What’s more, recent scandals that have affected the world of sport can be directly related to misgovernance. Research Handbook on Sport Governance aims to gather the state-of-the art research on sports governance. It offers a vital reference point for advancing research on the matter, while illustrating different approaches and perspectives, such as good governance principles, systemic governance, political governance and network governance.

Chapter 4: Support the Implementation of Good Governance in Sport (SIGGS): a European project for national Olympic committees and national sport federations

Thierry Zintz and Simon Gérard


This chapter contextualises good governance in sport through conceptual and stakeholder approaches. It describes actual issues related to the governance of sport and delivers in-depth analysis of the 2015–2016 ‘Support the Implementation of Good Governance in Sport’ (SIGGS) project outcomes. This project consists of 1) raising awareness on good governance in sport in Europe and beyond, 2) transferring know-how and expertise between the project partners, 3) enhancing the governance of national Olympic committees (NOCs) and national federations (NFs) by providing tools, 4) identifying experts and good practice examples in the different countries, 5) establishing national contact points for good governance and national networks to make national good governance activities more sustainable and 6) developing national strategies (sustainability models) for future years and starting a process towards better governance that goes beyond the lifetime of the project. This ‘practical and customised’ approach makes the SIGGS project unique.
