n the sport entrepreneurship field, bibliometric analysis and maps have not yet been used to analyze the production and to visualize the evolution and trends of this field. However, sport entrepreneurship is an emerging field of research where it is necessary to find methodological strategies for understanding the major research trends developing in this specific field. Therefore, the primary aim of this article is to perform a bibliometric analysis of sport entrepreneurship in the Web of Science Core CollectionTM. In total, 123 articles were published between 1968 and 2018 and written by 252 different authors from 189 institutions and 36 different countries. The evolution of these papers published by year, institution, country and journal was analyzed. Moreover, a co-occurrence analysis between authors, citations and keywords was performed, as was a thematic analysis. Finally, suggestions for future research to consolidate and develop this field with implications for researchers and policy makers are discussed.
