The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of sport are to:

  • Tackle cross-border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match fixing and violence, as well as all kinds of intolerance and discrimination;
  • Promote and support good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes;
  • Promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity, through increased participation in, and equal access to sport for all.

The Actions implemented in the field of sport are:

1. Collaborative Partnerships;

2. Not-for-profit European sport events.

The Actions in the field of sport are expected to result in the development of the European dimension in sport by generating, sharing and spreading experiences and knowledge about different issues affecting sport at the European level.

Ultimately, sport projects supported through Erasmus+ should lead to increased levels of participation in sport, physical activity and voluntary activity.
