Welcome to our work to promote the work taking place in the academic community. These pages encapsulate what we are about - creating good evidence based sport and physical activity policy and sharing it.

These pages will showcase the work of various sport academics in a format that is accessible to sport policy makers. With events and roundtables we will bring people together around topical themes - exploring the evidence and latest insight. We are in a unique position with experience in sport and physical activity policy over the last 20+ years. Working much closer together in future we can improve the impact of academics and improve the evidence and knowledge base for policy makers.

Sports Economics, theory and evidence

The Economics of Sport provides a highly accessible introduction to the main theoretical, empirical and policy issues that emanate from the economic analysis of sport. Written in a style that makes economics accessible to sports management and policy students, this is a lively and reader-friendly examination of the crucial areas that make up the sports economy.
