BusinessFutures – The Future of Sport

Date: 21 September 2016 18:00 for 18:30 - 19:30

Type: ICAEW Governance and Research

Organiser: ICAEW

What does the future hold for grassroots sports clubs? Are they getting the funding to survive and play their role in society?

Currently 15.3 million people play sport once a week every week. As part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy Sport England promised to provide £493 million* in grass roots funding between 2013 & 2017. But where has this funding gone to? Do grass roots clubs see any of this?

Is elite sport sustainable if lower levels struggle for financial survival?

What difference should funding make to grass roots clubs?

Will Brexit affect funding?

What role does grass roots sports play?

BusinessFutures is an ICAEW project that looks at challenges business face over the next two decades and beyond. Sport is a new theme for 2016 where we will explore the challenges that the industry faces.

Come along and join us for the debate where these and other questions will be explored. There are no right or wrong answers it’s your views that count
