Stadium subsidies (paid for by the government) are the norm in America but not so much in Europe. I'm doing my university dissertation on whether the taxpayer should pay for Everton FC's stadium (given the £1bn economic boost). I've had to change my title to 'The role of the public in European sport stadia funding'. So, Everton will be my main case study but will use a few more examples from around Europe. I was wondering if you had any pointers for departments/groups/people/websites/literature please. Or if you had your own views / perspective of possible routes I could look into.
Examples of information I'd appreciate is around who owns stadia, the club or local government? Who pays for the stadia developments etc. Any example case studies would be great!
