The estimation of the economic impact of a sporting event requires a careful methodology to avoid incursion into errors that overestimate its economic effect. In this work we quantify the spatial distribution of economic impact of Spanish Schools Boys Basketball Championship 2018. The event was organised in the city of Marín, Spain (25357 population), attended by a total of 1289 attendees with an economic impact (809 spectators and 480 participants). We utilise a database made up of 244 surveys, which has been designed to identify the spending generated by attendees by geographical areas. It is noticed that the host city makes an investment of economic and human resources in the organization of the event, but only gets 27% of the total economic impact. In this way, there is a leakage of 73% of the impact, 48% goes to the closest developed city and the remaining 25% of areas around the host city. The sustainability of the event for the host city is compromised, since it loses most of the economic benefit created by the event. Thus, the possible indirect and induced effects are also lessened.
