3rd Reading Football Economics Conference AND 7th Sport Economics Sport Management Conference

On May 7-8 2024 the Department of Economics at the University of Reading will host the 3rd Reading Football Economics Conference and the 7th Sport Economics Sport Management International Conference in conjunction with the International Association of Sports Economists (https://www.iase-sport.org) concurrently. This event is generously sponsored by the Sports Economics Review, published by Elsevier, and the keynote speaker for the event will be Colin Camerer, of the California Institute of Technology.

We invite submissions in all areas of sport, and areas of economics and management where a sporting application yields significant insight. Presentations on May 7-8 will be organised into sessions relating to the two conferences taking place at the same time in Reading. Depending on the volume of submissions, parallel sessions may be organised.

Keynote speakers, and details regarding any (small) conference fees and any associated conference events, will be confirmed in due course.
