Economic sustainability

An event must be profitable for its organizers. Therefore a sound calculation of operating and follow-up costs, as well as sensible subsequent use, are decisive criteria and are particularly important with regard to the selection of a location and the building of sports facilities. Planning must also include compliance with international environmental and social standards.
