Economic Impact Studies

Sports Business

We have a track record of delivering high quality, independent economic impact studies in respect of sports, sports clubs and sporting events.

Assessing Economic Impact

If you are in the process of organising a major event, an economic impact study is your way of highlighting the significant financial injection to the economy that your event is providing.  Our experience of writing these reports stretches back over a decade and we have consider the impact of major global events including the Ryder Cup, the World Equestrian Games and the ATP World Tour Finals amongst many others.

Our robust methodology ensures that our economic impact reports quantify all reasonable elements of incremental economic impact – core impacts, other direct impacts, and indirect impacts – and the work can also address qualitative assessment of costs, benefits and other factors.

Our quality reports are typically used by clients to inform and influence key stakeholders and our flexible working style has the ability to account for the individual characteristics of each event.

We can perform analysis before an event to estimate its potential impact to help inform a bidding or hosting decision and afterwards to assess its actual return on investment.  We tend to visit an event ourselves, to ensure that we have a clear understanding of progress and to ensure that the report fully understands the overall impact.
