S4GG Project outcomes presented at Play the Game Conference

On 28-31 October 2013, in cooperation with the Danish Institute for Sports Studies, Play the Game organised their biannual Play the Game Conference. This edition was held in Aarhus, Denmark. On the agenda were topics such as good governance, integrity issues (such as the fight against match-fixing, corruption and doping), democracy in sport and participation. The four day event featured many speakers including Yves Le Lostecque, Head of the Sport Unit of the European Commission, who provided a presentation on the role of the European Union in sports governance.

The agenda also included a session on the “EU projects in the field of good governance”, during which the “Sport 4 Good Governance” Project (S4GG), managed by the EOC EU Office, was presented. Particular emphasis was put on the results of the questionnaire. By applying the S4GG Index, particular strengths and weaknesses of the implementation of good governance principles by sport organisations at different levels were identified. This information contributed to a lively discussion on good governance in European sport.
