Mapping the potential societal impacts triggered by elite sport : a conceptual framework / Jen de Rycke & Veerle de Bosscher

Rycke, Jens de | Bosscher, Veerle de

When nations face the challenge of justifying their elite sport development policies, they tend to state that a wide range of societal benefits will ‘trickle down’. This argument, however, is being criticised by academics who claim that there is a lack of empirical evidence for the way elite sport influences society. In light of the uncertain/unproven positive and negative societal impacts, this study developed an encompassing conceptual framework that integrates the empirically supported potential societal impacts assumed to result from elite sport.
