Abstract:

"It is now recognised that sport is an industry accounting for a significant share of Gross Domestic Product, consumer spending and employment. However, there has been little systematic study of the industry by economists. This book attempts to fill that gap by providing a comprehensive approach to the application of economics to the sports market. It gives particular emphasis to the role and importance of the commercial sector in sport." "This book covers a key part of sports management and sports studies courses, making it a vital learning resource for students on such courses and for those studying sport as an applied topic on economics courses. It should also appeal to professionals in sport and leisure management consultancy and local government. The substantial bibliography is evidence of the wealth of information now available on the sports industry."--BOOK JACKET.
