WOS – Werkgevers Organisatie in de Sport

  • Netherlands

The purpose of the Dutch Employers Organisation for the Sports sector, hereafter referred to as the WOS, is to represent the interests of its members in the broad field of labour relations. The WOS was founded on 8 April 1986 and largely supports organisations of a voluntary nature. The WOS has 7 employees.

Members are typically:

  • rural and regional / provincial sports organisations / sports federations,
  • sports organisations at local level,
  • sports councils at local, provincial and regional level.

The 30,000 sports clubs in the Netherlands are members of a sports federation and in most cases are direct members of the WOS.

Since 2014 the WOS provides the running of the secretariat of EASE. EASE stands for the European Association of Sport Employers.
