The purpose of this study was to identify the financial barriers in professional sports. The methodology of this research was qualitative with the phenomenological approach and the required information was obtained, using documentary studies and semi-structured interviews. The statistical population was university professors with specialization in sports management, economics, and entrepreneurship, the sport's senior managers and career professionals, and senior managers of corporations and investment funds. The sampling method was non-random and purposeful. We continued interviews with experts to reach the theoretical saturation (20 interviews). Finally, 10 financing barriers were identified, as follows: inefficient economies, financial challenges, management challenges, legal & regulatory challenges, lack of transparency, statehood, Apolitisme, corruption, and challenges of attitudes and knowledge. We categorized the barriers in two main categories: functional barriers and fundamental barriers. According to the findings, it is possible to develop a desirable financing model for Iran's professional sport through planning and action in order to overcome these barriers.
