Sport bodies struggle to train officials to monitor and communicate appropriately for game situations. Uniquely, this project focused on players' and officials' motivations and strategies for influencing interactions in a range of popular team sports, and developing insight into the unspoken in interactions. The importance of officials' adapting to situation and influencing 'face' for both players and themselves is emphasised. Recommendations are given for improving officials' attitude and skills in interaction and game management across sports.
