Football industry stakeholders' salience and attributes - the case of Cyprus, EU

George Yiapanas, Alkis Thrassou

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this paper is to theoretically identify the various stakeholders of the football industry and to define and delineate their typology, prioritisation and interrelationships, along with specific attributes; drawing in parallel explicit theoretical and practical conclusions towards scholarly advancement and managerial implementation. The research focuses on the case of Cyprus, a small European (EU) island-state, whose football-specific attributes, in all its business, sporting and social contexts make it a rather unique and valuable case study for football internationally. Methodologically, the research relies on an extensive theoretical study and the application of Mitchell et al. (1997) typology of stakeholders' attributes and salience.
