Syneva Economics of Asheville recently did an economic impact study on the UNC Asheville Athletics Department for the 2011-12 academic year.

 

Here are some of the highlighted results from the study. Through local purchases and visitor spending, the UNC Asheville Athletics Department supports 140 local jobs each year (this does not include the department’s own employees), adds 4.3 million in local income and raises local output by $11.7 million. In addition, local purchases and visitor spending by UNC Asheville Athletics causes state and local tax revenues to increase by $715,000 each year and federal tax revenues by $878,000.

 

Sporting events held by UNC Asheville Athletics adds $4.3 million in local direct visitor spending each year, which by itself supports 70 local jobs, and raises local output by $5.6 million.

 

With future planned capital improvements, the UNC Asheville Athletics Department will support 166 local jobs each year (this does not include the department’s own employees), add $5.2 million in local income and raise local output by $14.1 million. In addition, the UNC Asheville Athletics Department will cause state and local tax revenues to increase $811,000 each year and federal tax revenues by $1 million.

 

“We were very pleased with the outcome of the study,” stated Joy Flora, Budget & Auxiliary Administration Liaison for the school.  “Athletics is clearly a key driver of growth for the University and for Western North Carolina.”
