Abstract [en]

Previous research has attempted to show how sport and business differ. This is especially so when it comes to team sports like football. This range from the fact that football organizations compete in leagues to that the product (the football match) is unique. Consequently there are claims that there should be specific theories for the management of football organizations. However, what is lacking is a more thorough discussion on these theories and to what extent they actually differ from those theories used in business studies. A critical stance towards the discussion also raises the question why it is so important to state these differences? Is it really the case that business studies theories are of little use in order to understand and manage football organizations or could it be argued that currently the potential of business studies theories are underestimated?

The aim of this paper is to critically discuss management of football organizations from the viewpoint of business studies.
