Inside The Academy

One of the three themes of the Academy is 'Revenues: How can you unlock potential new revenues source?' Sports organisations are traditionally financially dependent on government support and corporate sponsorship. However, as government budgets vary and attracting commercial sponsors continues to become increasingly difficult, sports organisations need to find new ways to increase their revenues so they can stay competitive. In this session of the Academy programme, new and innovative approaches to revenue generation will be presented and discussed: approaches that have been tried and tested and have delivered proven results, for both big and small sports organisations. The Academy is a unique opportunity to join other leaders in sport to make a difference for both the future of your organisation but also your own future. Don't miss it!
