Sport clusters as self-sustaining systems – members, relationships, behaviours

Abstract : The aim of this article is to elucidate the concept of sport cluster. We aim at answering this question by exploring its key characteristics using preconceived concepts such as various location-specific factors (LSF), cluster member organisations (CLOR) as cluster stakeholders, interorganisational relationships (IORE) and networks (IONE), and interorganisational behaviours (IOBE) such as interorganisational citizenship behaviour (ICB). The aim is to descriptively sketch the investigated case in order to then conclude general organisational and structural features of sport clusters.
