1.1 Definition and presentation

A sport event is a one-time technical or sporting effort pertaining to a single discipline that is held to promote that discipline's activities; they are one of the most complex categories of events to organize, especially when it comes to large competitions or tournaments. The most important pillars behind a sporting event are: the administrative area, the logistics, the Marketing and PR and the deployment of volunteers. Sporting events may be dived based on the organization behind, private or public and also on the size, mega-events, hallmark events, major events and minor events. The interesting aspect of sports events is the economic externalities created and the diversification of the players involved.

In 2021, the global market value of sporting events is expected to reach a value of USD 6.44 billion. The market is predicted to increase at a 49.04 % annual rate (CAGR 2021-2025), resulting in a projected market volume of USD 31.7 billion by 2025.

In Italy over 20 million people practice activities sports, while the sports sector is worth a significant share of the Italian GDP. The most popular sports in Italy are football, tennis, swimming, and rugby, not to mention Motogp and Formula 1. According to Istat, Italian families spend an average of € 212 monthly for recreational and sports services and events. Several people are involved in the sector which is going to explode after the end of the Covid Crisis with a return to full capacity for all the sports events.

E-sports, is a competitive video game activity that is organized as a tournament involving direct confrontations between people or teams. E-sports events are expected to become more popular in the future. The DreamHack and the Intel Extreme Masters, which fill whole football stadiums, are the most well-known traveling competitions that do not yet include Italy. In this country, there is therefore still a huge market opportunity with minimal competition.
