Abstract

La importancia del deporte en el mundo actual ha trascendido al ámbito social, económico e, incluso, político, por encima de lo relativo meramente a su práctica. La celebración de grandes eventos deportivos se ha convertido en toda una fuente generadora de beneficios directos, y también inducidos, allá donde se celebran. Por esta razón, los poderes públicos y económicos pugnan por la organización de este tipo de eventos en sus ámbitos geográficos de influencia. Sin embargo, los estudios de impacto de estos beneficios en muchas ocasiones aparecen sobrevalorados, influidos por los intereses de los agentes implicados. El presente trabajo ofrece una metodología para evaluar el impacto económico y social de la celebración de grandes citas deportivas a nivel local. Entre las principales ventajas que ofrece están su transparencia y la independencia de su realización, al provenir de un grupo de trabajo ligado a la Universidad. Como ejemplo práctico de aplicación, se ha considerado la celebración del Campeonato de Tenis femenino de la ITF celebrado en Sevilla en octubre de 2006, dentro del Circuito WTA = Nowadays, sports go beyond their merely practice reaching social, economic and even policy aspects of everyday life. Hosting great sporting events has become into a rather prolific source of direct and induced benefits for the cities where they take place. Hence, public and economic institutions struggle to host these kinds of events along their geographical influence areas. However, most impact assessments often exaggerate local benefits since they are conducted by vested interest agents. Then, this paper provides a simple-to-use methodology to assess the social and economic impacts of hosting great sporting events at local level. Transparency and impartiality are two main advantages of the followed procedure in the sense that it has been carried out by a research group linked to the University and with no vested interest at all. The empirical part has been developed for the ITF Female Tennis Championship of the WTA Circuit held in Seville in October, 2006.
