Today's global sports industry is worth between €350 billion and €450 billion ($480-$620 billion), according to a recent A.T. Kearney study of sports teams, leagues and federations. This includes infrastructure construction, sporting goods, licensed products and live sports events.
The global sports industry is growing faster than overall GDP, and long-term growth prospects remain strong. What does the future hold for the industry and its fervent fan base?
Live sports events in particular offer a compelling proposition to different industry participants—from free-to-air broadcasters seeking viewers and advertising revenues and pay-TV broadcasters looking for loyal subscribers, to sponsors moving away from traditional media, event organizers, athletes and spectators.
Our independent analysis, commissioned by Lagardère Unlimited, finds that the global sports industry is growing much faster than national gross domestic product (GDP) rates around the world.1 And the global sports value chain—its size, makeup and revenues—has significant growth prospects for the future.
