Hackney Publications, the nation’s leading publisher of sports law publications, and Cimarron Global Solutions, renowned for their research in sport and tourism, has announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind publication examining the impact of sporting events on cities, states, regions, and countries.

The publication, titled Creating Community Through Sport, will be published six times a year and will leverage Cimarron’s industry thought leadership and Hackney Publications’ proven editorial expertise.

In addition, the companies invite industry experts to get involved with this new industry publication and create valuable content for readers.

“I have known Dr. Jennifer Stoll, the founder of Cimarron, for more than a decade,” said Holt Hackney, the CEO of Hackney Publications. “Her astute insights about the impact that sporting events can have on municipalities and communities are unparalleled in the industry. We’re very excited to be able to share her observations with those in charge of evaluating the benefits of hosting such events.”
