Abstract: Sport continues to experience unprecedented popularity, with growth driven by the evolving ways in which sport teams, athletes, and media communicate with their audiences and fan bases. In turn, the dynamic world of sport communication offers burgeoning career opportunities for students skilled in communication and passionate about sport.No other college text explains the nuances of the field more effectively than Strategic Sport Communication. Now in its fourth edition, the text blends theory and research with practical approaches and current examples to provide students with a comprehensive examination of all aspects of sport communication.The text boasts an unparalleled authorship team of international sport communication scholars, educators, and practitioners and aligns with the Common Professional Component topics outlined by the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA).The updated edition features a two-part structure. The opening chapters present the history of the field, career opportunities available to aspiring sport communicators, and an examination of the intersection between sport communication and today...s sociological and cultural issues, such as gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and nationalism.Part II is dedicated to the Strategic Sport Communication Model (SSCM), bridging theory and practice by detailing the three main components of sport communication: personal and organizational aspects of sport communication, mediated communication in sport, and sport communication services and support systems.Mass media and their shifting and converging roles in the sport communication space are explored, while special attention is given to digital sport media, including Internet usage in sport and the Model for Online Sport Communication (MOSC), espousing seven central aspects of sport websites. The text is rounded out by chapters focusing on integrated marketing communication, including advertising, sponsorships, athlete endorsements, and data analytics; public relations and crisis communications; and sport communication research.
