A carnegieXchange Seminar from John Myers, Lecturer- Carnegie School of Sport
There is a commonly held assumption that sport has a gambling addiction. Indeed, political parties, media, and influential societal groups portray the industry as a villain in the world of sport consumption, and here lies the juxtaposition. Gambling on sport is not a new phenomenon, the activity helped form governing bodies and establish critical rules to the sports we love.
Exploring advertising, sponsorship, and other topical gambling discussion, this seminar will critically discuss the requirements of research in gambling and its relationship with sport.
