ESPN’s™ Greatest Sporting Cities

In 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 ESPN commissioned me to conduct research on the UKs greatest sporting city. The schedule of work involved using a statistical composite of indicators derived from factors established in 2015 to rank cities in terms of sporting success.

A statistical construction of a composite indicator reflecting factors that encapsulate a Great Sporting City was employed to facilitate this objective. This process comprises quantitative data collection and analysis. Data were collected via a combination of: (a) data mining for freely available information; and (b) a survey soliciting fan satisfaction with factors associated with a Great Sporting City.

The collected data were analyzed using a weighted ranking of composite indicators.

The 2015 ranking is avalaible here:
