Title: “There is way to much sports in the athletics” – A study of Swedish sports

Football has gone from being a hobby and a popular pastime into a billion-dollar industry, and clubs around Europe are therefore operated more and more like regular companies. Sweden's position in the UEFA rankings is a modest 23 rd place, behind nations such as Austria, Switzerland and Belarus. The economic climate in Sweden is often highlighted as a strong factor. When we started our study we agreed that this could be a major contributing factor to this relatively modest rank, but believed that there were also other factors that played a big role. We therefore carried out a quantitative study to identify the Swedish sports manager’s skills of running their clubs as companies within the creative industry. Our theoretical framework was built on organization and leadership theories in general, and in the creative industries in particular and resulted in a four-leg model of sport management requirements: Apart from organizational structure, managerial skills, communicative skills and sport skills were all deemed necessary. Empirical data were collected to see how well the Swedish sports managers' profile fit into our theoretical model. According to our studies, the organizations and sports managers' held-views that were consistent with our theories. Our study suggests that although the sports managers distributed their time equally between the three areas of skills identified (economical, communicational and production knowledge) their competences were unequally divided between the areas.
