Sport is the most popular recreational activity, for centuries being an important element of society. Entrepreneurship has also been embedded in societies for ages, helping people to grow socially and economically. Europe is investing heavily in Entrepreneurship Education (EE) to sustain economic growth and social inclusion. The EU also recognizes the need to reinvent how entrepreneurship is identified, taught and nurtured. Links between sports & entrepreneurship are manifold, yet seldom recognized and rarely capitalized upon. The two are rarely found together in VET as effectively connected domains with synergic links: hence the need for much-needed entrepreneurial competences due to low EE in sports-oriented disciplines and lack of tailored entrepreneurship training.
