This action seeks to give the opportunity to sport organisations to develop and promote new forms of practicing sport and physical activity through the adaptation of infrastructure and/or the offer of sport activities and programmes.

In total, 141 applications were received.

The practice of sport and physical activity in Europe traditionally takes place in the framework of sport clubs and organisations. These traditional structures organise sport practices in accordance with stable rules ('the rules of the game').

Individual needs and preferences regarding sport are rapidly evolving. There is a rising mismatch between the supply of sport via traditional sport organisations and the demand of individuals. To attract a new generation of athletes, sport federations, organisations and clubs should make the projects they offer more creative and innovative.
