The Importance Of Sport

Latest research shows UK sport stats


We all know the important part that sport plays in a healthy lifestyle. Physical exercise reduces risk of disease whilst delivering long term benefits to the participant.

But as a business, depicting the importance of sport within the economy can be harder to outline.

Recent UKsport stats show just how important sport is to businesses and the wider economy in the UK:

According to UKsport, the value of Olympic and Paralympic sport now stands at £19bn. For perspective, that figure makes Olympic and Paralympic sport larger than entire other sections of the economy, such as the water, agriculture, forestry and fishing industries.

These stats alone show the immense size of the sports industry to the UK economy, and with these stats not including the likes of Golf, Football and Rugby, this figure barely scratches the surface.


So what are we doing to utilise sport’s current position of strength?


Here at CAP2, we’re working with hundreds of sports providers across thousands of locations to ensure the sports sector remains as strong as ever.
