Posted On August 9, 2021
With football in the air and the Olympics in the cards, there are a lot of factors to consider when deciding where to invest.
Here are five key points to consider if you’re planning to follow the game: 1.
The Olympics will be a big draw for British people Sports analysts say that the Olympic Games are the biggest draw for Britons, and the number of people who attend the Games is growing every year.
BBC Sport’s Dan Roan has seen this first-hand.
He told the programme that the Olympics is the biggest sport event in the world, and has been in the top five or six for years now.
“The Olympics are a huge, huge draw,” he said.
“It’s the biggest sporting event in Europe, and a huge draw for people.”
Sports will be the main draw for young people Sports experts say that young people will be most interested in sports when they’re older.
Sport is a great way to develop self-confidence and self-esteem, they say, and it’s a way to be connected with other people.
The Games are a great opportunity to develop local talent Sports experts suggest that there are plenty of local football clubs and rugby clubs in the region.
“A lot of the clubs will be trying to recruit new players from the region, and they’ll be trying new things, and trying to get young people into the game, and getting them on to the pitch,” says Peter O’Mahony, who is a senior lecturer in sports marketing at the University of East Anglia.
“So the Olympics are going to be the perfect place for the region to show that it can compete in the global games.”
The local scene is already huge The UK is already home to a number of professional football teams, including Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Aston Villa.
That makes the region one of the world’s biggest sporting markets.
The future is here There are a number projects in the pipeline to help local communities develop their own clubs, says Chris Wood, managing director of Sportvision.
“There’s a number clubs, we’ve got teams in Scotland, we have teams in England,” he says.
“We’re looking to develop more and more teams in the local area, and there’s also a local association for football in London, and some of the local clubs in Sheffield are really doing really well.”
