The 20th FIFA World Cup is currently well underway in Brazil and logistically it is a huge undertaking with events taking place across 12 cities.

As such a large sporting event it is an example of large scale events management and hospitality and a catalyst for tourism to the host nation.

Over the next few posts I’ll share a few examples of research on sports events management, hospitality & tourism but you’ll find even more relevant books and journal articles on the Library Catalogue and Discover.

Edited to add all links to this weeks posts on Sports Management & the World Cup:

Your liaison librarians have been buying lots of books and e-books, sometimes they are new titles, sometimes additional copies, and sometimes newer editions of titles already in stock.

This is great news for distance learners because many of our new books are e-books which are accessible anytime from anywhere.

We’ve recently pulled some usage information on e-books within our collections and interestingly 6 of the top ten most popular e-books are education books and 4 are business related books.
