Are sports club members big spenders?: Findings from sport specific analyses in Germany

  • Wicker, Pamela

This paper analyses the sport expenditures of people who are members of non-profit sports clubs (NÂ =Â 10,013) in Germany. Adult members, active in 21 sports, were asked about their sport expenditure relating to several defined categories. The results show that members spend an average of [euro]1610 per year on their chosen sport. Sport specific analyses reveal big differences in expenditure between sports, ranging from badminton ([euro]338) to equestrian ([euro]7902). According to sport-specific regression analyses, personal income, level of performance, and weekly time of participation are the main predictors of sport-specific expenditures. Compared to other studies, these results show that the financial status of members of non-profit sports clubs is very strong.
