A multi-stakeholder dialogue on public policies and the French sports model
The main objective of the Sport Club is to promote a multi-stakeholder dialogue on topics related to current legislation and public policy in the field of sports. The club meets four to five times a year, in the form of dinner debates attended by between 40 and 60 people, public officials (mainly parliamentarians, but also members of the administration and ministerial cabinets, authorities and agencies) and economic actors in the sector (federations, leagues, sports partner companies, broadcasters, experts, etc.). These debates contribute to the collective reflection on the future of the French sports model, by allowing the exchange of information, good practices, experiences and points of view.
