As part of ICSA: The Governance Institute’s series of thought-provoking reports into the future of governance in key areas of the UK economy, we are pleased to invite you to attend the launch of The Future of Sports Governance: Beyond Autonomy.
Sports bodies in the UK have experienced a whirlwind of governance challenges in recent years with the introduction of the Code for Sports Governance, high-profile allegations of abuse and bullying, safeguarding and duty of care concerns, as well as issues surrounding funding principles and the need for sustainability in terms of finances and support. These have taken place in a changed performance and business landscape. As a consequence, the idea that sport is somehow above politics and economic activity has and continues to be stretched, with many now questioning whether sport really functions in isolation from other factors. In short, has the autonomy of sporting bodies been so eroded that it no longer exists?
Launching the report will be a panel of sports and governance experts who will take your questions and debate the findings of the report. Join us to discuss if the sports sector can adapt to the governance challenges it faces and come out stronger.
