The value of the sports economy in England

E-mail Print

There is a clear need for information on the nature of the sports economy and its value to the economy as a whole. Such information is vital to support the case for securing public funding in particular. The recent movement towards greater regional determination of policy, as indicated by the work of the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), Regional Cultural Consortia and indeed the strengthening of the regional focus of Sport England means that there is an increasingly need for consistent information at the regional level.

The purpose of this project has been to develop a standard economic model to identify the value of sport at a particular point in time that can be readily applied to each of the English regions to provide a consistent basis for analysis and comparison. It was required that the model should provide a relatively straightforward mechanism whereby the analysis can be updated over time.
