The Impact of Sports Development

             With development of sport and the increase of spectators, sport and sports competitions, in the UK have become more popular than ever and more money is been spent on it. But not everyone is interested or follows sport, and some people just do not want large stadiums effecting their community and life's. For example new stadiums being built on farmers land (green belts). Residents see sports stadiums to bring rioting, noise pollution, litter, congestion and many other factors that will be covered. .

             There are 3 issues, which I will be focusing on. They are Economic Impacts, Environmental Impacts, and Social Impacts. The Economic Impacts will include, business, money intake and spending, government input. Environmental Impacts will cover pollution, energy waste, congestion etc. And finally Social Impacts are things such as rioting, vandalism, and community bond. Figure 2 shows some examples of the positive and negative aspects of these issues. .

             Here are the case studies I will be covering:.

             ¨ Wembley stadium.

             ¨ Olympic games.

             ¨ Brighton FC.

             ¨ Crowborough Golf Club.

             ¨ Sri Lanka nation stadium.

             Stadia and sports development have a large input from local and national governments. For example the new Wembley stadium is set to cost £757 million and the Galle International Stadium in Sri Lanka was £340,000 (50 million rupees), although not all of the funds have come from the government, a lot of money has been granted to them. Finding the other funds can cause long delays. Wembley needs funds from Germany to help pay for the new stadium.
