We have a track record of delivering high quality, independent economic impact studies in respect of sports, sports clubs and sporting events. Our robust methodology ensures that all reasonable elements of incremental economic impact are quantified – 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.
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.
