Football NSW and Northern NSW Football have partnered with world renowned and experienced management consultancy Sport Business Partners (SBP) to research the broad economic, health and social benefits of football in the community to produce the “The Community Impact of Football in NSW” report.
Since the release of the inaugural Community Impact of Football study in 2015, football’s total overall contribution to NSW communities has increased by 23% – almost five times the rate of inflation.
According to the independent SBP research the total financial impact of football in 2018 has increased to a staggering $520 million. At this current growth rate, SBP has extrapolated that the total community impact of football in NSW will reach $1 billion by 2025.
