Sports Events and Facilities

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Economics book series (BRIEFSECONOMICS)

Abstract

American college and university athletic teams play home and away games in such venues as baseball ballparks, basketball arenas, and football stadiums. These sites are on or near their campus, or at campuses of other schools. For a number of intercollegiate sports, competition between teams includes games scheduled during regular seasons and then—if qualified—in postseason playoffs, series, and tournaments. Because they are exciting, popular, and unique, and truly entertain sports fans and other groups in communities of the United States (U.S.), some of these events generate publicity and revenue for schools and their athletic conferences. Others who benefit are the companies and local governments that own sports facilities, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA ), various businesses, and civic organizations.
