Economic Impact & Resources

VISION STATEMENT
In 2030, Sport for All is appropriately recognised, and adequately funded, for its contribution to society.

STATE OF PLAY

The rich are getting richer. Science is getting smarter. Travel and transport are speeding up. The world is more advanced, and more accessible, than ever before. However, the spread of resources across the globe, financial and otherwise, is dramatically unfair. Oxfam predicted that the percentage of global wealth owned by the top 1% was on pace to surpass 50% by 2016. In sport, this contradiction is incredibly evident. At least 10 top European soccer players earn over US$14 million per year, whilst a program tackling juvenile crime through sport in the UK, reaching more than 70,000 youth receives only US$70 per person. That’s 0.0005% of what the leading soccer players receive. Across the board, and particularly between elite sports and Sport for All, we need to reassess the distribution of wealth, natural and man-made resources to better serve the global population.

OUR MISSION 2030

To make a change, the global SAPA Movement must:

  • Insist its governmental agencies invest heavily in grassroots sports and Sport for All, not just elite sports.
  • Build awareness within the private and elite sporting sectors of the economic contribution of Sport for All, and establish partnerships to aid the security and growth of Sport for All.
