Conference on sustainable funding models for grassroots sports in the internal market

On 16 February 2010, the Commission organised a conference to give all interested parties the opportunity to give their views on the financing of grassroots sports (i.e. sport for all). The aim was to present the various financing systems across sports disciplines and Member states, to discuss the impact of the economic crisis on grassroots sports financing and identify possible future challenges. The agenda of the conference together with all presentations made during that day are available here.

In addition, a number of disciplines and countries were selected to be analysed in more detail in the next phase of the study on the financing of grassroots sports. Indeed, in line with White Paper on Sport accompanied by the Pierre de Coubertin Action Plan the European Commission launched a study on the funding of grassroots sport in the 27 Member States. The study aims at analysing barriers to sport funding and identifying means of strengthening the development of grassroots sport across the European Union. The results of the study are expected by the end of 2010.

Further information about that European Conference is available here.
