A SportWest social return on investment report, released today, found that Western Australia's organised sport returned $4.85 billion in economic and employment outcomes, $3.02 billion in physical and mental health, and $2.39 billion in personal wellbeing and broader social benefits per annum.
Broken down further, for every dollar invested in community sport, by or for its roughly 700,000 participants, our State reaps $7.10 in benefits.
This is the first return on investment study of its kind to encompass the whole sport industry in WA and delivers a measurable value of what sport is worth to our community, beyond the usual anecdotal stories.
SportWest received an $89,000 State Government grant to commission the study.
