English abstract
Can a sports club both promote democracy in a society and provide citizens with opportunities for access, influence and meaning-making? Can a democratic way of life be developed through participation in a sporting activity that challenges existing beliefs about both the nature of sport and the role played by sport in society? These questions are the starting point for a discussion of the ‘social’ aspect of the concept of social entrepreneurship in sport. Through the use of democratic conceptions, Chap. 6 explores the extent to which sport and sporting activities with an entrepreneurial character can contribute to citizens’ democratic influence and competence, and hence to the development of democracy.
