Argument

Recent crises, from the economic and migratory to the recent covid-19 pandemic, have dramatically affected all areas of individual and collective life – and sport and physical activity are no exception.

Many aspects of sport, physical activity, health, and leisure have been affected: sport-health practice, the use of sports as a mean of social inclusion for immigrants, professional sports events, their media coverage, the place of sport and physical activity in the welfare system and so on.

The main aim of this special issue is to bring scholars, researchers, educators, students, professionals and other groups interested in sports and physical activity to propose their works. The focus of this special issue lays in the new challenges that sociology of sports and physical activity have to face to understand these new complex scenarios, the main issues we had to face, the successes, the criticalities and the lessons learned.

We are interested in receiving both empirical research, theoretical and critical commentaries (35000-40000 characters, spaces included) on the longer term – and present – implications of these challenges.
