Why Develop the UK’s International Sporting Relationships?

Our ambition is for the UK to play a leading role in its engagement with the international sporting community, in order to secure a strong platform for success in high performance and major events.

UK Sport’s high performance and major event hosting investment depends on the legitimacy and stability of the organisations that govern international sporting activity. Furthermore, International Federations regularly take decisions that directly impact on the UK’s ability to be successful in international sport – in areas such as rules, regulations, qualification processes, eligibility, new disciplines, doping issues and major event bidding. We therefore want to ensure that the voice of our sports is heard when international decisions are made.

Through its International Relations investment, UK Sport contributes by enabling National Governing Bodies to play a full part in their International Federations; develop leaders for international roles; and support other nations and sport bodies to strengthen their domestic structures through collaborative partnerships and projects.
