The aim of this study is to answer the question: How to measure the impacts of sport events in a commensurable way. A model for measuring the impacts of a sport event from sustainability perspectives and in a common monetary metric is tested. Contingent valuation method, direct economic impact assessment and ecological footprint analysis are used to estimate the event impacts. The model is applied to a three day long European athletics indoor championship 2013 and the results demonstrate a possibility to produce a sustainability impact analysis in a uniform metric. Measured in monetary terms, socio-cultural impacts carry more weight than economic impacts do whereas environmental impacts have little importance for the total assessment. The tested model constitutes a promising method to develop a more holistic assessment of sport events.
