E-mail Print

In its September 1998 working paper the Commission identified sport as performing five functions: an educational, a public health, a social, a cultural and a recreational function. In economic terms sport is a rapidly growing area accounting for 3% of world trade and is one of the sectors most likely to generate new employment.
