Sports Clubs struggle in the voluntary sector (English)
Abstract [en]

This dissertation deals with two sports clubs and their operational development between the years 1946-1998. The research was made by a qualitative analysis of the annual reports and protocols that the clubs produced between 1946-1998. The two clubs are IFK Växjö and Växjö BK which are located in Växjö in Sweden. Our main purpose with this study was to analyze the operational development and in which way elitist drive affects the voluntary society content and culture. Results indicated that if a sports club starts with elitist sport it could have a bad impact on the voluntary sector. Elitist sport often results in more required work tasks for the members and also selection among younger athletes. A determining factor was how the clubs raised resources and how their choice of strategy in this respect affected the voluntary element in each club. The study of the development of the resources allocation, no matter if it is voluntary assistance or ready money, is a key to operate a sports club whether it is a club with elitist sport or not.
