Ethics, as a practical philosophy, is found in essential relationships and relations with other relevant practical disciplines (economics, law, politics, sport, etc.). Every human activity is ethically grounded. Therefore, human ethics, which includes sport ethics,
is one of the fundamental criteria for establishing moral relations in different are as of sport life. Sport morale stems from a universally accepted ethics legal principles that aim at maintaining sport spirit based on the Olympics codex and humanity principles, among
which are: consciousness and honesty, righteousness, cultural-behavior principle, openness,
and the like.
Changes in sport (organizational, structural, competition, etc.) need to be adequately
adjusted to universal, and generally accepted, values. Avoiding deontological ethics
inevitably leads to increased sports immorality (referees_ fixing match results, spectators_
aggressive behavior, cheating using for bidden doping, etc.). Thus, projecting and introducing innovations in the field of sport, which, after all, are necessary and unavoidable in all areas of life, including sport, will eventually show its positive results only if
the aforementioned aspects of sport ethics are taken into consideration.
