FUNDING BY GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS




SERVICE INDUSTRIES SURVEY 2000-01

From information provided for the 2000-01 Service Industries Survey, it was estimated that businesses mainly engaged in operating sports and physical recreation venues, or providing sports and physical recreation services, received $158.8m in Government funding during 2000-01. Almost half of this (47.2% or $74.9m) was funding provided to administrative organisations. Approximately another third (33.8% or $53.6m) was for businesses operating venues. Of the venue funding, nearly all ($52.5m) went to businesses operating venues other than health and fitness centres or gymnasia.


It was estimated that Sponsorship and fundraising income contributed $477.2m to the total income of businesses mainly engaged in operating sports and physical recreation venues, or providing sports and physical recreation services. Clubs, teams and sports professionals took slightly more than half of this (52.9% or $252.3m), while another 38.5% ($183.9m) went to administrative organisations. In both cases Financial sponsorships were by far the most important source of Sponsorship and fundraising income and contributed 77.4% ($195.3m) for clubs, teams and sports professionals; and 91.6% ($168.5m) for administrative organisations.
