To welcome Universiade Taipei 2017, the Taipei city government as the host city, has been working on some software and hardware construction projects, offers training for recruiting volunteers and runs campaigns for sponsorship and sports marketing. All activities are now in place in consecutive order. However, after the event tournament is held, the government should think more actively about how to attract more attention from foreign tourists by introducing humanistic features at the local markets and thus it can engage people to play sports by improving their habits, which in the end can boost economic growth. Consequently, it is thus suggested that the future development strategy of the sport industry can start from building basic data for the industry, industry clusters and horizontal alliances, and big data integration in hopes that such an action can build a sport-friendly environment, and increase the percentage of people who wish to play sports. It helps the sports industry to inject new vitality.
