Advances in technology have always had a significant impact on sport. This book surveys the next generation of emerging technologies and considers how sport managers, governing bodies and officials can meet the challenges that they pose for sport competition, participation and events.

It explores cutting edge developments in areas such as gene doping, vision and brain technologies, 3D printing technologies, molecular communication technologies and our ability to "rebuild" bodies. Each chapter considers the implications of a particular technology in terms of ethics, rules and regulations, facilities and resourcing, as well as the emergence of completely new forms of sport, and offers strategies for future sport management.

Emerging Technologies in Sport is a valuable resource for sport industry professionals, undergraduate students in the fields of sport management, sport tourism, and sport business, and a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in sport and future applications of emerging technologies within sport.
