Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Spectator Sport and Fan Behavior”. Call ends April 9, 2021
Spectator sports represents one of society’s most universal leisure activities.

That is, work should engage in some way beyond individuals and explore ideas of community, authenticity, relationships, context, place, collectivity, inclusion, belonging, social justice, or a common good.
