Analysing and understanding the true impact of hosting events
Global Sports Impact (GSI) Report
The Global Sports Impact (GSI) Report is a product of the GSI Project and is published annually. The report aims to analyse and benchmark major events and their impacts using the GSI Project methodology.

Now in its fourth year, the GSI Report 2018 comes in several smaller volumes, providing a greater level of detail and analysis in order to better explain the specific impacts of sport.

This approach will also allow us to continue to provide analysis and content in the same depth and more as in previous years, with each volume catering to the specific interests of our readers.

Volumes of the GSI Report will align to the key themes and modules used in the GSI Project to analyse the impact of sport.

The Event Hosting & Bidding volume is the first to be produced in 2018, which focuses on a) the hosts of events held in 2017, and b) the winners of event bidding processes in 2017.

A total of 80 events that took place in 2017 are analysed in the GSI Report 2018, an increase of 10 from the 70 events studied in the GSI Report 2017.

All of these events are individually analysed in a standardised format within the Event Analysis chapter, based on an increased spectrum of indicators than in the previous editions of the GSI Report, based on the four core modules of the GSI Project.

Written analysis in this volume sheds light on the present day problems faced by event owners and host cities in the lead-up to events, as well as snapshots of some of the most high-profile bidding process to conclude throughout the year.

The GSI Report was first produced in 2015, bringing together data and narrative from major sporting events from the previous year.

The holistic range of impacts created by events have been analysed across the three editions of the GSI Report published to date. Analysis covers a number of topics and impact pillars within the sports industry, including:

  • Event Hosting
  • Event Bidding
  • Governance
  • Economic
  • Sport Tourism
  • Media
  • Social Media
  • Sponsorship
  • Social
  • Sustainability
  • Sporting
  • Legacy

The GSI Report provides a series of graphs, charts and indices based on the methodologies and ratings developed by Sportcal through its GSI Project.

The GSI Project’s scope of research includes world championships of summer and winter Olympic sports and Olympic ‘recognised’ sports as well as multisport games. The GSI Project’s research will soon also include continental championships, youth/junior world championships, masters world championships and world series, leagues and tours.
