Sports and Local Growth in Sweden: Is a Sports Team Good for Local Economic Growth?
Örebro University, Örebro University School of Business.
2016 (English)In: International Journal of Sport Finance, ISSN 1558-6235, E-ISSN 1930-076X, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 269-287Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This study investigates whether net migration and per capita income growth are affected by successful local soccer or ice hockey teams: Local governments support local professional teams and are often motivated by the alleged positive externalities, which,,ultimately, are supposed to,enliarice the tax base. We estimate spatial panel data models using data from all Swedish municipalities for the 1996-2012 period. Even. with. this alternative modeling framework, we stilt find no evidence of a positive relationship between teams in the highest league and the local tax base; we do, however, find indications of a negative effect from ice hockey on average income growth.
