Many new jobs get created due to the needs of the leagues and players. Consumer spendings rise because of the facilities and things you can do during the time of any leagues or matches. Numerous new infrastructure gets built to sustain the league, such as transport, hotels, stadiums, restaurants, and more.

The players, of course, are an integral part of the sport. For playing in the league, they are paid a fair amount of money.However, countless other people get paid as well. The support staff has a very effective role. This includes the trainers, coaches, nutritionists, chefs, doctors, etc.

Multiple new stadiums and other types of infrastructure get built and used. If more leagues for different sports spring up, new stadiums will have to be built and used.

This helps gain customers for people who sell team jerseys outside of stadiums, people who cook or sell food for the fans watching. Another example is also travel vehicles like when the entire team boards a flight or goes on a bus.

Apps get made related to the leagues. There are many people who make apps based on sports leagues.These apps include Dream11, MPL, My Team 11, and Fantasy Teams. This gives jobs to designers, marketers, analysts, researchers, and coders.

In summary, we can see that sports leagues impact the economy in many positive ways, through employment and infrastructure. This is called ‘Sports Economy’.
