The concept of strategy has been part of the management framework over several decades, given its relevance to the growth and development of organizations. However, although there are several approaches around strategy developed in other areas of knowledge, in the sport management context, it is still necessary to increase our understanding of this phenomenon. This special issue focused on Strategy in Sport Management and is comprised of six studies that cover several subjects around this research field. New theoretical perspectives, methodologies and their application to several sport contexts provide an opportunity to advance our understanding about Strategy in Sport Management.
