This research is part of a comprehensive PhD research project that focuses on the existence and development of leadership in sport management practices. The underpinning factors that are associated with successfully leading top teams in sport are often used as an example in regard to being successful in non sport business (Westerbeek & Smith, 2005). This paper aims to identify what are specific qualities of leadership as exhibited by sport team captains making use of leadership profiles derived from the evolutionary theory by Van Vugt and Ahuja (2011). The following research question was designed for this research: What kind of leadership characteristics do sport team captains show in the age group of fifteen years and older?
