Organisation and Good Governance
Funding, Sustainability, Good Governance, Safeguarding, Management, and Innovation
The functioning of grassroots sport relies on diverse funding sources. Volunteers are often the greatest asset of sports clubs and donate many working hours. Public funding, and funds generated by lottery and sports betting activities, provides earmarked funding and other funds that are available for free use. The solidarity mechanism within the European Sport Model is an important tool to ensure that a wide array of sports are being offered, also those with a lesser commercial potential, by redistributing revenues created by elite sports to benefit the grassroots sport.
Good governance projects have achieved reassuring results when intrinsically motivated and conducted by the sports movement itself. Sports and their structures vary from country to country, and thus there are no generalisable solutions but purposeful practices acknowledging the sports and country’s specificities.
