The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) held its biennial conference, Our Sporting Futures, on 29 and 30 July 2010. At this event, Brian Parmenter, who leads the Economy-wide modelling team at Frontier (Australia), presented the results of a study into the economic contribution of sport to Australia. The study identified three main ways in which sport delivers benefits to the economy, above those gained directly by providers of sport services or by participants.

The study was commissioned by ASC and undertaken by Frontier.
