Sport in the City: The Role of Sport in Economic and Social Regeneration
Chris Gratton, Ian P. Henry
Routledge, 2001 - Social Science - 322 pages
Cities now seek to attract major sporting events and activities to re-image themselves, and frequently invest in community sports development to fund economic growth and regeneration.
Including a range of case-studies from global (the Sydney Olympics) to local (urban school sports), this book looks closely at how sport has been used in contemporary cities across the world, and evaluates policies, strategies and managment.
