2022 Economic Impact of Sports in Los Angeles

LA Sports Council has commissioned the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) to produce a comprehensive report on how the sports industry financially impacts our community on an annual basis.

This is the only report of its kind. The findings will be announced at the LA Sports Innovation Conference each year and will benchmark how the industry evolves over time. It will be especially interesting to see the numbers during the run up to, and through the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
