Abstract

This paper investigates the application of new technologies in the sport field. Technology, mainly information technology (IT) and internet, is deeply changing the overall picture of the sport sector. New technologies facilitate the knowledge transfer in the sporting event management process, such as the Olympic Games; at the same time, the innovative techniques can significantly affect the athletes’ performance and the social integration of disabled persons. There is an explosion of technology applications in the sport field in different sub-organizational areas, but this phenomenon is still underrepresented in the literature. This paper aims to identify and evidence the main application areas and challenges faced by technology in the sport setting. This study, through a review of the literature, represents a research starting point that allows us to systematize and clarify the main contributions on this topic and to identify new research perspectives
