels of sport, whether you're a player, coach, parent, industry professional, or simply someone who understands the important lessons that sports can bring to everyday life.
