Abstract: Sport is a social environment in which the occurrence of ethical problems constitutes a rather frequent phenomenon. Thus, better ways of managing such problems are sought. The present study moves towards this direction, starting with a description of the ethical problems occurring in sport and their possible causes. Then, issues concerning the ethical problems occurring are discussed, aiming at their better management. In this discussion, issues such as the ethical climate to be promoted by sports organizations are touched upon, along with the determination of organizational justice which allows the management of moral issues by all members of sports organizations.
