Angebotsseitige regionalwirtschaftliche Effekte einer Sportgroßveranstaltung

In: List Forum Band 34


  • Christiane Goebel / Rüdiger Hamm


Big sport events can increase a region's awareness level, can improve its image and the attractiveness of the location, and can generate a ,psychological income'. These considerations are empirically analysed for the example of the Hockey World Championship 2006 in Mönchengladbach. The results indicate that the intensity of these supply-side effects depends on the popularity of the sport and on the frequency of the event: A non-recurring event in a marginalized sport will have fewer effects than an event on a bi-weekly basis in a sport for the masses. With limited budgetary resources local authorities have to consider carefully which sports are in the city's interests. The regional economic effects resulting from a sports event will not in all cases rectify the financial obligation combined with that event. (Original text only available in german language)
