The 2013 call for proposals of the Preparatory Action was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 26 April 2013 . The deadline for applications was 19 July. In total, 135 applications were received. Following the evaluation, the Commission decided to finance 15 projects with a total amount of € 2.8 million. The 15 selected projects cover the three areas of this year's call for proposals:

  • Strengthening of good governance and dual careers in sport through support for the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations.
  • Protecting athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions.
  • Promoting traditional European sports and games.

The projects will be implemented between the January 2013 and mid-2015.
