Together with Belgium, the Netherlands was one of the candidates to host the FIFA World Cup 2018. There is an ongoing debate about whether this event would have been beneficiary for the Netherlands. Several studies point out that the expected benefits for previous FIFA World Cups did not materialize due to certain effects as crowding out and leakage effects. This paper focusses on the increased employment which occurs as a result of increased financial flows. An input output model was designed for this purpose. With the model three scenarios were analysed. Finally, a sensitivity analysis was carried out.
