The purpose of this paper is to review the literature relating to the positive aspects of organizational psychology research in sport. To this end, the narrative is divided into three main sections. The first section defines and delimits relevant concepts, including organizational psychology, positive psychology and positive organizing. The second section presents the background to positive organizational psychology in sport and provides an overview of positive environments, behaviours and outcomes in sport. The third section speculates about the future of this area of inquiry, suggesting that attention needs to focus on positive organizational scholarship and behaviour, together with methodological considerations, in order to advance our understanding and practice.
