In order to describe the data descriptive statistics were made use of while for the purpose of prioritization of the barriers and contexts of development, the exploratory factor analysis test was prescribed. Nonetheless, the parametric test of independent-t and the nonparametric test of Mann-Whitney were respectively used to test the normally, and abnormally distributed hypotheses. Nevertheless, the sufficiency of sample size was investigated through the KMO test. The results of the Freedman test revealed that there exists a statistically significant difference between average scores of the indices effective on the development of entrepreneurship and employment. According to the prioritization of factors, the lowest average scores were respectively associated with the behavioral (2.73) and the environmental (2.95) indices. Therefore it is concluded that the corresponding managers can initiate joint programs with banks in order to provide the entrepreneur athletes with financial support and an improved state of social security among the owners of sports-related businesses (insurance, bankruptcy and, unemployment).
