Understanding the Economic Impact and Future Potential of Greater Lincolnshire’s Sport, Physical Activity & Leisure Sector

Lincolnshire Open Research and Innovation Centre (LORIC) produced the report The Understanding the Economic Impact and Future Potential of Greater Lincolnshire’s Sport, Physical Activity & Leisure Sector following a 5-month study.

The research, which was commissioned by Active Lincolnshire, Active Together and Active Humber, found that the sector has a combined Gross Value Added (GVA) of approximately £788 million, which could grow to £804 million over the next 4 quarters if current productivity trends are maintained.

The data used in the report was gathered through a combination of desktop research, survey, open interviews, and group discussions, and represents the views of over 100 organisations from the Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland area.

The aim of this report was to answer the following questions:

  1. What is the current and potential economic impact of the sport, physical activity and leisure sector of Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland?
  2. What are the current and future demographic trends that will impact the sport, physical activity, and leisure sector of Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland?
