March 13 – The EU Sport Forum in Malta last week was another opportunity for the Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) to drive forward its programme of sports governance and integrity recommendations for sport, as well as increase its own credentials as an independent coalition of sports organisation.
A delegation led by SIGA co-ordinator Emanuel Medeiros met with international sport stakeholders and European institutions to discuss key issues affecting European sport policy.
A statement from the SIGA Council said: “The discussions SIGA members have participated in at the EU Sport Forum were very productive.
“There is growing consensus that more needs to be done to safeguard the integrity of sport and drive forward effective reforms for the entire sports community. We would like to thank the European Commission for their engagement with SIGA and for their continued interest as we develop.”
Although still a fledgling organisation SIGA has more than 80 international multi-industry supporters, bring under its banner sport, governments, academia, international organisations, sponsors, business, rights holders, NGOs and professional services companies worldwide.
