Sport is one major pillar of health in our society. Sport clubs – on every level of professionalism – take a leading role in offering grassroot sports activities to European citizens and therefore contribute to public health.
WHO is adressed by SportGO?
Semi-professional sport clubs can be compared to companies. Sport clubs provide services for their members and non-members with scarce resources (e.g. sport facilities, coaches, financial resources) like companies do. Another similarity is, that, like companies, sport clubs are also in competition with other organisations.
Did you KNOW?
7% of the respondents from Europe answered that they are volunteering in sports. Among the activities mentioned one can find organizing or helping to run a sporting event (35% of all volunteering), being a member of a board or committee (22%) and doing administrative tasks (16%). Most of the volunteers spend up to 20 hours per month – in total 55% (28% spend up to 5 hours, 27% spend 6 to 20 hours) – or spend time occasionally by giving support at individual events, while 8% spend more than 20 hours a month.
