LONDON, June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to The Business Research Company’s spectator sports market research report, while spectator sports market trends involve a mix of technology to improve the experience, it is not at all close to being physically present in a stadium. COVID-19 brought about this disheartening realization in sports viewers. A survey was conducted by IBM in 2020 to analyze the satisfaction and digital experience of the viewers during the pandemic. Sports that were covered during this time were football, baseball, soccer, and extreme sports. The results showed that 45% of the sports enthusiasts missed watching live sports while 43% missed being in the atmosphere of the stadium. Moreover, nearly 45% of the sports fans felt that it was difficult to replicate the live experience with the help of technology. During the pandemic when live sports were not available, fans were staying connected to sports by re-watching old sports (38%) and exercising (37%), an interesting combination of virtual and physical engagement.

The global spectator sports market size is expected to now grow from $108.48 billion in 2020 to $132.6 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.2%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $183.45 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%.

Major players in the spectator sports industry are Dallas Cowboys, Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, New York Yankees.

According to a survey conducted by UK Sport more recently in April 2021, 97% of sport enthusiasts claimed likely to attend live sports events after the pandemic. Out of them, 75% were happy to return to the sports after 4 months with the Government’s approval. Moreover, sport enthusiasts responded favorably at 99% to attending a sports event held outdoors or in an outdoor stadium, while up to 88% stated that they would consider spectating in an indoor arena at this time. This shows the yearning for the full experience within the spectator sports market and is likely to easily boost its growth in the forecast period.
