About This Report:

UK Sport commissioned the Sport Industry Research Centre (SIRC) at Sheffield Hallam University to produce a 'Sport Satellite Account' (SSA) for Olympic and Paralympic sports, in order to quantify their economic importance to the UK economy, for the year 2017. This is the second report, on Olympic and Paralympic SSAs; the original one was constructed with 2014 data. This report shows the results, mainly in terms of GVA and employment and their distribution per sport. The methods employed are consistent with the Government's 2017 estimates for the sport industry as a whole, produced by DCMS3.
