It’s remarkable the importance of the sport in the economy. This importance arises not only due to the quantity of people that makes sport in its many different forms, but also by the quantity of people who enjoy it as a spectacle of masses. These two aspects, together or separately, contribute greatly, directly and indirectly, to the economic development of the various sectors. This direct influence is manifested in trade, industries that manufacture equipment and objects and material needed for the various sports, or in the construction area, once there is need to build stadiums, pavilions and other places for sport; and manifests itself indirectly through businesses that sponsor sportsmen and finance the agents, the media, royalties, marketing and advertising and even tourism.
