2021 will not just see the return of our annual workshop but also the publication of our new book Advances in Sports Economics.
Published by Agenda Publishing, this collection of chapters is a collaboration by members of the Centre for Sports Economics and Law (CSEL) at University College Cork and academics and policymakers across the world.
Advances in Sports Economics includes a wide-ranging collection of newly commissioned essays that examines the multifaceted field of sports economics in baseball, basketball, cricket, football, Gaelic games, horse racing, rugby and tennis. Both at the professional and amateur level, sport offers economists the opportunity to study the behaviour, choices and outcomes of decisions of players and referees as well as regulators and governments
The book includes contributions from those working at Lancaster University, University of Michigan, West Virginia University, University of Reading, University of Melbourne, Nedbank, Compecon, University of Liverpool, Northern Racing College, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Leeds University Business School, University of East Anglia, Loughborough University, La Trobe University and the Economic and Social Research Institute.
Advances in Sports Economics is now available to pre-order from Columbia University Press and should be available by early summer 2021. More details can be found here (USA) and here (Europe).
Our blog will now take its customary Christmas break and return on Monday the 25th of January 2021.
We would like to wish all our readers a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2021.
