A Code for Sports Governance
Developed by UK Sport and Sport England, this Code of good Governance is not being launched in a vacuum. In recent years, the UK’s sports sector has shown measurable and substantial improvement in its governance. Many sports organisations have shown a desire and commitment to own their own governance and ensure that it is fit for purpose. There is though still much to do. Diversity in sports sector boardrooms is still an issue and requires sustainable change. This Code is an opportunity for public investors to work hand-in-hand with the sector to continue this journey. Some organisations are further ahead than others, and many Requirements will stretch organisations beyond where they are now.
