Research Alliance Formed

June 14, 2017

Arizona State University is furthering its partnership with Adidas through the Global Sport Alliance, which will research issues in sports science and health. As reported by The Arizona Republic, the Alliance will work with the school's athletic department, as well as its law school, business school, engineering school and journalism school.

ASU Athletic Director Ray Anderson says the vision is to study the impact of sports on society, "like no other university has ever had the thought of doing."

Michael Crow, ASU President, said the partnership would have benefits for many people, even those who do not play sports.

"We’re going to work together,  thinking about the future of sport, designing new ways that sport can move forward and designing new ways where sport can involve more people — not just all of the athletes on the field," Crow said.
