The aim of the paper is to explore the perceived importance and barriers to ICT integration in the management of sport organisations, as well as the extent of its use. The research was conducted on a sample of Croatian sport managers. The results indicate that they find ICT essential for efficient sport management practices. The study also showed that managers believe that ICT is used sufficiently in the management of their organisations, which should be taken with caution. The results partially support the hypothesis that there are serious barriers to the integration of ICT into sport management. Of all the barriers analysed, only the lack of funds for equipment purchases and software acquisition was identified as a significant obstacle. The findings of this study fill a gap in the existing literature and contribute to a better understanding of the process of ICT adoption and implementation in sport management.


Keywords – sport managers, perceived importance of ICT, extent of ICT use, barriers to ICT integration, sport management.
