The thesis of the article is the following: the sport hat not values. The values of sport are: 1. subjective judgements attributed by people according to their sporting experiences and the effects (positive or negative) they perceive; and 2. the judgements attributed to sport from institutions (clubs, fitness centres, the State, educational institutions…). Therefore, the values of sport are secondary and “causal” attributions given by persons and/or institutions. Each of the parts of the article develops the way in which the above mentioned thesis can be demonstrated in different fields: the person, the market (economic value of sport), institutions —mostly clubs— and the State. Conclusions discuss about the problems to establish the values of sport.
