Working with a wide variety of stakeholders and experts worldwide, through its Global Sports Impact (GSI) Project, Sportcal has developed a methodology to measure the holistic impact of events and a standard to capture the narrative coming from these events to produce comprehensive and informative analysis and insight for the sports industry.
Sportcal has developed a knowledge-sharing portal that enables rights holders, hosts and stakeholders to understand more about the wider impacts of their events, providing greater insight into the benefits of hosting major sporting events.
A range of services have been developed through the GSI Project, aimed at helping stakeholders capture information about their events, analyse the data and benchmark against other events, nations and cities.
GSI Event Studies
In January 2017 Sportcal launched a four-year programme to bring federations, rights holders, host cities, governments, academic institutions and key stakeholders together to work with Sportcal and engage in the Global Sports Impact (GSI) Project.
The programme involves the analysis of world championships, series and multisport games from a diverse range of sports and events, to help event owners and hosts understand the true impact of their events across a wide range of sectors, and to support them in the further development of their event strategies.
Over 30 international federations have already engaged in the programme, including a four-year agreement signed between ASOIF and Sportcal, to support ASOIF members via the studies programme throughout the 2017-2020 Olympic cycle.
