Master's Professional Reports Abstract

The Use of Public Funds to Finance Sports Facilities

This professional report will examine the extent to which the government entities help finance sports facilities by 1) taking a look at stadium finance history from the 1950s through today, 2) analyzing whether or not cities have realized all of the economic benefits of building/renovating a sports facility, 3) examining legislation that may change the current stadium finance picture, and 4) providing a financing recommendation for cities that are planning to build a sports venue.
