From the aspects of the sport as a global phenomenon and English as the international language in this paper we analyze the role which the English language has in the process of the sports terminology unification on the international scale in the 21st century. The particular attention is given to the crosscultural interactions which cause the language borrowing in this field. The main focus of the analysis is on the influence of foreign languages on English within the field of sports terminology. The aim is to define what languages, when and under which circumstances had the most remarkable influence on English sports vocabulary throughout the history. The analysis showed that the most loan words in the English sports vocabulary are originally from the Far East and that they are adapted to English according to English orthography and pronunciation. Keywords: sports terminology, lingua franca, borrowing, adaptation
