The Global Sports Impact (GSI) Report is an annual publication that studies the impact that sport has had over the last few years.
Each report provides in-depth analysis and case studies on the major events from the previous year and looks at the impacts generated by these events.
Sport delivers a holistic range of impacts and the GSI Report analyses these impacts across a range of sectors including
- Sports Tourism
- Social Media
The GSI Report provides a series of graphs, charts and indexes based on the methodologies and ratings developed by Sportcal through its Global Sports Impact (GSI) Project.
The year 2014 was a big one for sport. The Fifa World Cup in Brazil, the Sochi winter Olympics, four other major multi-sport games and over 70 major world championships took place, covering a wide variety of sports. Over 13 million people bought tickets for these events and over 330 million people attended the top 25 sporting events of 2014 which included the NBA, NFL, MLB, English Premier League, German Bundesliga and Formula 1.
Sport is big business. But how much do we know about the people that attend these events and how much do we understand about the true impact of these sports?
For the first time in a unique publication, The Global Sports Impact (GSI) Report 2015 analyses the impacts that these events had on their host cities and nations in 2014.
Sport has a massive global impact and 2015 was no exception to that. Over 80 world championships and multisport games took place in 2015, generating millions of spectators and billions of hours of media coverage. Supported by the major annual events, they have a huge impact on the world’s economy.
But what do we really understand about this impact and how do we accurately explain it to governments, ministries and the general public? There are no consistent standards and methodologies to clearly define the annual impact of sport.
This second edition of the Global Sports Impact (GSI) Report explores the impact of sport in 2015 and 2016 and examines some of the key issues and challenges facing sport in the future.
