The Sport Transparency Index Kick Off Meeting

March 1, 2023

On the 1st of March 2023, a kick off meeting was held in London to start the Erasmus+ project called ‘ Sport Transparency Index’.

The kick off meeting was hosted by SIGA (Sport Integrity Global Alliance). EFDN as a project partner was present together with the VUB, FISG, FEDAS, IOTC, EPSI, FPN, EMCA UCLM and ICSS Europe. Integrity is the most fundamental value in sport. Without integrity, competition is meaningless. In the current climate, it is commonplace, and more often than not warranted, for all sports stakeholders to question the integrity within sport.

As part of this project, the following social media channels will be used in order to promote the project towards different target groups such as sports clubs, federations, specific public and sport stakeholders, league associations, professional sport clubs, grassroots sports organisations, sports associations, NGOs, Olympic committees including local, national and European authorities.

More about the project

The Sport Transparency Index project (Sport T-Index) has been devised to help support integrity interventions at the most fundamental level. It will help by benchmarking sports stakeholders, including clubs, leagues, national associations and international governing bodies using universally applicable and appropriate criteria to evaluate, compare and contrast them against basic integrity-related transparency indicators.

This will help to protect sport, as an entirety, from the bottom up and facilitate cross-sport linkages and shared knowledge. It will do this by shining a light on specific areas where transparency needs to improve, quantifying norms across sport, region, leagues and competitions and by recognizing those that truly champion integrity in sport. EFDN is really looking forward together with the project partner contribute to the integrity of sports.
