***Full-scale policy conference taking place online***
Taking place against the backdrop of the success of Team GB in the delayed 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this conference provides a timely opportunity to discuss how to build on successes in elite sport, support grassroots sport, and address issues regarding the financial sustainability of sport going forward.
Areas for discussion include:
- elite sport - assessing the way forward for support, the governance priorities for building on success, and the long-term outlook for elite sport funding
- grassroots - ensuring the financial sustainability of grassroots sports networks and assessing what more needs to be done to encourage participation moving forward
- the impact of COVID-19 - on attitudes towards public health and exercise, and what additional support might be required as the sector moves forward from the pandemic
- governance - implications of the Government’s fan-led review of football, as well as issues for safety, liability, and duty of care in the sector
- media - innovation in commercial broadcasting, online distribution, and the revenues associated with it, looking at partnerships, regulation, and changing patterns of consumption
- finances - sponsorship deals and the long-term outlook for sports funding and sustainability across all levels of UK sport
