Este trabajo se centra en los avances que se han producido en Europa en la valoración económica del deporte a nivel macroeconómico. En primer lugar, se analizan los primeros intentos por estimar la importancia econó¬mica del deporte en Europa y que pusieron de manifiesto la necesidad de utilizar unas definiciones y metodo¬logías comunes. Sobre esa base, se discuten los progresos que se han producido en este ámbito. A continuación se hace una especial referencia al caso español, incluyendo una aproximación tentativa al peso económico del sector.

On that basis, we discuss the progress that has been produced in this area. The following is a special reference to Spain, including a tenta¬tive approach to the economic weight of sport.
