Summary/Abstract: Sport is closely tied to human needs expressed through play, movement, com-petition, communication, and group identification, and as such it holds great value for man. Together with the historic development of society, its values changed and also the nature of relationship between these values, which influenced sport itself to an extent. However, the need for play and competition has remained embedded in the core of social order and has had a great role in the life of man to this very day. Based on its characteristics, sport can be viewed from two sides. One side contains the positive charms of sport competition - success, spiritual fulfilment, and satisfaction of the need for movement. The other side is accompanied by various forms of violence and aggressive behaviour, unwanted but present. This paper consid-ers the contemporary image of sport and its values. Given that value represents a rela-tionship between the attributes of the subject and the object, the bond between sport and society is unbreakable when determining the contemporary value of sport. Vari-ous forms of violence occur as a side-effect of sport.
