Globalization of Sport

The globalization of sport has never been more evident than it is today, and the cross-cultural reach of sport continues to explode at the recreational, amateur and professional levels. It is the mission of FiT Publishing, the publishing division of the International Center for Performance Excellence (ICPE), to support CPASS’s international educational initiatives by disseminating the most recent research in the sport sciences field — by both national and international scholars — to a global audience in the form of our journals and books. 

In 1992, FiT Publishing began publication of its first journal, Sport Marketing Quarterly (SMQ). Today, SMQ is recognized internationally as a premier sport marketing journal, with a subscriber base in more than 20 countries, an upcoming impact factor rating, and, recently, video podcasts to accompany each issue. The International Journal of Sport Finance (IJSF) serves as a high-level forum for the worldwide dissemination of current research on sport finance topics, with the objective to advance knowledge of the topic area from both a globally diversified and multidisciplinary perspective. 

FiT also publishes the Sport & Entertainment Review (SER), which seeks to be one of the world’s leading journals on publishing cutting-edge, authoritative thinking on the key issues facing executives in the world of sport and entertainment.FiT publishes books in the sport sciences ranging from sport and cultural studies texts, such as “Case Studies in Sport Diplomacy, Embodied Masculinities in Global Sport, and Racism in College Athletics,” to foundational sport management textbooks including the upcoming fourth edition of “Financing Sport” and second edition of “Research Methods in Sport Management.” To accommodate international growth, FiT Publishing provides many of its texts in different languages to consumers around the world and has expanded its worldwide distribution network to include contracts with book distributors in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand.
