Nearly every sports club requires financial support and subsidies. Membership dues and public funding provide the mainstay of a club’s finances. They must be managed with particular care and used to facilitate verifiable sustainable development.
For sports clubs, the following goals are relevant to achieve sustainability:
- To warrant a healthy financial standing in the long term, sports clubs need to be forward-looking and progressive in their development going forward.
- Efficient and heedful use of membership fees
- Exhausting available financial support options – in sport and beyond
- The sports club fosters sustainable development by promoting sustainable behaviour among its members.
