About this article
This article has been written with NGBs recognised by Sport England in mind. Not all Sports Councils (UK Sport, sportscotland, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland) have the same strategy. However, the topics discussed will still have a great deal of relevance to any governing body in the UK, whether recognised by a sports council or not.
There will be winners, and there will be losers with this strategy. At one end, funding for sports has and will continue to increase. At the other end, some sports will see decreasing funding or even have funding withdrawn altogether.
Irrespective of where your NGB sits on this continuum, you will be under increasing pressure to be as commercially minded as possible and generate your own independent funding.
Funding for all other NGBs
For NGBs that are not recognised by one of the Sports Councils, the pressures of self-generated funding will not be a new concept either. They are already all too familiar with how important fund raising is, and that any new opportunity to raise funding should be investigated.
This opportunity is open to all NGBs whether recognised or not. Please contact us for more information.
