Subject. This article analyzes the sports parameters necessary to create a valuable end product.
Objectives. Based on the comprehensive analysis, the article aims to evaluate key indicators associated with a sports valuable end product creation.
Methods. For the study, I used a statistical analysis.
Results. Based on the comprehensive analysis of the input data on financing, number of athletes, and the purchasing power, using time series, the article presents equations which can help make predictions and use them in further planning. The article also shows the average cost of creating one unit of valuable end product by year for the period 2010–2019.
Conclusions. Positive dynamics indicate that the number of athletes in national sports teams (valuable end products) is increasing. However, their number is still insufficient.
