Dr. Jordan’s research focuses on the community benefits of mass participant sport events. Specifically, his research examines consumer expectations and satisfaction, motives for participation, commitment to the event and/or activity, and economic activity, all within the theoretical framework of involvement. Community-based mass participant sport events have the capacity to stimulate new money into the host economy, create and reinforce business opportunities, and facilitate social cohesion. However, there is need to conduct research in this area as empirical evidence supporting such claims is lacking.
