Summary/Abstract: In the 19th Century sport was regarded as a local event related to a specific place. In the 20th Century from a local event professional sport became national and has had international presence ever since. After that professional sport became a means of State propaganda. Sport nowadays is multinational, but continues its relation to the place and has local significance. However its continuity lies in the propaganda of multinational business corporations.
