The article discusses the connection between planning and usage of space when it comes to the places for following sports as well as the relationships between production and consumption of sports when it comes to its following. The incentive for this research were the disputes which arose over building new and luxury handball halls in six different Croatian cities for the organization of the World Handball Championship in 2009. Those objects are multifunctional but only their later purpose and usage will give a more coherent picture of their cost-effectiveness, not only financial, but also cultural and political. Since it has now become impossible to adequately analyze a certain phenomenon of the globalized sport in a consumerist society from the perspective of a single discipline, such as economy of sports, geography of sports or sociology of sports, this article relies on all the mentioned disciplines, as well as on the anthropology of consumption, to answer the question: Where and how we spend (on) sports?
