The International Cricket Council has announced the results of an economic impact survey carried out after last year’s World Cup in England, finding that the tournament helped to boost the UK’s economy by £350m ($449m/€404m).

The research was carried out on behalf of the ICC by London-based events advisory company The Sports Consultancy. The economic impact was generated by money spent in the country due to the event, as well as a boost to business-to-business supplier spending and broader consumer spend attributed to the Cricket World Cup.
