The past three years have seen significant changes across the business and governance of international sport. The rise of women’s sport, the emphasis and evolution on duty of care, the increasing vulnerability of events to cyberattacks, the consumption of sport across generations, and the evolution of engagement and technology advancements with fans and supporters alike have all had significant impact on the international sports industry, and New Zealand is no exception.

Valued at $17.8bn, the sports industry in Australia is a significant sector in its own right and must be treated so from a risk point of view.
