Sport makes a significant economic contribution to the UK. According to my department’s Sport Satellite Account, in 2016 the value of the sports economy was just over £37 billion (gross value added). According to independent research carried out by Leeds Beckett University, the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire boosted the county's economy by almost £64 million.
