"Sports as more than a game": Interview with Jose Gigante & Simon Rofe Fri, 2018-02-02 18:38

Over the last few decades, sport has become a business and a social phenomenon that attracts more interest and more investment than many other industries, and has gone far beyond just being “a game”.

Miia Laine talked to Dr Simon Rofe (SOAS) and Jose Gigante (Y-Sport) about how sports consumption and business is changing, what international sports events say (or don’t say) about diplomatic relations between countries, and the darker side of power dynamics in global sports.

In the build up to the World Radio Day Event on Feb 7th, 2018 the SOAS Radio Team will be interviewing community radio, representatives of communication for sports & development organisations, radio industry professionals and academics on this years theme of ‘Sports & Radio’ in a series of podcasts.
