2020 EU Sport Forum

Zagreb, Croatia


Due to the current coronavirus 2019-nCov situation, the EU Sport Forum 2020 is postponed.

We will keep you informed of the new date as soon as the situation will allow it.

Welcome to the Forum!

The EU Sport Forum is the European Commission's premiere event in support of expanding sporting activities and programmes across Europe.  Hundreds of high-level participants - including representatives of sport movement, federations, sport clubs, Member States / sport ministries, local authorities, academics, athletes and various sport organisations - gather to discuss how the sport and physical activity can be harnessed to build a closer, more cohesive Europe.

Continuing last year's success

The 2019 EU Sport Forum gathered almost 500 high-level delegates from across sport and public policy. Under the overarching theme “The future of sport in the EU: challenges and perspectives for grassroots and professional sport”, the Forum addressed a range of topics during plenary and breakout sessions

The Forum also addressed important topical issues in the area of sport – such as the future of the anti-doping system, the voice of athletes, the promotion of grassroots sport, justice in sport, and the challenges facing the promotion of less popular sports
