Sport events offer valuable experiences in distinctive settings, and serve as settings for social identity formation. Drawing on the literature from a range of disciplines, events characteristics are seen to provide spaces for the co-creation of values, liminality, communitas, flow experiences and authenticity. It is suggested that sport events facilitate career progression in relation to serious leisure and the development of social identification. The paper provides further insight about the nature of event experiences with implications for event management.
