Over the last two decades, there has been a\ud new trend emerging within sport, which has\ud seen a shift, from investment for the sake of\ud sport, to investment in sport for good (Sport\ud England, 2008). In the context of the latter\ud approach, there has been an emergence of\ud the use of sport to address regeneration objectives,\ud largely stemming from the belief of government\ud and other sporting and non-sporting\ud organizations, that it can confer a wide range\ud of economic and social benefits to individuals\ud and communities beyond those of a purely\ud physical sporting nature, and can contribute\ud positively to the revitalization of declining\ud urban areas (BURA, 2003). This commentary\ud will examine regeneration legacy in the context\ud of the London Olympic Games. In particular,\ud it will focus on the use of sports stadia\ud as a tool for delivering economic and social\ud change, and by drawing upon previous examples,\ud suggest lessons London can learn to\ud enhance regeneration legacies beyond 2012.
