Chapter 12: Sport and crime in a global society

Nicholas Groombridge


Sport is widely admired but also derided. It is given enormous new and old media coverage. That coverage is skewed towards ‘male’, corporate and global sports. Some sports that were once only local are now seeking global audiences. There is also much critical academic attention paid to sport and money to be made in sports law. However, both localized and global criminologies have ignored sport, leaving it to other disciplines to support and critique it. This chapter seeks to remedy that and point out the extent of criminalized and criminal behaviour within and associated with sport. This offers scope for criminologists to examine the ‘foreign’ jurisdiction of sport while close to home. They must risk examining something of which they may well be fans.
