Abstract [en]

Change is a recurring element in society and for sports clubs. When there is a change in society, this change may have an impact and change the condition for sports clubs and its leaders. Changes can be degraded into trends. This study has been delimited to study four social trends that research shows may have an impact on sports club, which are; Increased commercialization, changing demographics, changing communication patterns and increased individualization. To help sports clubs in their development it is of value to find out how these changes are perceived. This study aimed to investigate the perceptions that sports club leaders have about social change and its impact on their leadership and their clubs development. More specifically the study examined which social trends that have impact, how leadership develop and change from social trends, opportunities and obstacles that social trends brings, and how changes in society are received. This was done by eight interviews with the chairman from eight different voluntary sports clubs. The results show that parts of all four trends has an impact. It also shows that leadership develops to some extent. There are both opportunities and obstacles with social trends for sports clubs and their leaders and certain trends in society have more barriers and obstacles for the sports clubs than others. When a change in society is perceived to have meaning and impact, it also causes some type of active receiving by the sports club.
