ABSTRACT

It is known that the state intervenes in sport for a number of reasons: to increase social order and to combat forms of social exclusion and crime by promoting sport projects that target deprived areas; to reduce national budget on health by promoting sport practices among the wider population; and for economic and urban regeneration. However, for political and ideological reasons, the state’s intervention in sport is taking a larger share in the promotion of causes linked to international prestige, which the good organization of a sporting event, or the success of a top athlete or national team can bring to the political establishment. Such intervention can also mobilize the population and dispose it favorably toward the political project of the government (or regime), particularly during electoral campaigns, by increasing the sense of unity and by offering opportunities for the people to celebrate success, particularly at times of political and economic crisis. Of course the motives and the extent of a state’s intervention will depend on the nature of the political system — whether it is democratic or authoritarian, capitalist or socialist, centralized or decentralized, stable or instable. State intervention is also constrained by the international governance system of sport and the power relations within international sport organizations such as Fédération Internationale de Football Association and International Olympic Committee (Houlihan, 2009) and, at domestic levels, by the power relations between different stockholders — or, as formulated by Green (2005), by the coalition of interests groups linked to the national sport system (private and public sectors, sport federations, sport clubs, National Olympic Committees, elite athletes).
