SportAccord (Strategic Partner)

What is the common thread between global sports such as floorball, hockey, tennis, equestrian and football?

Unbeknownst to many, there is an organisation tying these and many other sports together. 89 global sports, to be precise.

Introducing SportAccord, the international sports federation union, which is driving the sports movement forward in the ever-changing millennium. At the heart of the sport movement, SportAccord is the global representative, providing value and services to all its 107 members.

SportAccord remains committed to the core interests of all its member federations and provides them with a common platform from where to debate, discuss and decide. In addition, SportAccord provides the following services to all its members-

1. Doping-free sport- Through its Doping Free Sports Unit (DFSU), SportAccord provides doping control services to members, which are aimed at ensuring a clean sports world for all.

2. Governance Relations & Development- SportAccord is the international sports body which recognizes international sport federations. It monitors governance, regulations and development in sport worldwide. It provides guidance on these matters upon request from its members. It also follows international initiatives and work groups discussing public policies, while further providing expertise on the international federations’ perspectives.

3. Marketing and communications- SportAccord marketing and communications are aimed at deriving maximum value and exposure for its members, through traditional and non-traditional forms of communication.
