Thoughts on the data
•
Sport as a good
• Sports participation is a “normal good” – demand increases with
income
• Correlation between GDP and household expenditure
•
The “club goods” problem:
• Low income communities have no swimming pools
• Rich communities have private pools
• Communal swimming clubs are a middle income solution
•
Future of funding of grassroots sport
• Outlook could be bleak if household spending under pressure
• Government unlikely to fill the gap
Funding Opportunities- Mainstream Funding
Sports related projects are funded in the EU- BUT projects must meet the goals
of other funding streams
Youth in Action- Young people (13- 30); youth exchanges, youth initiatives and
the exchange in volunteers
Lifelong Learning- Education and training
Europe for Citizens- European citizen programmes; bigger, pan-European
organisations can also apply for structural support
Health Programme- Sports related projects for healthy lifestyles and health
enhancing physical activity are possible
DAPHNE- projects designed to prevent or combat violence against children,
young people and women
Future Funding
The Commission has proposed that a specific sport sub-programme is included
in the wider Education Europe programme from 2014.
• Tackling transnational threats- doping, violence, racism, intolerance
• Developing European co-operation e.g. creating guidelines for good
governance and dual careers
• Supporting grassroots sport organisations addressing wider socioeconomic
challenges
